Strength Training and Pilates? Why?
Strength training has taken on a new look, similar to other areas in the fitness industry. Strength training has started steering away from the earlier model of muscle isolation training.
Today, trainers are focusing on movement-based functional training that affects our daily lives. Advances in science have resulted in these new training models that focus on the whole person—body, mind, and spirit. However, one man ahead of his time already possessed the secret to holistic training. Joseph Pilates created a mind-body movement system over 80 years ago to restore people to health and vitality. According to Pilates, “Movement heals the body.”
Practicing Pilates will enable you to enjoy freedom of movement and reduce or eliminate pain. You will leave each session feeling refreshed and energized. It’s fun, safe and easy to learn. You do not have to be in great shape to start the program. Just begin.
