BENEFITS OF PILATES
Pilates has been around for 100 years, but what's the big deal?
Here are some benefits of Pilates - a low-impact exercise that can benefit anyone!
1. Stronger core/ improved posture
Many Pilates exercises are core-focused, which helps improve posture as your core strength increases.
2. Increased flexibility
Pilates also helps to lengthen your major muscle groups for more flexibility!
3. Better balance & stability
Research shows that Pilates can improve your balance and overall stability, which can help prevent falls and injury.
4. Muscular endurance
Not only does Pilates help to improve muscular endurance in your core, but you'll see results in your upper body too!
5. Better lung capacity
Pilates is very breath-focused, which results in improved lung capacity and respiratory endurance.
