Enjoy the amazing health benefits of Pilates by joining the The Pilates Bar in New York. At The Pilates Bar, your body will totally transform from the inside out. You will be empowered as you discover your inner strength, increase your flexibility and stamina, improve your balance and posture and in doing so, your overall physical well-being and appearance.
Pilates is an efficient method of total body conditioning that focuses on the core while simultaneously strengthening and stretching your body in balanced alignment creating muscular length and not bulk. And instead of reps, the focus is on quality of movement and flow between exercises allowing for an efficient, balanced and graceful technique. When guided correctly by a intelligent teacher, it can be safely practiced throughout a lifetime.
Not only does Pilates promote weight loss, it is a very specific tool for the golfer, tennis player and equestrian searching for the needed strength and balance to deepen their existing skills, correct bad form and to advance their training level.
Core strength is the balanced development of the superficial and deep muscles that stabilize, align, and move the trunk of the body, especially the abdominals and muscles of the back. Ultimately, your true strength isn't measured by how much you can bench press, but the functional strength of your core. Strengthening your core will create a stable trunk that optimizes the power in your arms and legs by moving your body from the inside out!
Body Sculpting is undoubtedly an extraordinary outcome of Pilates that has the most potent aesthetic effect on your posture and appearance. In addition, the capacity to be able to change and maintain your body– smaller waistline, defined arms, firmer thighs and gluts and a taller, leaner physique- is powerful source of self-esteem and confidence that builds and carries over to all aspects of your life. Your changing wardrobe and the many compliments are proof of the rewards!
Flexibility is continually gained in each Pilates exercise as well as when moving from exercise to the next. Flexibility prevents everyday injury that may occur when turning over in bed, getting out of bed or a chair, bending down, reaching up or lifting an object, or simply walking up and down the stairs. It improves your posture and confidence by lengthening your muscles for a taller, more slender physique. Whether your daily activities involve sitting at a desk, raising children or traveling, flexibility frees up your mobility in an often confined space with a sense of physical ease. While maintaining and enhancing one's flexibility is a life-long process, the rewards are invaluable and go way beyond simply enhancing your cardio or sports performance!
