You Are What You Eat
Pilates is a form of exercise ideal for both fitness and rehabilitation. It is often used by elite athletes and dancers as many of the exercises can be adapted to become very sports specific.
Pilates focuses on body alignment and using your muscles in a controlled way while integrating breath into each movement.
Pilates can be performed either on the mat or using specialised Pilates equipment such as the Reformer bed, Trapeze table and Wundachair.
Pilates is designed to improve strength, posture, flexibility as well as coordination. All Pilates sessions will focus on the same 6 principles: centering, control, concentration. precision, breathing & flowing movement.
Functional Training is a form of exercise where we train the body in order to improve our performance of daily tasks. The aim is not to see how many reps you can do of a specific weight or even the amount of weight you can lift but more about your ability to perform complex multi-joint tasks effectively and efficiently.
These workouts often involve body weight exercises but can also utilise specific equipment such as dumbbells, TRX, Power Plate & Freeform boards to name just a few. Functional training is valuable to everyone who wants to improve their quality of life as well as their strength, endurance or any sports specific goals.
