Five Proven Ways to Lose Weight Fast

Pilates is made of carefully performed and organized movements carried out on a mattress, using specially designed equipment.

This kind of workout is created for challenging your strength, flexibility and coordination, Pilates is not quite a fitness routine, although it makes your body perfectly. If you want to start Pilates classes you must know that there are 6 key principles that you must take into consideration: Concentration, Control, Center, Alignment, Breathing and Flowing movement.

There are two types of Pilates exercises: Fitness Pilates and Rehabilitation Pilates

Fitness Pilates works your muscles and improves your posture. It is taught to groups in a class, or at a local gym by experienced instructor. Rehabilitation Pilates, on the other hand, approaches the student as a ‘whole’ with an effort to understand any muscular or movement issues Rehabilitation Pilates is taught on an individual basis and is often focused on correcting and preventing back pain.

To take the best out of Pilate’s exercises, do your training on a soft mattress and be relaxed and calm.

3 Benefits of Pilates:

1. Develop a strong core – flat abdominals and a strong back

Control of the core is achieved by integrating the trunk, pelvis and shoulder girdle.

2. Build strength without “bulking up” – gain long, lean muscles and flexibility

Conventional workouts tend to build short, bulky muscles – the type most prone to injury but Pilates elongates and strengthens, improving muscle elasticity and joint mobility. A body with balanced strength and flexibility is less likely to be injured.

3. Be confident and safe

Many of the exercises are performed in reclining or sitting positions, and most are low impact and partially weight bearing. Pilates is so safe, it is used in physical therapy facilities to rehabilitate injuries.
