Pilates classes are a fun, healthy and effective way to work your core! Core muscle strength is one of the building blocks of a healthy body.
Our Pilates workout program focuses on low-impact movements that improve your muscular strength and flexibility. Even if you’re a beginner, you can enjoy the benefits of a pilates fitness class at Proehlific Park.
“Joseph Pilates presents his method as the art of controlled movements, which should look and feel like a workout (not a therapy) when properly manifested. If practiced with consistency, pilates improves flexibility, builds strength and develops control and endurance in the whole human body. It puts emphasis on alignment, breathing, developing a strong core, and improving coordination and balance. Pilates’ system allows for different exercises to be modified in range of difficulty from beginner to advanced or to any other level, and also in terms of the instructor and practitioner’s specific goals and/or limitations. Intensity can be increased over time as the body conditions and adapts to the exercises.”
BENEFITS OF PILATES
Pilates is a little bit like our Greensboro Yoga Classes in the sense that not only are you working out your body, you are working on your mind as well. Pilates features a large focus on breathing and bodily alignment so that you can become aware of your body’s movements and control them with more purpose. There are some 11 million people practicing the discipline regularly in fitness studios and 14,000 instructors across the United States. Luckily we have some of the very best right here in Greensboro for you!
Pilates is also excellent for developing a strong core and working toward providing an excellent exercise for abs and strong back while aiding in weight loss. By including the trunk, pelvis, and shoulder girdle in your workout, you will have greater control over your torso and the muscles closest to your spine making this one of the most useful work out program for beginners or advanced clients.
Lastly, this type of exercise class can assist in lengthening the muscles that will not only tone your body, but it will also help to prevent injuries and improve overall flexibility.
FITNESS ON DEMAND: PILATES VIDEOS
Proehlific Park has an awesome advantage over many other health facilities. We have Fitness on Demand, which gives you the ability to use pilates videos to work out at any time! It’s not always convenient to get to the gym by a certain time in order to participate in exercise classes that interest you. But, with Fitness on Demand, you can come to the adult fitness center and choose a workout video that you can follow on your own or with your closest friends. You choose the video you wish to play, and it will appear on the projector screen. Our automated fitness class system allows you to get the workout you need at a time that fits your schedule.
WHAT TO EXPECT FROM A PILATES CLASS
You might think you need to bring things with you or that you need to have some sort of spiritual experience during a pilates class- but this isn’t true. You just need to wear comfortable clothing, bring water and your own mat, if that is what you prefer.
