Toning & Weight Loss
Pilates is perfect for toning and reshaping the entire body. It works on creating long, lean muscles, toning all of those hard to target areas such as the abdominals, inner thighs, buttocks, back of thighs, sides and backs of the arms. For toning, Pilates is best performed 3-5 times a week, this can include a combination of studio sessions, mat classes and home exercises.
Pilates exercises are performed throughout a wide range of movements and work on lengthening the muscles at the same time as strengthening them. To increase flexibility, stretching exercises need to be performed daily.
Pilates focuses on strengthening the weakened postural muscles and stretching the tight muscles that pull the body into these poor postures. Studio sessions are the best way to improve posture as our physiotherapists can develop a program to target your specific postural problems.
Injury Rehab & Prevention
Pilates is fantastic for injury rehabilitation and prevention as it works on core stability, posture, flexibility, and correcting muscle imbalances and weaknesses via specific strengthening.
Enhanced Athletic Performance
Pilates is the secret tool that many high level and recreational athletes use to enhance their performance, decrease the risk of injuries and provide much needed cross training. Each sport has specific strength and flexibility requirements. When you book in for an assessment, your physiotherapist will look at the things you need to work on to improve your performance and then proceed to design a program for you.
