Did you know that Pilates is not only a way to improve your core stability but also a great way to develop sports specific strength and conditioning? Pilates is becoming increasingly popular within the sporting population and the number of men participating in Clinical Pilates is on the rise. Here are five reasons why Pilates may benefit you or your partner:
Improve Flexibilty -Pilates increases your range of movement to make you more flexible and mobile while decreasing your aches and pains.
Improve muscle tone – Pilates improves muscle tone, balances musculature, supports posture, and teaches you to move with ease. Muscles become leaner not bulkier and general tone can improve with regular practice.
Strengthen neglected muscle groups – Pilates offers functional strength, meaning the body must maintain correct posture and muscle patterns while building strength. This brings the often neglected muscles in to work with the more common muscles trained.
Reduce the risk of injury – Doing the same sport over and over can weaken muscles that are not used enough, and you keep over using the same muscles until they are strained and sore. Pilates balances the musculature of your body, letting you enjoy other sports and daily activities with greater ease and less.
- Improve posture – Poor posture is very common in todays society. Good posture is a reflection of good alignment supported by a strong core. It is a position from which one can move freely. Pilates will address any poor posture issue you may have.
