TONE and STRENGTH
Since the very first lessons, you will notice how quickly Pilates tones, defines muscles and improves strength.
The exercises performed with precision, control, regularity and criterion, with the help of tools and springs, ensure that the beneficial effects are visible, fast and, above all, sustainable.
Each motory gesture has to start from the center, said in jargon Powerhouse (i.e. deep abdomen, buttocks and lower back), to finish on the extremities (i.e. legs, arms, neck, high back and feet, that are the basis of postural load).
This will evidently improve everyday’s activity or any other sport, removing the risk of injuries or accidents, and improving sports performance and not only.
The Pilates does not provide specific exercises for individual muscle districts, as it occurs in the traditional gym, instead provides exercises to integrate the whole body, involving all the muscles that make up the muscle chains in performing a given functional movement. This way the force is increased where it lacks the most, giving more symmetry to the side or the limb that is weaker, improving the disharmony of tone between the top and bottom of the body, which is typical for example, of some women who have hypotonic arms but hypertrophic legs.
