The Pilates method is now widespread, popular and has finally established itself as a recognized fitness system. The founder of the method Joseph Pilates argued that the main goal of the method is complete control of the body. For him, if at the age of 30 a person is stiff and untrained, he is considered “old”, while if at the age of 60 he is flexible and strong, he is considered “young”.
I will now tell you 3 good reasons to put Pilates in your life.
- You will have a flatter and stronger torso.
If you are not one of those people who are convinced of the benefits of exercise, I will tell you that with Pilates you will get the abs you dream of. Its system trains the torso with quality and in addition to an aesthetic result, you will also gain the strength to perform all the exercises with more ease. Pilates is based to the activation of the transversus abdominal which is more deep than the other abdominals (rectus abdominus, transverse abdominus ,obliquus internus and extremus abdominis muscle) and helps in the increase of the intra-abdominal pressure.
- You will improve your mobility and flexibility.
Everyday life destroys your body with the demands it has. You will have noticed that you squat more and that your movements seem hard and stiff. Pilates will give you the harmony that your body has by its nature constituting the antidote to inactivity. Your muscles will become more flexible and your musculoskeletal system more resistant to injury. Your spine will be aligned through the exercises that stretch the muscles and your performance in the requirements of everyday life will be significantly improved.
- You will be relieved of back and neck pain.
Whether you are an athlete or a sedentary, you certainly often experience muscle aches from exercise or immobility. With the constant flow of exercises and the harmony of movements that a Pilates program has, the muscles will stretch and you will stop aching after hours in front of the computer, after standing or after an intense workout. You will feel the difference at the end of a Pilates session, when your body will be aligned and free from muscle aches.
