Health and Fitness 10 Reasons to Bring a Guy In July 1 July 2017 Studio Pilates This month we are encouraging our clients to ‘Bring a Guy in July’. There are lots of great reasons to introduce a guy to Studio Pilates in July. Here’s just a few: 1. Special introductory offer He’ll love the fact that we’re offering 6 classes for $60* to get him started. (And as a bonus for you, we’ll give you $30 Studio credit to use towards your next workout when your guy purchases his introductory pack.) 2. His athletic performance will get a major boost Our high-intensity classes can dramatically increase speed, efficiency, strength, and endurance for a host of athletic pursuits, whether your guy is into cycling, running, swimming or dancing. Studio Pilates promotes proper body mechanics, postural alignment and breath control; produces the right muscle firing patterns for more fluid movements; and develops strength and conditioning for stamina and power. 3. It’s a total body workout Studio Pilates radically sculpts, tones and reshapes the entire body in a unique way, working the body on all planes of movement – sitting, lying and standing. This means that the muscles are worked from many different directions, producing uniform and very deep strength and tone, even without using heavy weights. That means he’ll get to focus on muscles which typically don’t get a lot of attention in other forms of exercise. 4. He’ll build his core strength Every Pilates exercise will focus on using his core to power movement in his limbs. Pilates also hits his transverse abdominals, which are vital to back and core strength. 5. He’ll improve his flexibility A lot of guys aren’t as flexible as they’d like to be. Pilates will help lengthen and stretch all the major muscle groups in his body in a balanced way, helping prevent injuries and muscle strains, and increasing his range of motion. 6. It’s perfect for injury prevention and rehabilitation Pilates allows the body to move as it was intended, helping maintain the strength and integrity of all the major moving groups of the body, and can reverse some of the problems that specialised sports can create. The Studio Pilates reformer puts the body in a non-weight bearing position, which removes added stress and pressure from the joints that he may possibly feel participating in other types of exercise programs. 7. It will help reshape and sculpt his body If your guy’s looking to tone up a little, he’ll find that Pilates (along with a healthy diet and a little cardio) will rev up his metabolism and help him lose fat, increase muscle strength and tone, reshape and sculpt his entire body. 8. He’ll receive individual attention, within a group vibe Pilates exercises can be modified to target very specific musculature so that your guy will get a highly personalised workout, even in a group setting. 9. He’ll feel energised Studio Pilates will help improve his mental stamina and release endorphins, helping him feel positive and energised. It also helps improve concentration, stress management and relaxation. 10. It’s heaps of fun!! What has he been waiting for?
