The studio has an interesting collection of all ages and genders, with the oldest into their 80’s. All are positive thinking individuals who come ready to learn, progress, and in many cases heal. They bring their challenges with optimism and continue to challenge my years of expertise.
Pilates will strengthen your feet with specific exercises. Your feet are your foundation.
The human foot has 42 muscles, 26 bones, 33 joints, and at least 50 ligaments and tendons made of strong fibrous tissues to keep all the moving parts together … plus 250,000 sweat glands. The foot is an evolutionary marvel, capable of handling hundreds of tons of force — your weight in motion — every day.
Not enough attention is paid to strengthening feet. Your balance and endurance is affected when the muscles in your feet start to break down. Too often people are told to put orthotics in there shoes to help support their feet. Now the muscles you would normally use don’t have a job because the orthotics are there to do the work for you.
As we age, falling is a number 1 concern. Do people think of wearing orthotics in their slippers? Are their feet supported in the middle of the night when they get up sleepy and go to the bathroom?
At Synergy Pilates we pay special attention to feet throughout a class.
