Originally named Contrology, Pilates is a method developed by Joseph Pilates in the early 20th Century. Pilates is a body conditioning form of exercise which will improve the way you utilise your body day to day. It aims to strengthen the body with particular emphasis on core strength to improve general fitness and wellbeing and to develop longer, leaner muscles. Regular pilates practise will help to improve posture, muscle tone, balance and joint mobility, as well as relieve stress and tension.
Pilates is classed as a muscle-strengthening activity, which alongside cardio workouts can help you maintain a healthy weight. There are many case studies to show pilates can provide effective pain relief to people with non-specific lower back pain.
Pilates isn’t specific to any body type and it has something to offer people of all ages and levels of ability and fitness, from beginners to elite athletes. With the proper instruction and ongoing dedication, anyone can reap the benefits of Pilates.
