Pilates has lately being on the top of the radar of the fitness enthusiasts. Here are few compelling reasons to include them in your fitness routine:
A whole body fitness mantra:
Unlike some forms of exercise, Pilates does not over-develop some parts of the body and neglect others. While Pilates training focuses on core strength, it trains the body as an integrated whole. Pilates workouts promote strength and balanced muscle development as well as flexibility and increased range of motion for the joints.
Creates strength without bulk:
Long, lean muscles are the name of the game here. In Pilates, we are not looking to build muscles for show. We are building toned muscles that work perfectly within the context of the body as a whole, and the functional fitness needs of a person as they move through life.
Works on Flexibility:
In Pilates, we work toward a safe increase in length and stretch of the muscles and range of motion within the joints. Hence it works wonder on adding flexibility to the body and joints.
Pilates gets the breath and circulation moving, stimulates the spine and muscles, and floods the body with the good feelings one gets from exercising the whole body.
Promotes Weight Loss and Long, Lean Appearance:
If you practice Pilates regularly, it will change your body. Known for creating long, strong muscles and a leaner look; Pilates improves muscle tone, balances musculature, supports beautiful posture, and teaches you to move with ease and grace. All of these things will make you look and feel very fit.
