As most of us know by now Pilates is a very popular exercise method and more and more people are incorporating it in their workout routine or thinking of incorporating it.
This comes as no surprise as Pilates gives immediate results!
Here's a few results that you'll feel and see after just one session:
1) Immediate flatter stomach:
The Pilates Method focuses on very specific muscles in the body and you can't do any one of these exercises without using your abdominals. This creates a nice little burning sensation - the hum as I like to call it - in your abs which will stay with you throughout your day. The result is that you'll be thinking of your abs more and be zipping them up! INSTANT FLAT ABS!
2) Better Posture in just one class:
Pilates' constant focus, coupled with your Instructor's reminder to lengthen from head to toe will make you feel taller and more aware of your body after just one session. You will leave class walking taller and carrying yourself with grace!
3) Instant Healthier Day:
Doing Pilates (and any exercise for that matter) sets you up for a healthier daily routine. You will feel the benefits of your Pilates workout throughout the day and the next, as a result this will set you up to make healthier choices.
4) Relaxed in a Jiffy:
Just like Yoga, Pilates has a very precise breathing method ( breathing in through the nose and out through pursed lips) This breath not only promotes your abdominal muscles to work harder but also results in a more relaxed you! Pilates Breath also avoids unnecessary neck strain. Your instructor will constantly cue breath in class which will result in a more relaxed and focused "you."
These are the IMMEDIATE results form Pilates. Other benefits which may take a little longer to experience, see and feel, are endless. The Pilates Method tones the entire body, helps with weight loss, relieves back pain, increases flexibility, aligns the body, prevents injury - and these are just a few!
