A body with balanced strength and flexibility is less likely to be injured.
Pilates is a fluid method of training, vs. a typical “exercise” regimen. It improves your physical performance and the way you move, improving your posture and balancing your strength and flexibility by retraining the body to move in new, pain-free ways.
Pilates helps us counter the chronic effects from prolonged sitting at work or our near constant use of technology, and even prevents injury and pain from travel and commuting.
Pilates is invaluable for overall fitness and wellness. It brings a sense of well-being and makes a difference in your health without taking a toll on your body. Pilates is mindful movement that can positively change lives.
And, whether you’re a weekend warrior or an elite professional, athletes are discovering that Pilates provides them with a competitive edge:
Hit the Ball Further, focusing on balance and core strength
Run Faster, by improving gait
Jump Higher, increasing trunk stability and core strength
And, for pitchers and quarterbacks, we correct muscle imbalances from those repetitive movements. For ice skaters and dancers, we prevent Injury by improving core strength and emphasizing proper stretching
At the heart of Pilates, we help develop your core…the deep abdominal muscles including the transverse abdominis, the inner and outer obliques, and the muscles closest to the spine such as the psoas major, quadrus laborium and the interspinales. This makes you more agile and helps prevent injury.
