Get our bodies ready for the summer

June 1st, 2011

The benefits of the Pilates method are obvious straight away and it has been recommended by specialists, physiotherapists and personal trainers and coaches for years.

The fact that its well-known benefits are sometimes distorted by advertising campaigns to sell the Pilates Method as just another product shouldn’t be forgotten. These campaigns have sold it as being the answer to getting rid of cellulite, to get a slim, sculpted figure. It’s true that the Pilates method does tend to shape your body and sculpt your figure but not miraculously or mysteriously, the changes occur naturally, and they depend on the physical characteristics of the individual in question. That is why you have to be aware of the main objective of this physical fitness system whose results depend on muscle oxygenation and the enhanced suppleness of the body.

Among other things on a physical level, the Pilates method helps to:

  • Firm up your body by improving your general physical condition
  • Get healthier joints by increasing your body’s mobility and flexibility
  • Gain physical strength and stamina which in turn prevents injury
  • Enhance the mind’s control over the body which consequently builds up self-confidence and self-esteem
  • Correct and change bad postures that can cause different types of ailments and it improves the body’s equilibrium in general

In addition to the physical results, the Pilates method is also beneficial mentally and spiritually when it is carried out regularly as it relaxes and strengthens the body and mind and focuses especially on the attitudes and values of the individual in question. Above all the Pilates method is a discipline and as such, it requires commitment and consistency from everyone who does it.
