Men

Pilates was developed by Joseph Pilates, a gymnast and a boxer. He was in incredible shape even into his eighties.  Much of the training done at Pilates Ten is based on the teaching of Joseph Pilates and Ron Fletcher, who studied directly with Joe.

Core strength, flexibility, agility and economy of motion; all fundamentals of Pilates training, are highly relevant to men’s fitness.  Men’s workouts, such as weight lifting, often emphasize a part be part approach.  Pilates works on moving from the core and developing deep muscles of the entire body.  This helps to stabilize and protect the back. Pilates is a great foundation for all types of sports and activities.

Dancers

Professional dancer have known the benefits of Pilates for decades.  Joseph Pilates moved to New York in 1926.  His studio was close to many dance companies, which lead dancers to the Pilates Method.  Many dancers used Pilates for rehabilitation, but it was more commonly used for the strength, grace, and flow that the method gave the dancer. 

Pilates builds strength without excess bulk making it perfect for the dancer body. A common problem for dancers is that certain parts of the body are over trained, while other parts, including the core, are improperly trained or under developed.  This can lead to poor alignment and poor technique.  Pilates teaches the dancer how to isolate and use certain muscle groups, and how to function properly.  Pilates training is the perfect cross training for a dancer-from student to professional.

Athletes

Pilates is beneficial for athletes engaged in different sports because it helps stretch the muscles and decreases the risk of injury by strengthening the muscles around the joints.   Strength in the core will also help in effectively executing certain moves, like your golf swing, etc.  Sport specific moves can also be done on the equipment to help you to be efficient in your movement and help correct muscle imbalances.


Back Pain

Pilates based exercises are commonly used at physical therapy offices, chiropractors, and training centers.  People who had back pain and then start practicing Pilates regularly often don’t feel it anymore.

What makes Pilates so effective in the treatment of back pain is that it addresses body imbalances the cause the pain.  Pilates helps to correct posture, strengthen the core, increase flexibility, and increase your body awareness.  When you have a strong center with flexible joints, you are able to align and support your body and spine correctly, resulting in less strain and no pain.

-Back pain can be a result of many different causes.  Always check with your physician before starting a Pilates program.

Pregnancy and Pilates

Pilates is an excellent form of exercise for a healthy pregnancy.  It is beneficial both during and after pregnancy.  Pilates is perfect because it is very adaptable and modifications can be made to almost all exercises to adjust with your body and abilities.

Sessions at Pilates Ten are one on one which is ideal for keeping you safe and comfortable while working out throughout your pregnancy.  As your body changes so will your routine.  Pre-natal Pilates is not strenuous, but always pay attention to your body and don’t over do it.  As the baby grows your center of gravity will change, so we will be more cautious when moving about the equipment.

During pregnancy your body produces the hormone “relaxin” to promote flexibility in the joints and muscles for your changing body and delivery.  It is important not to overstretch during pregnancy.  Your Pilates Ten instructor will keep you in a smaller, safe range of motion, concentrating on deep core muscles, breathing, and gentle stretching.  This will be a great time to get those mommy arms ready and keep you strong for when baby arrives!
