Pilates

Pilates is an exercise technique which has been in existence since the 1930’s. It was developed by Joseph Pilates who was a boxer in Germany. He designed equipment with springs to assist or resist body movements. The equipment work was combined with mat (floor) work to enhance body conditioning. Pilates brought his work to New York where ballet dancers became supportive and engaged in his work. Pilates’ method was widely accepted due to its application in:


Strength 
Balance 
Flexibility 
Coordination

The Pilates technique has evolved over the years and the equipment has become widely used in the rehabilitation of injuries as well as in fitness settings. Pilates has been shown to improve 


Posture
Breath Control 
Trunk and Core Control
Back and Neck Pain

Pilates offers a different environment for training, including changing the impact of  gravity. Running and jumping can be pain free as a result of the changes. Elite athletes can benefit from this training as much as geriatric patients and those recovering from surgery. The equipment is unique in its supportive design and it lends itself to such diverse training for every Body.
