Pilates is one of the most popular and effective system of controlled exercises that engage the mind and condition the total body. It is a balanced blend of strength and flexibility training that improves posture and reduces stress.
Pilates aims to strengthen the body in an even way, with particular emphasis on core strength to improve general fitness and wellbeing. Pilates exercises are done on a mat or using special equipment, such as the Reformer, the Cadillac and Wunda Chair. With its system of pulleys and springs, handles and straps, the apparatus can provide either resistance or support, depending on your needs.
Pilates has something to offer people of all ages and levels of ability and fitness, from beginners to elite athletes. The apparatus can be used to provide support for beginners and people with certain medical conditions, as well as resistance for people looking to challenge their body. Before starting any exercise programme, it’s advisable to seek advice from your GP or a health professional if you have any health concerns, such as a health condition or an injury.
Whether it’s your goal to make Pilates a new career or simply a part-time job to bring in additional revenue, take the time to research the reputable training organizations, do your homework and find the right fit for you. Ask lots of questions.
