How Pilates Can Help Your Clients
- Pilates teaches clients correct abdominal bracing which is essential for spinal health (this is even more important if the client is involved in high volume, high intensity weight lifting)
- Learn how to get your clients to activate their Transversus Abdominus in all forms of exercise (the most important muscle for spinal health and making the waist appear smaller)
- Pilates can be used as a form of corrective exercise to strengthen the weak points of a particular exercise. For example, if a client tends to tip forward or round their back during a squatting movement, Pilates can help target the lumbar spine extensors and hamstrings in an isolated and safe manner that will allow those muscles to increase in strength
- Pilates helps teach clients how to use the correct mechanics and movement patterns when performing exercise, which helps to prevent injury
- Fantastic form of strength training to aid weight loss, toning and flexibility
