Improve your reaction time and keep your muscles busy!
Pilates teaches you to do complex movement faster, which helps react to things quicker in your every day life. Coordination and speed improve a lot and by constantly using and strengthening your body you work against the clock, keeping yourself fit and young!
Stabilize your joints and avoid osteoporosis
Your joints only stay healthy by giving yourself a wide radius of movements and functionality. Through circular and equal movements we lubricate the joints, strengthen and stretch the Spine, which helps us correct our posture. Regular training strengthens muscles and bones; particularly training with our body weight on the matt helps to work against gravity and strengthens you all around. If you already suffer from osteoporosis we recommend getting the ok from a professional doctor before you start training.
