What is Pilates?

Pilates is simply……..

Strength and Flexibility with CONTROL

“Pilates” is the creators name, Joe H. Pilates, he named his method “Contrology” meaning the “science of Control”

Joe Pilates goal was to create a Method for health and fitness, an overall health system and not just an exercise, one should note that this was before physiotherapy and big gyms were around.

Pilates classes can be slow paced and as you get stronger and gain experience they can be extremely tough and fast paced. The benefits of Pilates can be appreciated by all. Whatever you do, sit at a desk all day, play golf, attend the gym, rugby, pre/post surgery…..Pilates is suitable for you.

Pilates is much more than just an exercise regime.  It teaches you how to move and where to move your body from, for example, have you ever done tummy crunches and suffered neck pain, with no or little improvement to your abs? Or are you a golfer who suffers from low back pain?  In Pilates an experienced trainer will teach you how to move your body correctly.  Once you move correctly you get those great abs and those workout results that you desire.  You can also expect to reduce a lot of pain by now moving your body correctly – a double benefit.  It is for the latter reason why Pilates continues to be endorsed by physiotherapists, physical therapists, osteopaths, surgeons and GPs.
