Pilates For Beginners

Pilates is a style of full body workout which balances strength, mobility, and flexibility. It can be modified to suit any ability level no matter your age, size, gender, and fitness levels! Because it’s a low impact activity, it can provide numerous benefits to everyone. Some of these benefits include better posture, strengthened core, improved flexibility and balance, and even reduced back pain.

Workouts are usually on mats or on special equipment like the Reformer, Tower, and Stability Chair. Most exercises can be done with just yourselves, but if you have access to equipment, try it out! It’ll add an extra level of difficulty and burn those calories.

Simple examples of pilates exercises include:

  • Hundreds – make sure you have a flat back, curl the head and shoulders up, bend your knees and lift your feet slightly off the floor, pump your arms up and down with small motionsThe Pilates Hundred: Perfect This Common Warm-Up and Conditioning Exercise
