Pilates is one of the best ways to get a toned and lean body. However, there are many other benefits of Pilates classes that people do not know about, including:
- Stronger bones – using the jump board on a Pilates reformer is very similar to jumping on a trampoline, helping to build stronger bones. Since you are lying on your back while jumping in Pilates, you do not have to worry about putting pressure on your spine, helping to reduce the risk of injury.
- Better golf swing – Pilates allows your body to move in all different directions. The twisting and turning of your spine during a Pilates class can help you master your golf swing with ease.
- Better balance – many of the exercises that are done during a Pilates class are done while standing on the Reformer. As you improve your skills, your balance will also improve.
- Stronger pelvic muscles – one of the principles of Pilates is core activation. During each movement in Pilates, you will activate your core, helping to strengthen your internal muscles that you use every day.
