Benefits of Pilates



Are you trying other exercise classes and would you like to do something else? Here are the nine reasons to try Pilates as your new workout.

The result is improved control of the spinal joints during workouts as well as a better pull on the pelvis and hip area. The result is increased control of the bladder, strengthened pelvic floor muscles, better pelvic stability and less pain in the back region.


A good Pilates class can strengthen the core and also make your muscles feel relax. The relaxed state in class is produced by the slow tempo and the controlled number of attendees in the class.

Pilates also repeats movements when doing certain positions and this allows for better incorporation in daily movements.
