Pilates creates a strong core by retraining the body to work efficiently with minimal effort and no tension. Both stamina and coordination are improved. The body comes in to perfect balance and alignment. As a result, the immune system is stimulated and the level of general health very often rises because the internal organs can now sit and function correctly.
Developing an athlete’s core – the deep abdominal muscles along with the muscles closest to the spine – makes athletes more agile, helps prevent injury and increases sports performance. From weekend warriors to elite professionals, athletes looking for a competitive edge are discovering that Pilates helps.
