What is Pilates?
Fitness Pilates is a group exercise class to enhance strength, posture, balance and stability. It considers the body as a human kinetic chain using the fundamental Pilates techniques and exercises. In the class you will work through exercises to music working to the level which is right for you. You do not need any experience of Pilates to come along as modifications and progressions will be demonstrated throughout the class, so you can put in as much as you want to. Pilates aims to offset musculoskeletal imbalances and builds strength throughout the body. By strengthen the body this helps to protect joints and improve mobility.
You will need a mat for the class and occasionally props may come in handy. Such as a strop, mini ball or small weights. However, these are not essential – mats, blocks and straps available to sue at Aspire Fitness and Wellness
