Pilates can improve your overall physical fitness and well-being. If you’re not familiar with the term, you may be wondering, what is Pilates? It’s an exercise method developed by Joseph Pilates in the 1920s. You perform a series of exercises on a mat or on a machine called a reformer.
These whole-body exercises do several things all at once. They:
- Work the muscles
- Improve endurance
- Improve balance
- Improve posture
- Increase flexibility
Q: Is Pilates good for weight loss?
A: While Pilates therapy can be a part of a physical therapy plan, a Pilates workout on the reformer can be a part of a well-rounded physical fitness and weight loss plan. If it’s an exercise you enjoy, keep with it, and add cardio exercise and healthy eating to the mix for the best results.
Q: Is Pilates considered strength training?
A: Yes. Because Pilates uses resistance training using your body weight and equipment, it helps you build muscle strength. It also helps you improve your stability and endurance.
Strength training focuses on building muscle, muscle strength, and muscle tone. Examples of strength training exercises include:
- Weight lifting – with machines or free weights
- Working with resistance bands
Aerobic exercise focuses on getting your heart rate up. It provides cardiovascular conditioning that improves heart health, improves lung function, and can help you lose weight. Examples of cardiovascular exercise include:
- Jumping rope
- Step aerobics
- Using an elliptical machine
Which aerobic exercises we start you out on will depend on your current level of conditioning and physical abilities.
When most people think of physical fitness, they focus on muscular strength and aerobic exercise. But achieving and maintaining good balance is another facet of physical fitness. Balance exercises improve your core strength, boost your stability, and yes, improve your balance. For athletes, balance training can make you more powerful. For seniors, it can help prevent falls.
Examples of balance exercises include:
- Single leg stance
- Lateral leg lifts
- Heel to Toe walking
- Standing up from a chair without using your hands
It’s important to stay flexible at any age or stage of life. Being flexible makes moving around doing your daily activities easier. It also improves your athletic performance.
The majority of flexibility exercises involve stretching, and can include:
- Forward lunges
- Side lunges
- Standing quat stretch
- Seat side straddle
- Knees to chest
- Butterfly stretch
- Standing calf stretch
- Standing side stretch
- Shoulder stretch
- Arm stretches
- Cat/cow stretch
By practicing all four types of exercises, you’re on your way to physical fitness. We’ll help you ensure you have the right form and technique to avoid injury and get the most from your program.
