An Introduction to Mat & Reformer Pilates

“The Pilates method of body conditioning is complete coordination of body, mind, and spirit.” (Joseph Pilates) We’re excited to re-introduce mat pilates and reformer pilates training as a part of Elite’s Exhale Studios mind/body programming. Here’s a quick intro into the two modalities and our offerings here at Elite Sports Clubs.

Mat Pilates Class

What is Pilates?

Pilates is a form of exercise, developed by Joseph Pilates, which emphasizes the balanced development of the body through core strength, flexibility, and awareness in order to support efficient, graceful movement.

Why Pilates?

Pilates is an advanced path to strength and endurance, as well as the ultimate mind-body connection. Pilates complements yoga, aerobics, and other forms of exercise. Elite offers the most knowledgeable Pilates instructors in the region specializing in a complete body-conditioning workout for both men and women. Pilates engages you, refreshes you, and leaves you with a sense of well-being.

It offers the benefits of a yoga class and a strength workout combined, promoting muscular harmony and balance.

Benefits of Pilates

Pilates brings core health to all ages by stimulating deep core stabilization, improving total strength, spinal alignment, balance, breathing, and endurance. It’s used to rehabilitate injuries and yes, athletes use Pilates to maintain superb physical conditioning.

Pilates is an Adaptable Method

Modification is the key to Pilates exercise success with a variety of populations. All exercises are developed with modifications that can make a workout safe and challenging for a person at any level.

Mat Pilates classes are complimentary with a membership at Elite Sports Clubs. You can view the classes on our group exercise schedule here.
