Benefits Of Pilates

Everyone can do Pilates

Pilates principles apply to everyone, no matter what your level of fitness is. Whether you are a professional athlete or an older person who has just started to exercise, the principles of Pilates movements will benefit you and your body. Pilates is for everyone because it focuses on improving posture, core strength and the connection between body and mind.

Pilates builds long and strong muscles.

Pilates will help you build lean muscles to complement your overall fitness and functional fitness.

This type of contraction occurs when the muscle lengthens while under tension. Pilates uses this to build strong, long muscles. You will often be required to move slowly and resist gravity when doing Pilates moves. For example, a triceps pressup or releasing tension from a Pilates ring.

Pilates improves flexibility

Although there aren’t as many poses that look like pretzels in Pilates as there are in yoga, a flexible body that can bend and stretch to fit the flow of your life is an achievable and healthy goal. In Pilates, the goal is to achieve a safe expansion of muscle length, flexibility, and range-of-motion.

Pilates improves your energy

Pilates is a great way to improve your breathing, circulation and muscles. It also infuses positive feelings into the body by working the entire body.

As you exercise, your energy level will increase. As your energy increases, you’ll be more motivated to exercise. Pilates is an excellent low-impact workout that you can do on a regular basis.
