General fitness with Pilates

Pilates Classes Bristol

Pilates is a physical fitness system developed in the early 20th century by Joseph Pilates.

Pilates is effective for your fitness

Pilates is a form of exercise which concentrates on strengthening the body with an emphasis on core strength. This helps to improve general fitness and overall well-being.

Similar to Yoga, Pilates is an holistic exercise system which concentrates on posture, balance and flexibility. In Pilates the chance of injury is much lower than with other more strenuous forms of exercise.

Pilates is partcularly useful for:
Improving pelvic floor control
Helping to treat back pain as an adjunct to physiotherapy
Athletes wishing to improve balance stability and movement control
Postural improvement
Physical health maintenance

Regardless of age, ability or fitness level, Pilates is beneficial for everyone.

Pilates is effective as it addresses underlying structural imbalances in the body which can create on-going pain and difficulty with movement. The whole body is considered. Lengthened and strengthened muscles improve posture and overall fitness and retrain dysfunctional movement patterns, restoring optimum physical function.

Regular practitioners of Pilates feel a heightened sense of awareness and ease in their bodies, experiencing less pain and increased mobility. This freedom ultimately leads to increased satisfaction in life!

Osteopaths, Physiotherapists and General Practitioners recommend Pilates as one of the most effective forms of exercise today.
