Pilates Training

 

Pilates founded by Joseph Pilates in the early 20th century is a method of exercise and physical movement designed to stretch, strengthen and balance the body. With systematic practice of specific exercises coupled with focused breathing patterns, Pilates has proven itself invaluable not only as a fitness endeavor itself, but also as an important adjunct to professional sports training and physical rehabilitation of all kinds.

 

Practiced faithfully, Pilates yields numerous benefits. Increased lung capacity and circulation through deep healthy breathing is a primary focus. Strength and flexibility, particularly of the abdomen and back muscles, and coordination, both muscular and mental, are key components in an effective Pilates program. Posture, Balance and Core Strength are all increased. Bone density and joint health improve. Many experience positive body awareness for the first time. The balance and control of the body Pilates teaches often spills over into other areas of one’s life.

 

Personal Training

 

Defining You Pilates & Fitness provides Personal Training with an emphasis on functional and core strength. Functional Training is a classification of exercise which involves training the body for the activities performed in daily life.

 

The benefits of Functional Training lead to better muscular balance and joint stability, possibly impacting the number of injuries sustained and individual’s performance in a  sport or everyday life. The benefits may arise from the use of training that emphasizes the body’s natural ability to move in three anatomical planes of motion.
