Pilates is a popular and preferred workout amongst all age groups for its low impact, safe and suitable conditioning routine. It may not aid in building bulky muscles, but the movements serve to lengthen and strengthens numerous muscles of the body. A set of well conceived controlled movements along with concentration and specific breathing techniques, greatly enhance muscle tone, balance and joint mobility, while relaxing muscles and relieving stress and tension. If practiced consistently, Pilates improves flexibility, builds strength and develops control and endurance in the entire body, while significantly reducing the risk of injury associated with other workouts. This century old physical fitness system is pretty popular in the Western world and fitness enthusiasts in our country are just discovering the comfort in working out this way and its benefits, especially after witnessing the wonders Pilates did in shaping up their Bollywood idols.
Pilates can bring about numerous benefits including improved core strength, flexibility, posture and balance, while being easy on joints and not taking a toll on your body. It’s a great way to get fit and feel rejuvenated, says Ms Upasna Kamineni. To put in a nutshell about Pilates, it strengthens, lengthens and tightens. We at Apollo Life Center always believed in bringing in the best and those who workout can choose the most suitable for their body and style. She said, Charan lays lot of stress on fitness, despite being tired after shooting, he makes it a point to work out.
Pilates while conditioning the whole body ensures no muscle is over or under worked out.
