Pilates Equals Strength plus flexibility
‘Physical fitness can neither be achieved by wishful thinking nor outright purchase.’ Joseph Pilates
To many, the method of body conditioning known as Pilates is a new concept. It was, however, developed over 90 years ago by innovator Joseph Н. Pilates to strengthen, tone, provide flexibility and bring balance to the body. The Pilates Method focuses on training the mind and body to work together in order to achieve an overall fitness, developing a healthy body, as well as, attitude. Pilates was a genius; he developed a system that was ahead of its time.
The ultimate goal is for the muscles to be toned, to react or act very fast; a smooth transition from relaxation to contraction. This is where flexibility comes into play, otherwise the muscles and ligaments can tear. You have to listen to your body and you have to know if your body is ready to meet a challenge, maybe you need rest.
Stress, emotional difficulties, repetitive movements and a lack of respect for the body stand ready to age us. Вy building our muscles, we provide a healthy buffer zone, a support for daily life, which can take the pressure off. It is good for your blood circulation; it brings nutrition to the cells and helps the body get rid of waste.
