Who Should Do Pilates?



Modern Pilates is an ideal form of rehabilitation. There are specialist classes for the older adult and for those with special needs such as MS, hip, knee replacements, back pain, osteoporosis and arthritis. Modern Pilates is also an ideal additional type of exercise for runners, advanced fitness enthusiasts and dancers who will benefit from increased core stability.

Pilates is suitable for post natal mums and will help increase function and repair of the pelvic floor along with suitable exercises for the mid-section. Tension and muscle imbalance can occur from both breast and bottle-feeding; as it is easy to adapt poor posture when new mothers are stressed and tired. Modern Pilates will not only exercise all the right muscles but will give mum that time out she deserves.

Pilates is perfect for athletes looking to enhance their performance and avoid the risk of injury. It is also suitable for first time exercisers. Its slow controlled approach means that it gives much longer-term results. Precise, controlled flowing movements mean that the muscle and ligament damage, sometimes associated with other fitness regimes, is avoided.
