The Pilates Reformer was invented by Joseph Pilates. Pilates exercises train several muscle groups at once with smooth, continuous movements. By developing proper technique, you can actually re-train your body to move in safer, more efficient patterns or motion- invaluable for injury recovery, sports performance, posture and optimal health. Pilates is so safe it is used in physical therapy to rehabilitate injuries.
Some of the benefits of Pilates include increased muscle strength, joint mobility, flexibility and muscle balance. It also develops long lean muscles and improves posture and alignment, which will relieve posture related disorders as well as improve general mobility so that one moves more fluidly and gracefully. Pilates boosts immune system function, stimulates circulation, blood oxygenation, and improves mental health.
