Pilates is a system of strength training based on developing a strong core (abdominals, back & glutes) and maintaining or restoring the natural alignment and articulation of the spine. Pilates is a holistic form of fitness, where each exercise considers proper breathing and alignment of the entire body.

benefits of pilates

The following are possible benefits of a consistent pilates practice: full body tone - including longer, leaner appearing muscles such as slender thighs & flat, defined abs; improved posture: restoring and preserving the natural curves and mobility of the spine; reduced back pain; increased balance, core strength, stability & peripheral mobility; injury risk reduction through strengthening and re-balancing the muscles around joints; enhanced functional fitness: move with more ease when accomplishing everyday tasks; heightened body awareness & concentration through strengthened mind/body connection; cross training for sports performance: greater core alignment & co-ordination benefits balance & agility; increased blood lfow to the brain oxygenates the blood and improves circulation through breath work.

equipment & training: Mat vs. Reformer

The beauty of pilates is that no special equipment is necessary to get started. Pilates mat exercises require a padded mat and you! All pilates repertoire workouts are designed to provide a full body workout. That said, the use of equipment and small props can target & isolate specific areas of the body to train them more effectively. Working on an unstable surface such as stability balls or the BOSU® will provide increased challenge to co-ordination and balance. The Professional Reformer is a piece of fitness equipment designed specifically for pilates workouts and includes a moving carriage & springs to increase resistance. The reformer is generally known for more focused training of the periphery (arms & legs) while pilates mat workouts are known for more focused training of the core (abs, back & glutes).

My weight loss was a COMPLETE success. I have been packing on excess weight for almost 3colon closed years now. Making lifestyle changes may be scary at first, but I have learned that it's more then benefitting physically.

Your entire outlook changes when you really start to take care of yourself inside & out. Knowing that I have the power to control what I eat and realizing that adding in even 30-minutes of exercise is so easy to do! The weekly accountability was the most important part of the coaching process for me.

I really believe I never would have been able to lose the weight or make changes on my own. I definitely recommend coaching to others because I know that if it worked for me, it will work for anyone!
