Workouts Women Do – Pamper Your Body Through Pilates

Pilates - Breath, Strength, Stretch, and Body Awareness All-In-One
Pilates is another form of strength workouts women need to incorporate into their lives. Many Hollywood’s hottest stars rave about its benefits. And now it has gone mainstream.

You can’t walk into a gym without seeing Pilates classes being offered.

I know that whenever a gym offers some type of Pilates class or a personal trainer offers Pilates in her training session, the classes are packed and the personal trainer becomes very popular.

But what is Pilates, anyway?

Pilates is actually named after a man, Joseph Pilates. Around 1914, Pilates was a popular circus performer, gymnast and boxer, who lived in England.

During the outbreak of WWI, Pilates was held in a German prison camp, where he taught a health system, based on yoga, Zen philosophy, and a number of exercises taken from the Romans and the Greeks.

This health system helped the prisoners to fight off illness and maintain their strength.

The system that Joseph Pilates taught the prisoners was the start of the current Pilates movement.

This modern version of the workout is a series of exercises that improve strength and flexibility through a series of stretching and balancing exercises.

Chiropractors often recommend Pilates as a way to strengthen the back and spine.

After some time using the Pilates system, an individual can typically expect to notice an increased mobility in the joints, improved circulation, a flatter stomach, and thinner waist and thighs.

Typically, those most attracted to the system of workout are dancers, as dance requires a great deal of flexibility and agility as well as strength, all of which the Pilates system provides.

It is also said that Pilates strengthens the body from the inside out, helps to relieve stress and anxiety, and can even aid in the prevention of injury.

Because it is a low impact routine, Pilates is very attractive to those needing rehabilitation from injury, the elderly, and the overweight.

It increases circulation and reduces weight gradually.

Because of this, they are workouts women choose after having a baby in order to shed the post-pregnancy pounds.

I believe in this methodology of exercise and therefore definitely think it is one of a number of workouts women need to at least try out a few times.

I incorporate Pilates exercises in Curvy Goddess Workout for my Curvy Goddesses to teach core awareness and to gradually increase core strength.

I also love incorporating Pilates into my programs for my clients especially for those who aren’t used to working out or they’re just beginning a routine because it demands more conscious movement from the participant.

There are no quick sloppy moves in Pilates. It is all about the marriage of breath and movement. Every movement is smooth, slow, and conscious.

No matter what the reason for choosing the workout, Pilates is fast becoming one of hottest workout trends, and one of the easiest to adapt to all ages and lifestyles.

But like any workout regimen and any workouts women embark, she should consult their physician before starting. There may be limitations you may not be aware of, and above all other benefits that a workout may bring, your health should be considered above all else.

Until next time Curvy Goddess…Stay Strong and Stunning!
