What is Pilates and is it for me?

Joseph Pilates, the creator of the Pilates way of exercising says it best.

“Pilates develops the body uniformly, corrects wrong posture, restores physical vitality, invigorates the mind and elevates the spirit.”

Pilates strives to create core strength as well as long lean muscle mass so that the body can function optimally. Every individual at any level or age can gain a sleeker silhouette whilst attaining incredible strength and muscular endurance. Many of us suffer from postural related problems and pain. Pilates is a fantastic solution to the fast paced modern lifestyle we lead these days.

Nowadays we have a huge amount of clinical research as well as extensive training to help us formulate specific workout routines for individuals and their specific needs. Pilates will not only allow your body to be more symmetrical but will help to balance your body in an effective way and make you aware of how your body functions or as we like to call it “mindful movement”.

Our work outs work the entire body as one has to look at the body holistically. We strive to work the body against the affects of gravity so that one leaves feeling light, straight, worked out and ready to tackle life.

Weather you need cross training for your specific sport or you are just an average Joe with back pain Pilates has something to offer you. We specialise in specifically crafted work outs for individuals, we treat everybody as unique with their own set of goals, problems, needs and wants.
