PILATES CERTIFIED STUDIO

WHAT IS PILATES
Pilates is a form of exercise developed by Joseph Pilates. Pilates emphasizes the balanced development of the body through core strength and flexibility.
It's a system of controlled exercises that engage and condition the total body. It is a balanced blend of strength and flexibility training that improves posture, reduces stress, and creates long, lean muscles without bulking up.
It focuses on quality of movement rather than quantity. It makes one feel invigorated rather than exhausted after each session. Pilates is a balanced approach so that no muscle group is overworked.

WHAT AGE GROUP IS PILATES FOR?
Pilates can be beneficial for virtually all ages, fitness levels and body conditions. The method is like a bridge between physical fitness and physical therapy. It can be adapted, modified and customized for individual needs.
WHAT IS BETTER, MAT OR EQUIPMENT PILATES EXERCISE?
It is not a matter of one being better than another. The fundamental Pilates workout can be performed on a Pilates mat alone and get great results. However, the various equipment pieces such as the Reformer, Cadillac, and Chair incorporate light spring resistance that works like concentric and eccentric muscle contractions. This safely sculpts, tones, and stretches the muscles.
HOW OFTEN SHOULD I DO PILATES?
2-4 times a week along with some type of cardiovascular activity. Remember, once a week better than not doing any at all.
PRIVATE ONE-ON-ONE SESSION
