Developed from the techniques of Joseph Pilates in the 1920’s, Pilates concentrates on core conditioning by working through the body’s abdomen and spine to increase strength, endurance and flexibility. Unlike many types of resistance training, Pilates doesn’t build bulky muscles. Instead, it lengthens and strengthens muscles and focuses on developing a strong and long torso.
Professional dancers have used Pilates for decades to for strength and to recover from injuries. Top athletes use Pilates for strength, flexibility and injury prevention.
