Why Men Should Consider Pilates


Real Men Do Pilates

pilates for men victoria bcMany men consider Pilates to be a form of exercise designed for rehabilitating the injured or for women and dancers wanting to improve their posture. The truth is that Pilates is so much more.

Consider the typical training patterns of men trying to lose weight, build muscle or who are just training to increase their fitness. By focusing on the major muscle groups in the body, often the smaller “core” muscles are overlooked. These core muscle are essential for your body to work in proper alignment. Without this alignment, you will not be able to get the most out of your regular gym sessions.

While Pilates may have originated as a form of rehabilitation, its true value also lies in prevention. Back and neck pain are all to common symptoms of an aging male. Through the strengthening provided by Pilates, these problems can often be prevented.

With all these benefits, it is little wonder that men around the world are becoming hooked on Pilates. Call our Victoria Pilates studio today at 250-598-9828 ext 2 or visit our pilates website
