Pilates with Jacky Fenton
Pilates is a complete exercise method developed by its founder Joseph Pilates over the course of a lifetime dedicated to improving physical and mental health.
Pilates has become very popular with the general public of all ages and levels of fitness, some of whom have never embarked upon any form or physical fitness regime before.
The slow controlled flowing movements of Pilates primarily strengthen the core muscles that stabilize and support the spine and improve overall mobility, thus realigning the body and correcting postural problems. Pilates brings mind and body together, focusing strongly on total concentration, balance, precision and breathing. As a result, your posture will change and you will move more efficiently.
By core strength, we are talking about your back, abdominal and pelvic muscles. Through Pilates, you will be able to develop these muscles without adding bulk, increase your flexibility and agility and at the same time toning your stomach and thigh muscles.
No matter what your physical condition from the first time exerciser to the top athlete, from sufferers of back, hip or neck problems, osteoporosis, osteoarthritis or pregnant women – the good news is that many people who suffer with remedial problems often find themselves pain free as a result of taking up Pilates.
