What is Pilates?
Pilates (pronounced puh-LAH-teez) is an exercise system focused on creating flexibility, alignment, and strength for the entire body. Developed in the 1920's by legendary trainer, Joseph Pilates, it is a series of controlled movements to strengthen and tone your body while engaging your mind. The "POWERHOUSE" (abdomen, lower back, and glutes) is supported and strengthened, enabling the rest of the body to move freely and correctly. Through Pilates the entire body becomes stronger and more flexible producing a properly sculpted physique. Improved muscle development increases metabolism thus enhancing weight loss.
The Pilates method utilizes specifically designed apparatus and should always be taught by highly trained, certified instructors.
Today, top professional athletes incorporate Pilates training for body conditioning and injury prevention. So, whether you're a top athlete or just want to enjoy a healthier, more active lifestyle, Pilates of Amelia can help you look great and stay on top of your game.
