Unlike weight training, where typically one muscle group is focused on at a time, Pilates focuses on the “core” stability (abdomen, low back and buttocks), as the limbs work at the same time. Instead of doing multiple repetitions with weights, fewer precise moves are performed . Long, lengthened muscles are obtained verses bulky. It is traditionally practiced one on one, or in a small supervised group with the appropriate apparatus. With over 500 exercises, one is highly unlikely to become unchallenged or bored. Since Pilates is non-aerobic, adding cardiovascular exercise to your workout is an ideal combination.
