What Can Pilates Do For Me?

By On June 19, 2015 · 3 Comments


Pilates is famous for creating long, lean, fit bodies. There are many ways that doing Pilates supports weight loss and a trimmer appearance: Exercise burns calories. How many calories you burn depends on your body type and your level of exertion. Creating lean muscle mass, as Pilates does, is one of the best ways to increase your calorie-burning potential. This exercise program tones and shapes the body. One of the best ways to look and feel thinner is to have beautiful posture. This creates a leaner look by emphasizing both length and good alignment. Pilates promotes deep and efficient respiration, which is essential for calorie burning and tissue regeneration. Engaging in an exercise program, like Pilates, promotes self-esteem and heightened lifestyle consciousness. Both are associated with weight loss. This is an enlivening workout that can help sustain energy levels throughout your day. However, it is not usually done as aerobic exercise. Therefore, some people enjoy combining Pilates with aerobic/cardio exercise (Barre, Zumba, NIA, DaVinci Body Board) in order to maximize their weight loss.

At Pilates Studio City, we welcome all students from beginners to advance. Our Private Sessions and Group classes are catered to meet you where you are. There’s nothing like when clients find us and are just beginning their journey in Pilates. Then we can teach them the language of Pilates from the beginning for both Mat and Equipment styles. In Pilates Mat classes, there’s a focus on core work and require you to support your body and can be very challenging. In Pilates Equipment classes, they give you a frame to work within that is often more helpful than Mat. However, it can be more challenging when springs are added or taken away. Working on the equipment can also target and tone specific areas of your body very efficiently. Sounds like something you would like to incorporate into your wellness journey? Then check out our next blog as we dive deeper into the difference between Pilates Mat and Pilates Equipment!
