The core is the center of the body just like the center of the Earth. Everything is connected to that. Movement depends on the ability of the core to operate. When you strengthen your core you gain greater flexibility and improve your quality of life as you age.
You get the definition in the muscles through the way we teach you to use the resistance on the Pilates Reformer machines. This very precise slower movement of building the muscle and then lengthening it within the same routine results in longer leaner muscles. You’ll have a smaller shape and a better physique.
Toned abs & arms, firm butt & thighs. When we teach, we follow the core principals of Pilates. We teach you the correct way of engaging your muscles without using momentum like some weight exercises do. We focus on every little muscle in your body as well as the big ones. Focusing on the small muscles help define the larger ones. Toning comes from the way the exercises define the muscles.
Pilates was developed for rehabilitation and as such with those principals in mind it helps in spinal movement and increase overall flexibility. Conventional workouts tend to focus on the same muscles over and over again. Subsequently this means that weak muscles get weaker and strong muscles get stronger. The net result is muscular imbalance - a primary cause of injury and back and neck pains. With Pilates Reformer you’ll avoid this, help slow down the effects of ageing and prolong your body through life.
Many athletes include Pilates Reformer as part of their training plans to ensure that no muscle groups are over or under trained, the body is nicely balanced and the core is strong. As the smaller muscles are also trained, it reduces the chance of injury and increases performance. With gentled efffective excercise it is also also fantastic for athletes who are recovering from injuries.
You’ll be over the moon to know that Pilates classes are also really exciting! Try it then try them all over again!
