The Benefits of Pilates

Pilates is great for everyone. Whether you're pregnant, injured, old, an athlete, a weight trainer, a dancer....

Depending on your body and what you are trying to achieve, you can gain any of the below aspects from taking up Pilates:

* Improve your overall body strength
* Improve your flexibility and posture, keeping the body mobile
* Helps to prevent or reduce injury
* Improves your coordination, stability and balance
* The precise and controlled movements will target specific muscles especially your local   stabilising muscles
* It will help build long, lean muscles by combining exercise and stretching
* It is an effectible body-sculpting workout
* A dynamic class will deliver cardiovascular conditioning benefits, therefore helping you burn fat and loose weight!

Herewith commences the Chloe’s Pilates Blog (after much deliberation and persuasion).  Thank you all for your support and encouragement, I hope in return I can provide you with regular and wholesome bulletins that will aid you in your practise of Pilates as well as general health and wellbeing.

Run down? Stressed? Tired? Over worked? Not enough hours in the day?  This is life in the 21st century although sometimes it seems it’s less about living the 21st century, more like surviving the 21st century!  Nowadays it seems that it’s the norm to live a frenetic life driven by a desire to achieve more than what we have already, and although this drive is usually positive, it can often over stimulate ourselves to the extent that we don’t listen to the needs of our bodies and consequently we become worn out. So listen up if you want to really start realising your potential and performance by nurturing yourself from the inside out.  I’ve been fortunate enough to learn some tough lessons over the past years, the upshot being that I now have a black book of vital tips, tricks, exercises and formulas which I’m about to share with you………

Enjoy and please do pass on any comments or feedback.

Love Chloe xxx
