"In 10 sessions you'll feel the difference, in 20 sessions you'll see the difference, and in 30 sessions you'll have a whole new body".
That’s what Joseph Pilates (1883-1976) said about the method he developed, which he originally called Contrology. And it’s true.
Pilates works, and it works swiftly.
Pilates trains and stretches all muscles. It improves one’s posture and helps prevent back pains, while reducing those that already exist. Abdominal muscles and the pelvic floor are trained, which is a positive for all of us and a supportive for women in the postnatal phase.
Pilates doesn’t only train the larger muscles that are normally used in everyday life, but also the smaller muscles that provide stability and support the spine. The aim is to develop sleek, flexible and strong but not bulky muscles, coupled with improved posture and agility. Active muscles increase fat burning in daily life and this way support weight loss and weight control.
Pilates is the perfect addition to every sport as it improves coordination, flexibility and balance, while providing a general sense of well-being and achievement.
