Pilates

Pilates is a system of movement and exercise created and developed by German-born athlete, Joseph Hubertus Pilates. His innovative method educates, re-patterns, realigns, and balances your body. It teaches body awareness, good posture, restores physical vitality, invigorates the mind, and elevates the spirit. Joe designed Pilates to help develop the natural skill that will allow you to gain muscular power with corresponding endurance, ability to perform arduous duties, and to work or travel for long periods of time without undue body fatigue of mental strain. This means you are able to perform everyday activities with ease and perfection.

Types of Pilates

Pilates Reformer training is the perfect workout. It is the most versatile piece of Pilates equipment. Using straps, resistance cords and pulleys on a sliding carriage, Reformer exercises are ideal for shaping muscles and creating proper alignment.

Mat Pilates

Mat Pilates is series of floor exercises executed on the mat. This class introduces the fundamentals and principles of the classical Pilates Method of exercise, while engaging the mind with the body to create movements involving the whole body.

Jump Board Pilates

Jump Board Pilates is executed with a jump board attached to the end of the reformer. You will reach and maintain your target heart rate as effectively as with a treadmill. Unlike the treadmill, Jump Board Pilates is low impact and gentle on your joints.

Men’s Reformer

Pilates is often misconceived as being too slow-paced and gentle, and unfortunately this means that a lot of men believe that it’s an exercise just for women. But this couldn’t be further from the truth and Pilates can be just as challenging as working hard in the gym. In fact, most men will actually benefit even more from Pilates than lifting heavy weights or running on the treadmill.

Here are 5 benefits men can expect to achieve from doing Pilates:

  1. Develop neglected muscle groups. Some of your muscles, like those that dominate your daily movements, are stronger than others, and a big part of Pilates is focusing on those muscles that don’t typically get a lot of attention.
  2. Improve flexibility. In general, the more muscle mass you have, the less flexible you are. Pilates focuses on stretching and lengthening the muscles, which help prevent injuries and muscle strains.
  3. Build core strength. Every Pilates exercise focuses on using your core to power movement in your limbs. Pilates trains the deep core muscles to stabilize the trunk and protect the back. This kind of core training makes Pilates an excellent technique for whole-body fitness, as well as a foundation for cross training with other kinds of sports and exercise.
  4. Live more consciously. Pilates forces you to pay attention. You focus on your breath while working through each movement and concentrate on proper form. After a Pilates session, you’ll feel refreshed and relaxed.
  5. Have better sex. Pilates strengthens the core and the pelvic floor, and men who practice it have greater control of this region of the body–need we say more?
