Mat Work and Equipment - Pilates exercises are done either on a mat on the floor or on exercise equipment developed by Joseph Pilates. The Pilates workout equipment generally utilizes pulleys and resistance from the participant's own body weight on the machine and graduated levels of springs. The reformer is probably the best-known piece of resistance equipment that you will encounter at a Pilates studio.
Effective, low-impact exercise - Pilates exercises can be used early in rehabilitation from injury as the exercises are low-impact and can target a very specific area of the body.
It’s suitable for any age or fitness level -Pilates exercises can be modified or advanced, so you can benefit from the exercises and increase your strength at any age or fitness level.
It can help reduce your risk of injury - The exercises in Pilates encourage you to isolate and activate muscles individually. This can help to correct imbalances in your body that arise from lifestyle habits by teaching your muscles to activate correctly during movement, reducing the risk of injury resulting from muscular imbalance.
It’s great cross-training for almost any sport - Doing Pilates in combination with other forms of exercise can help to build your resilience to injury. For example, dancers use Pilates as a form of cross-training to improve their mind-body connection and overall wellbeing. It may also be beneficial to those who run by promoting better range of motion at the hip joints, which may improve stride and running technique.
