Pilates is a popular workout for getting toned and achieving personal growth – both mentally and physically. It utilizes resistance training, controlled exercises and concentrated breathing & movement to link the body and mind. Joseph Pilates was the original creator who developed 500 specific exercises to grow the body-mind connection that now make up pilates.
In Pilates, equipment is utilized to maximize the workout, such as through resistance bands, springs, mats and, of course, the reformer. It may look intimidating at first but, don’t worry, within a few classes students are rocking the equipment like a model does a runway.
