Lose Weight Fast With Innovative Pilates System

May 16, 2008
Pilates is a great way to build strength, and cardiovascular training is the best way to lose weight by burning calories. Instead of spending countless hours in the gym doing both Pilates and cardio, imagine the tremendous results you'd see if you were able to combine Pilates and cardio into one high-impact Pilates workout!

The exercise system developed by Joseph Pilates during World War I is one of the best ways to strengthen and sculpt long, lean muscles. The Pilates system focuses on elongating and toning the various muscle groups throughout the body, especially in the core. Developing your core muscle strength improves stability and balance and makes your clothes fit better.

Cardiovascular exercise programs, such as running and aerobic workouts, have numerous benefits. They keep your heart healthy and your circulatory system in good shape while burning calories to keep your figure looking fit and trim.

Combining the essential benefits of cardiovascular exercises and the powerful benefits of Pilates, people are seeing amazing results. They are toning up and losing inches thanks to a full-body, integrated workout. Together, Pilates and cardio realign the body and strengthen the deep abdominal muscles to create a uniformly redefined physique.

This Pilates System can be practiced in a few different ways. The workout is sometimes performed exclusively on mats. Other programs use special Pilates machines to enhance the workout. But when cardio and Pilates are combined, the body is continually challenged to perform beyond the threshold of a typical workout. This means you will see results with fewer workouts and in a shorter amount of time with high impact Pilates.

Sessions of combined cardio and Pilates workouts are completed in one hour. They incorporate high-intensity cardiovascular exercise and high-impact Pilates on both a machine and a mat. Working the entire body as a whole keeps the heart rate up and allows the body to effectively burn fat through the entire workout. It also boosts your resting metabolism, so you burn more calories for hours after your workout.

The combination of Pilates and cardio reshapes the body, giving it a long, lean appearance. It also increases flexibility while decreasing the effects of many ailments the body may be experiencing. For instance, Pilates may help improve back pain or joint pain by increasing strength in the supporting muscles and promoting healthy blood flow to the area.

As always, consult your physician before starting an exercise routine. But often, you will find that doctors recommend a combined cardio and strength-training program similar to the Pilates and cardio system. When you combine cardio and strength training workout routines, you'll maximize your weight loss results. Muscles burn more calories throughout the day, so adding muscle mass with strength training boosts your body's ability to burn off fat. Cardio burns even more calories, adding to your weight loss benefits.

Your daily life is likely very busy already. Family, social and professional obligations keep people increasingly on the go, and many of us do not have hours and hours to spend in the gym. With proper instruction in high impact Pilates exercises and the proper use of cardiovascular exercises, you will attain the body you want and the healthy lifestyle you need in a highly effective one-hour workout.
