Another Pilates season

It’s time to start another semester of Pilates training. with Coyne Pilates. Pilates is a stretch & strength system of exercise that concentrates on spinal flexibility and core muscle strength. It’s named after its inventor, Joseph Pilates, who went from being a sickly child with rickets to the model for anatomical illustrations because of his perfect body.

Pilates has become a popular form of exercise and the benefits are well known, so well known that I’m “borrowing” them from the Absolute Control Pilates site.

Benefits of Pilates:

  • Develops longer, leaner muscles (less bulk, more freedom of movement)
  • Improves postural problems
  • Increases core strength/stability and peripheral mobility
  • Helps prevent injury
  • Enhances functional fitness, ease of movement
  • Balances strength & flexibility
  • Heightens body awareness
  • Non-impact – easy on joints
  • Can be customized for everyone from rehab patients to elite athletes
  • Complements other methods of exercise
  • Improves performance in sports (golf, skating, dance, etc)
  • Improves balance, coordination & circulation
