Have You Ever Tried Reformer Pilates Before?
Developed by Joseph Pilates in the early 20th century, this discipline was influenced by yoga, gymnastics, watching animals in nature, and rehabilitation of injuries.
These are what make Pilates unique.
Not to mention the Reformer – a wonderful machine that gives even a wider range of exercises. The Reformer can be used in different ways depending on your needs, whether to add challenge to your workout, reduce the load of gravity, or help rehabilitate your injury.
Ohh, that Ahhhbss!
Admit it. You say that every time you see a toned abs. (Or at least your mind does)
When it comes to sculpting bodies, especially the tummy, Pilates is an effective way to do it. After all, it is a great core workout, one that really targets not just the superficial muscles in the abdomen, but also the deep core muscles.
The Wonder in the Reformer
If you’re already familiar with yoga or mat Pilates, Reformer Pilates offers much more variety in terms of exercises and the body parts you’re targeting. It lets you work on specific muscles and fix your movement patterns and biomechanics. If you’re injured, it helps with the recovery of your body and stops the patterns that cause injury. With countless exercises the Reformer offers, it has exercises designed for almost every injury, mechanical dysfunction, and problematic areas of your body.
Contrary to its torture-y appearance, the Reformer gives a lot of support when you exercise. This lets you use your stabilizer muscles and deep core more effectively, so no need to ‘cheat’ your way through exercises. With the Reformer, you get the most of your workout!
Fitness for Everyone
Pilates is a system of movements designed to develop the body’s powerhouse – the core. Almost every movement stems out from the core. If you have stable abdominal and back muscles, it’ll be easier for you to fully move your arms and legs.
Going back to the history, Pilates helped dancers in New York to achieve fine dancing form. It’s not a surprise if there are a lot of dancers who do Pilates.
Baby boomers turned to Pilates to relieve their aches and pains they get from years of wear and tear. Osteoarthritis, postural aches, low back pain, whatever musculoskeletal problems, people who want to reverse the wicked effects of aging can benefit from Pilates!
Speaking of baby boomers (born in the years 1946-1964), did you know that even babies can participate in Reformer Pilates too? (Yes, those little bundles of joy!)
And speaking of babies, Reformer Pilates is a safe and effective way for females to continue their fitness regimen throughout pregnancy. It is also a great way to prepare your body for childbirth!
