Pilates is ideal for developing a stronger core. It will help to reduce back pain caused by compensatory muscle weakness by strengthening the lower back. In addition Pilates will improve your posture and flatten your tummy. In fact, Pilates conditions the whole body, even the ankles and feet. This is why so many sports professionals now use Pilates.
Pilates is a series of exercises performed on the floor using gravity and your own body weight to provide resistance. The main aim is to condition the deeper, supporting muscles of your body to improve posture, balance and coordination.
Pilates is inspired by calisthenics, yoga and ballet. Pilates lengthens and stretches all the major muscle groups in the body in a balanced fashion. In Pilates, your muscles are never worked to exhaustion, so there is no sweating or straining, just intense concentration.
