What is Fitness Pilates?
Fitness Pilates is more of a functional approach to the traditional Pilates class. It still applies the main principles of Pilates but with a broader spectrum of exercises to add variety in every class such as the use of a bender ball or light hand weights.
It is a form of exercise suitable for everyone – men and women of all ages and fitness levels. It is a low-impact conditioning class using simple effective movements, helping correct imbalances, improve posture, develop core stability, release stress and prevent injuries.
The class is suitable for beginners as all exercises have beginner, intermediate and advanced options. There is a lovely relaxation section at the end to really help you unwind and relax.
How does it work?
Pilates exercises target the key postural muscles building strength from within creating a girdle of strength around the torso. Joseph Pilates called this the Powerhouse. The core centre of the body (the lower back and abdomen) are supported and strengthened, enabling the rest of the body to move freely.
The principles of Pilates are concentration, breathing, relaxation, body alignment, flow and body awareness. You will definitely feel the benefit.
