5 reasons why everyone should try Pilates

Sure you've heard the term Pilates somewhere before, but what exactly is Pilates and how can it help ? How come that this training method has found so many followers in recent years ?

The answers are quite simple to understand:

  • Pilates activates the so called “Power House”

After several hours of Pilates, the muscles in the center of your body are activated, particularly the deep abdominal and back muscles. Specially designed exercises will form and tone your body  stonger and more resistant to cope with stresses of everyday life, significantly reducing the risk of injury, protecting the spine and improving the quality of life through more stability and posture in the centre of your body.

  • Pilates is suitable for every age group and every fitness level

Pilates exercises are extremely easy on the joints and are performed with slow, flowing movements. The focus of the exercises is always on the same deep-set muscles in the center of your body, whether you are a sports freak or a couch potatoe. As a side effect, your tendons and ligaments become softer as many Pilates movements have the stretching part already built in, making your joints smoother and you feel lighter and more flexible.

  • Pilates can be performed at any time at almost any location

Pilates exercises are extremely easy on the joints and are performed with slow, flowing movements. The focus of the exercises is always on the same deep-set muscles in the center of your body, whether you are a sports freak or a fitness muffle.

  • Pilates protects your back from injuries
Maybe you’ve heard the saying, “Sitting is the new smoking” before. Well, if you look at the statistics, back pain is the second most common cause of sick leave in our society. Too long sitting in uncomfortable postures, too many appointments and time pressure lead to these results. Many already understood that warm baths, massages and heating pads are not sufficient to get your back pain under control, the solution lies mostly in regular movement. Pilates training prevents poor posture, strengthens the body centre and improves the flexibility of your muscles and tendons. By using helpful Pilates equipment such as a Resistance Bands, a Fitness Ball or a Pilates Circle, this way the exercises can be done even easier or better supported, especially for beginners.
  • Pilates strengthens your physical posture, but also your mental attitude

So how can i grasp that my mental attitude has to do with Pilates training? Well, those who work physically all day can put their feet up in the evening. But those who remain physically inactive not only live with a health risk, they also become more and more sluggish. However, after every movement, especially when we have really exhausted ourselves, we are maybe physically tired, but mentally totally refreshed after showering at the latest. We are feel full of energy, even if we were previously depressed, angry or powerless.
Through movement, man can always draw new strength – our entire well-being depends on it. After every Pilates training you will recognize this state of general well-being quite quickly, both physically and mentally.
