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.
It is no suprise that the popularity of Pilates is gaining so quickly. The Pilates experience is a pleasant surprise for people who don’t like the boot camp grunt and grind approach to exercise. And for those who do like boot camp workouts or working out in a gym, they all say how much stronger their body’s feel after learning the Pilates technique.
Pilates classes are a slower pace than many other workouts – more like yoga. You go through each exercise in a slow methodical way, feeling your body’s alignment and using the correct muscle groups for each exercise. When it comes to core strength, your core has 3 layers of muscles and it takes time and correct training to learn how to use all three layers. After you find out how to tap into your inner core, you can take that new found strength and use it in all forms of fitness. You will have more endurance, experience fewer injuries, and have better coordination so you can push other fitness exercises to higher levels. I hear my students commenting weekly about all the wonderful benefits they have experienced after studying Pilates.
The key is correct training. A beginners Pilates class needs to have enough theory with a complete understanding of what your body needs to do and when to do it. Newcomers need to understand that a class has to stop from time to time so an exercise can be broken down and explained. So often I get comments like, “So that’s how I do it! I never understood before.”
Summer is just around the corner. Start your Pilates training now and enjoy your summer more. You will look better and feel better. As Joseph Pilates said,” After 10 Pilates classes you will feel a difference. After 20 Pilates classes you will see a difference. And after 30 Pilates classes you will have a whole new body.”
