The Benefits of Pilates

Rachel Fitness, Pilates Leave a comment   , , , ,

There are so many reasons to do Pilates – from core strength to improved posture to injury preventing, Pilates is a strength training regimen that is suitable for everyone.

In the coming days we will go over the top 10 reasons to do Pilates, covering a new reason each day!  It is amazing that so many people are willing to try every new workout under the sun, yet a number of these people have never experienced Pilates…not even once!

There are countless online resources all about Pilates, and this is a great thing!  But if you want to really experience Pilates you need to go to a Pilates-specific studio and find a knowledgeable instructor.

1st reason to practice Pilates:

1. Pilates is Whole-Body Fitness

Unlike some forms of exercise, Pilates does not over-develop some parts of the body and neglect others. While Pilates training focuses on core strength, it trains the body as an integrated whole. Pilates workouts promote strength and balanced muscle development as well as flexibility and increased range of motion for the joints.

Attention to core support and full-body fitness — including the breath and the mind — provide a level of integrative fitness that is hard to find elsewhere. It is also the reason that Pilates is so popular in rehab scenarios, as well as with athletes who find that Pilates is a great foundation for any kind of movement they do.

The ‘official’ end of the Groupon

It is exhausting running a Groupon!  One might think it a passive activity, but no!  Monitoring your numbers, getting the deal information out on your social networking sites, checking the question board to make sure all potential customers have the facts they need in order to make their decision and, of course, checking the numbers.  Wait, did I already say that one?  It is practically a full time job!

Now that things are done, it is time to get in the studio!  A total of 173 Groupons sold, and there are more chances to purchase it through the ‘in case you missed it’ feature on the Groupon website.

Big exciting news…within a couple of days we will have online scheduling!  This will make everything easier on everyone, both schedule makers/keepers and clients!  Plus you can track your attendance, sign in and out of classes with the push of a button and more!  Instead of being harried and worn it, we can return to our normal sprightly selves!
