Pilates, which was developed in the 1920's by Joseph Pilates is a form of exercise based on improving muscular strength and flexibility without building bulk. Through a series of precise, controlled movements and powerful breathing techniques you will not only experience a physical change but will also experience a mind-body awareness leading you to greater knowledge of muscular control and function. Pilates is beneficial to all ages and fitness levels. It is an especially safe form of conditioning for pregnant women, older adults and is used by physical therapists for injury prevention and rehabilitation. The goal of Pilates is to create efficient body movements which will improve power and endurance in many activities such as cycling, running, swimming and weight training. Used by many professional athletes, Pilates can give any athlete the winning edge.
