Besides helping with simple core strength and flexibility, regular Pilates can ease back pain, improve bone density and boost heart rate. It will increase your flexibility, improve your posture and your cardiovascular conditioning. This will all help you live a healthier life and help prevent injuries.
You can burn up to 500 calories in one session depending on the intensity of your workout while strengthening your back and the abdominal muscles.
As Pilates moves focus on deeper intrinsic core muscles, they are much more effective than regular crunches in eliminating body fat around the midsection.
Assuming you also follow my advice on cleaning up your diet : )
Improving your body’s flexibility will help give you a calm and open mind that is more flexible towards life and sources of everyday stress.
Regularly practicing Pilates will boost your mood during the day and help you sleep better at night. Improved breathing through proper techniques combined with a healthier diet can change your life like you would have never guessed.
