After years of dancing, playing sports and always being very active I suffered terribly with back pain, debilitating pain, that caused me to stop dancing and feel I just had to live with the pain. Since enjoying Fitness Pilates on a regular basis I can confidently say my back, core strength and posture have improved immensely. I teach fitness classes most days and if it was not for Fitness Pilates I would not be able to continue
I want you to enjoy these benefits, to feel amazing and to live life to the full.
Benefit #1 - Improve Core Strength using Pilates
Pilates is famously known for its emphasis on the core - our built in corset that aids all our everyday movements. Fitness Pilates is a functional form of Pilates, with lots of standing work, that builds on your strength in everyday life, after all, we do not spend our life lying down.
The core is all of the surrounding muscles of the trunk that when strengthened and pliable, support and stabilize the body.
Pilates improves core strength and function. Core strength is a key factor in decreasing back and hip pain, decreasing pelvic floor dysfunction, and is the area from which explosive movement derives, hence its nickname “the powerhouse.”
Benefit #2 - Pilates Improves Posture
Your parents had the right idea when they told you to stop slouching and sit up straight.
Improved posture is the difference between weak, imbalanced muscles, headaches, shoulder or back pain, and sitting or standing tall with ease.
Pilates focuses on the full body’s alignment, ideal range of motion at the joints, and a balance of all opposing muscles. It improves posture by bringing awareness to your alignment and strengthening neglected postural muscles.
Benefit #3 - Pilates decreases back pain
From personal experience with back pain I can definitely recommend Fitness Pilates to help you reconnect with your inner muscles.
Pilates targets the deeper abdominal muscles and the pelvic floor to both contract and release — a true sign of strength. These muscles work like a brace to lift and support the organs and protect and stabilize the back.
Benefit #4 - Pilates prevents injury
In my line of work I need to keep strong, not only for myself but for my lovely clients. I love teaching Fitness Pilates and I can definitely say that without it I would not be able to do the higher impact classes such as aerobics and Zumba.
Fitness Pilates is very dynamic and it builds on this strength to balance the muscles of the body so they are not too weak or strong but work in harmony together.
Benefit #5 - Pilates decreases stress
Wouldn't we all like to be less stressed! Taking time to focus on your breathing, connect with your inner muscles and make time for YOU are all so important. I personally feel very in-tune with my body so I can read the signs of discomfort and pain and react in a beneficial way.
