What is Pilates?
Pilates is a
method of exercise designed and developed by German born, physical
therapist pioneer, Joseph H. Pilates. Utilizing specially designed
equipment, his innovative method educates, re-patterns, realigns,
and balances the body. It promotes maximum muscle strength, while
increasing flexibility, shapes the body, and makes it stronger and
more attractive. Pilates offers a superior standard of kinetic movements
that are physiologically sound. It develops the muscles of the body
from the inside out, improves suppleness of the limbs, functioning
of the vital organs and endocrine glands, clarifies the mind and
develops the will.
Pilates for Sports and Fitness
Pilates strengthens and balances the
body, promotes uniform development, improves breathing, realigns
the skeletal system, elongates muscles, improves joint mobility,
flexibility, and neuromuscular disorders. It is cardiovascular,
energizing and promotes health and fitness for all ages from nine
years to ninety.
Pilates is superior cross training for
all sports including Golf, Tennis, Equestrian, Basketball, Football,

Pilates improves motor skills, coordination, focus and concentration.
