Any kind of exercise we do is great for our health!
But why choose Pilates?
Well, for starters, it’s a great all-round workout that can strengthen our body!
Pilates can help to maintain muscle tone. As we age, our body loses muscle strength, and weak muscles can increase our risk of falls and broken bones, especially in our senior years. Pilates can help to increase our muscle mass, it can help to strengthen the muscles around our joints, and it can also improve our posture.
Pilates is a low impact exercise, so there is less stress on our joints.
It helps to keep out joints flexible and strong.
To improve our balance, stability, and coordination, which can reduce the risk of falls and injuries when we’re older.
It helps to increase our bone density to help prevent osteoporosis.
And, it improves breathing and circulation!
Take caution: You should always speak with your doctor first and get a full medical check-up before taking up any form of exercise. Your doctor will advise you on your limits and abilities as well as what you should avoid, especially if you have existing health problems or are taking medication.
