Pilates what is it?
Pilates is a dynamic conditioning form of exercise, which specifically targets our deep, core muscles. Core muscles are also referred to as your core stability. Pilates and core stability go hand in hand. Core stability muscles include deep abdominal, back and pelvic floor muscles. Pilates is named after its inventor, the late Joseph Pilates. In his youth, he overcame physical illness by studying exercise rehabilitation and he developed his own form of exercise, which we now recognise as Pilates.
Unlike some forms of exercise, Pilates does not over-develop some parts of the body and neglect others. While Pilates training focuses on core strength it trains the body as an integrated whole. Pilates workouts promote strength and balanced muscle development as well as flexibility and increased range of motion for the joints.
