Athletes, dancers, and people in physiotherapy and medical rehabilitation often choose Pilates for functional mobility and cross-training. Pilates exercises are foundational for fitness and mobility, accessible to all levels. The methodology helps build a base level of fitness, and at Trainor Movement Co., our instructors work to help you achieve optimal mobility.
Pilates for every body
While Pilates is known for being a low-impact exercise methodology, it still presents challenges. In studio sessions, your teacher will ask you to complete a screening form to learn about any injuries or health issues. This information helps instructors adjust exercises if necessary. It’s crucial to make informed decisions before starting Pilates, considering its suitability for your needs. Like any exercise, there’s a risk of overdoing it. To avoid injury, follow correct techniques and pace yourself, especially as a beginner.
Adhering to proper form and gradually increasing intensity can make your Pilates experience safer and more effective.
Benefits for your body
• Pilates promotes lean muscle development, enhancing body strength, flexibility, and supporting bones
and joints to reduce fracture risk.
• The exercises improve posture and balance, allowing you to move through your day with energy.
• The training increases bone strength and density, making Pilates beneficial for women in menopause
or perimenopause experiencing bone density loss due to lower estrogen levels.
