Pilates is a workout system that focuses on stretching, breathing and core strengthening. It’s based on the idea that a strong core is the key to flexibility and overall fitness. Using bodyweight exercises, Pilates helps strengthen your core and tighten and tone muscles in the process. Anyone can do Pilates, even if you're not an athlete. It's a great way to get in shape and stay in shape. And it's also a fun way to exercise. Because it’s a full-body workout, Pilates is great for people of all ages. It's also great for:
People who have physical limitations that make other types of exercise difficult.
People who have joint issues, like arthritis, because it doesn't put any stress on the joints.
Pregnant women and people with chronic back pain.
Pilates strengthens the muscles that support the spine, so it's great for people who suffer from low back pain. It also strengthens the muscles of the abdomen and the pelvic floor.
