Pilates is a non-impact, non-aerobic, deep muscle conditioning method that strengthens the body’s "powerhouse" — the abdominal, gluteal and back muscles. It improves flexibility and posture while strengthening the muscles deep in the torso and around the spine to help prevent injuries and alleviate chronic pain. It can help sculpt long, lean muscles from head to toe, improve coordination, correct body imbalances, and prevent osteoporosis. Pilates provides total body conditioning without the bulked-up results of weight training. The exercises can be modified to range from gentle to challenging, depending on your fitness level and goals. The Pilates method is so safe and so effective, it’s used in physical therapy facilities to rehabilitate injuries. Discover for yourself why Pilates is one of the hottest trends in mind-body fitness.
