The 5 Reasons Successful People in Austin are doing Pilates to Tone Up & Ease Pain

My name is Cheryl Dunn – a Pilates expert from Austin, Texas and in the article I would like to share with you the 5 reasons to do Pilates.

Pilates is so much more than what most think it is! And it is for everyone, from men, to women, the young and the old and to everything in between.

Less Back Pain

Most back pain results from faulty posture and a sedentary lifestyle. Pilates addresses the muscle imbalances that most typically contribute to back pain, namely weak abdominals and buttock muscles. Pilates also stretches out the tight and overworked back muscles. Proper alignment is the main factor that helps to alleviate back pain. If you do Pilates carefully, you’ll understand how to use your body in ways that protect your back from injury.

Pilates was initially developed as a rehabilitative tool by Joseph Pilates. He was a German gymnast, born in 1883, who dedicated his life to teaching his exercising techniques, believing that poor posture goes hand-in-hand with poor health. He believed that by having awareness of breath and of alignment of the spine, one can strengthen the deep torso and abdominal muscles, and recover from injury.

You Will Increase Your Strength

Every Pilates exercise focuses on using your deepest abdominals and spinal muscles to power movement in your limbs, literally moving from the core.

Whatever activity you do, you’ll find that Pilates exercises improve strength in meaningful ways and can help with the overall health of your spine. Doing Pilates can help prevent injuries, too!

Improved Flexibility

Any exercise regimen should increase your body’s overall strength, or else what’s the point? But Pilates strengthens the muscles in your body that you may actually notice on a day-to-day basis. Pilates is meant to improve your daily life: It can help you get up from bed, if that’s hard for you, or it can help you get stronger for playing sports.

Pilates exercises stretch the muscles and the joints while they strengthen the body. If you have found that your spine has lost some of its range of motion and flexibility, Pilates very quickly addresses this problem.

Everyone has physical limitations that depend on age, genetics and lifestyle. Pilates is not a magic pill, but if you do a regular Pilates exercise program, your body can reach its potential in the areas of flexibility and strength.

Your Tone Will Be A Lot Better

By focusing on corrective and oppositional movement patterning, students can expect to see significant changes in their shape within a few months. Now, different studios use this quote in different ways, but what Mr Joseph Pilates say about Pilates is that after 10 classes you will feel a difference. After 20 classes, you will see a difference, and after 30 classes, others will see a difference in you.

Celebrities and sports stars consistently credit Pilates as the reason for their toned muscles. Given that the stars often have to plan their days down to the last minute – what with all their photoshoots, interviews, meetings, etc. and Pilates fits easily into their day. And not only is it a efficient full-body workout, it has many additional benefits, too.

It builds longer, leaner muscles. It improves core strength, flexibility and balance, and corrects posture – making you stand taller and look slimmer!

We’re all for that.

Live More Consciously

Pilates forces you to pay attention—you’ve got to focus on your breath while working through each movement and concentrating on proper form.

Pilates will help you to tune into your body in order to activate the muscles. You need to listen to the instructions carefully in order to be safe, and you need to pay attention to the feedback you are getting from the equipment. You cannot think about your grocery list, tomorrow’s board meeting or what you are eating for dinner. After a Pilates session, you’ll feel refreshed and relaxed, which can even carry over into the next day.
