3 Great Reasons to Do Pilates
The exercise for everyone

Pilates is a gentle form of exercise that's open to anyone who wants to keep themselves healthy. There's no age limit or fitness requirement for doing Pilates.

If it's been a while since you've done any kind of exercise, don't worry. Right now, tonight or tomorrow morning, you can start Pilates – and in the comfort of your own home if you want. All you really need are some comfy clothing and accessories such as a gym ball, elastic band, and mat.

Time to tone

Just because it's gentle, doesn't mean it's ineffective.

Pilates uses all of your muscle groups (abdominals, back muscles, glutes) and it won’t be long before you notice them becoming more toned. In a nutshell, Pilates involves performing movements fluidly, slowly and with perfect control, as well as working on your breathing. This will help you build up your core muscles and lose a few inches too.

Relieve your back

If you sometimes suffer from back pain, Pilates can be a handy ally.

Pilates involves performing broad movements with a perfectly aligned spine. It's a way of training your body by working the muscles that support you and fighting your number one enemy: back pain. In time, you'll learn to naturally straighten your back and hold yourself more upright.
