Pilates is well-known to promote strength, flexibility and the courage to fire winks and gun fingers at cute strangers. Allow the qualified and highly trained experts at Pilates by Design to turn your body from squishy Oros man to a lean and mean sculpted machine and fire away.
While strengthening your core may not seem like a necessity, it is these muscles that help control movement, transfer energy, shift body weight and move in any direction. Without core muscles, walking would be a distant dream as humankind rolled around on motorised vehicles. A strong core also distributes the stresses of weight-bearing and protects the back, all the while giving you great posture. Unlike conventional workouts which tend to work the same muscles over and over again, Pilates conditions the entire body, resulting in evenly balanced musculature with no muscle group being over trained or undertrained.
While a skew spine, tense shoulders and bad breathing may only be noticeable at a spine, shoulders and breath convention, these things can deteriorate rapidly resulting in numerous Hunchback of Notre-dame jokes and sounding like a man over the phone. Stay on top of the situation and allow the age-old technique of Pilates to increase your energy and promote weight-loss, while reducing stress, gaining muscle elasticity and strengthening your core. Whether you’re a nervous newbie or a Pilates veteran, Groupies can enjoy one-hour private sessions tailored to suit any fitness level.
