Pilates is simple doesn’t require a lot of extra weights or gadgets, rather it uses your own ability to precisely control your muscles to build quiet strength.By strengthening your core, you develop an internal power that serves you every day in every activity you do.
By working every muscle in your body and allowing them all to share in the effort, Pilates can put you in balance and undo pain resulting from overused or overstressed muscles.
Pilates also works some of the micro-muscles that other workouts neglect. These stabilizing muscles take some of the brunts off the larger ones, like your hamstrings and glutes, that can be vulnerable to injury.
Overall, pilates is an excellent complement to total body health with benefits not seen in many popular workouts. It strengthens your core, reduces stress, and increases your metabolism. Contact our providers to learn more!
