Pilates is a form of exercise that can be tailored to suit absolutely anyone, and is enjoyable from the start of a session to its completion, allowing you to exercise and improve your health without great effort. After all, the best way to lose weight or gain fitness is to infuse fun into your exercise routine, and to bring yourself together with others who enjoy the chance to exercise and bond as a group. You will quickly make friends within the Pilates community, and may perhaps find that you are particularly fond of this exercise routine over others to the point where you prefer this method first and foremost.
Mobility and flexibility work together hand-in-hand to help you enjoy a high quality life, and Pilates is one option designed to not only help you lose weight and gain fitness, but to improve flexibility over time. Through careful repetition of specially designed routines and stretches, your body will slowly begin to gain flexibility until you are able to easily bend over, stretch up high, or anything in between to accommodate your daily needs. All of this will become simpler and less painful over time, especially if you suffer from a condition, injury, or another form of restriction to your mobility which may benefit from increased flexibility over time.
Many people believe that working out using free weights and machines is the only way to truly gain strength in your muscles, but the truth is that Pilates in Rockingham will improve the strength and tone of your muscles over time. This is particularly true of your abdominal muscles, hips, buttocks, and lower back, otherwise known as the “core” muscles of the body, which are used most often and with the highest level of versatility. If you start this routine to lose weight or to improve your overall health and strength, you will begin to feel the results after just one session, and actually see the results in only a few weeks of regular work.
It is not enough that you increase the strength of your body over time, but that you also increase that strength in a way that is balanced to both sides of the body. Often, an exercise will focus on only one aspect of the body, such as the arms and shoulders, leaving the rest of the body to fall behind in regards to strength and fitness. It is a running joke among those who regularly exercise that “leg day” should not be skipped, else the calves and thighs appear comically smaller than a person’s upper body. This is actually a real phenomenon which is easily avoided by choosing a full-body workout over focused exercises, which only improve the strength of one body part.
