While cardio can improve the condition of your lungs, over time your body adapts to the exercise, which is why it’s important to adapt your exercise routine and to incorporate some strength training exercises, such as Pilates, into it. Pilates offers many benefits that other forms of exercise lack. For example, Pilates can help you to develop long and lean muscle tissue, which will in turn make your body more efficient in its use of calories.
At its inception, Pilates was designed to be a form of exercise that utilized mind, spirit and body, thus providing those who practiced it regularly with a body that could perform rigorous tasks with ease. Pilates has been shown to increase flexibility, muscle strength and tone, tighten the core—abs, hips, lower back and buttocks, create balanced muscular structure and greater muscular control. Since good form is essential to achieving these outcomes, when you decide to begin a Pilates routine, a Pilates consultation can serve to make your desires attainable. A Pilates consultation gives you the opportunity to have a one-on-one session where we discuss your current abilities, your goals and how to get you from where you are to where you want to be. We will help you to learn which exercises to begin with and how to improve your ability so that you can safely perform the exercises. During your Pilates consultation, we can also help you correct any issues with form since form is so important to achieving excellent results.
At the Fitness By Design, we offer Pilates consultation solutions so that you can get the most effective benefits for your body from your Pilates workout. When you want to strengthen your body and achieve greater muscle strength, greater mind-body awareness, less stress, or greater health in general, come in and see us.
