Pilates is often described as a body-conditioning method created by a man for men - one simply has to look at Joseph Pilates, the creator of this method, who used it to build and maintain a body, into his 80s, defining fitness, strength and vitality. Pilates is thought of as an exercise program meant primarily for women.
In a more contemporary context the popularity of Pilates with male athletes, sportspersons, performers (actors and dancers), and high-level achievers, on a professional world-wide platform; is testament to how Pilates is not an exercise program meant primarily for women.
A mind-body conditioning method, Pilates was developed about 100 years ago by German-born, Joseph Pilates. He developed an entire range of equipment based on spring-resistance to correct postural, muscular imbalances.
The benefit of working on the machines is the ability to make adjustments to increase challenge or modify as needed. An advantage not possible when working with mat exercises.
The focus is on functional fitness by strengthening the core and the muscles around the major joints of the body.
Pilates is used by professional and recreational athletes and sports persons to improve performance and reduce risk of injuries.
As Pilates improves cardiovascular efficiency and endurance, joint-stability, control, balance and body-awareness; it is a popular program for those in martial arts, yoga, dance, sports, and outdoor activities.
As a mind-body conditioning method, Pilates results in higher levels of energy, concentration and focus. This translates into efficiency at work, in studies, and in decreasing stress-levels; all very relevant in our daily lives.
Pilates is used world-wide for rehabilitation and for special populations concerns such as back, shoulder, knee.
It is an ideal program for pre- and post-natal women.
Pilates can be done as a stand-alone fitness program or integrated with other forms of exercise and movement; for daily living to a wide range of activities, such as golf, cricket, swimming, running, tennis, horse-riding, basketball, cycling, dance etc.
