Pilates may have a slight reputation as a form of exercise just for ladies however the benefits of increased fitness, flexibility and strength (without bulking out your muscles), better posture, stronger core, recovery from injury and improved body shape are for everyone, young or older, female or male.
Top level athletes, sports people from all disciplines and footballers have used Pilates exercises to improve their fitness, extend their careers and aid in injury prevention and rehabilitation whilst many celebrities recommend Pilates for general fitness and wellbeing. Plus millions of ‘ordinary’ people across the globe from all walks of life!
As mat based Pilates requires only a willingness to try and improve your body, some empty floor, a qualified instructor and a mat(!), people from all walks of life can benefit.
