Hollywood stars, dancers, and athletes have used this system for decades, but the secret is to flat abs and toned thighs is available to you NOW!!! Pilates is total body conditioningNamed after German-born Joseph H. Pilates it was created 100 years ago and it emphasizes body alignment and breathing helping you both strengthen and lengthen. Joe called it "Contrology"- it's all about controlled moves focused on your core- the abs, lower back, hips and butt.
Joe created over 500 exercises, where both the major muscles AND the supportive muscles work evenly and simultaneously. You strengthen AND stretch, which restores muscular balance and improves posture. The mind guides the body through the series of meticulously designed movements. Pilates is built around 6 principals: control, precision, concentration, precision, breath and flow.
Both floor or "mat" & machine or "apparatus" exercises are used. The Mat-Work uses body-weight and can be performed almost anywhere, anytime. All of the resistance in the Pilates apparatus comes from springs. The primary machine is the Reformer. It is bed- like and 100s exercises can be performed it. Other equipment, all spring-loaded, includes the Cadillac, Wunda Chair, Electric Chair, Barrel and Spine Corrector.
