Get In Shape Through Pilates

Sep 10, 2008
Everyone wants to be healthy and stay fit. That is why there are so many kinds of exercise regimes in the market. But the effectiveness of the exercise will depend on which kind of exercise routine you are following; not all exercise works for everyone.

And that is where Pilates score above every other exercise forms. This versatile exercise form is suitable for every individual irrespective of age and lifestyle.

There are many levels of Pilates exercise which can be customized to suit the need of the individual. Pilates can be practised by people who are looking to lose weight to athletics who want to stay fit.

In a Pilates exercise, all muscles of the body are equally targeted giving you an overall reduction. Many exercise regimes fail to do that; they target one area more than the other leading to a weight loss which is not uniform.

Another great feature of Pilates is that they very effectively target fat deposits in stubborn areas like buttocks or abdomen. So, you will not hit a stagnant point that one is bound to get with traditional exercise forms.

Also, Pilates will help you not only to lose unwanted fat but also tone your body to perfection. Your flexibility and balance will gain a new height if you regularly practise Pilates.

Not only will Pilates increase your body flexibility and help you to maintain a good physique, the way Pilates exercises are done, also help in relieving stress.

Stress is a silent killer that kills many apparently healthy people every year. So if you lead a stressful life for some reason, take a little time from your busy schedule to have a Pilates session.

It will work wonders for your stress level and also give you a more healthy and fit life. If you are an athletic person or a dancer, regularly doing Pilates exercise will help you to reduce injuries and also enhance your flexibility.

But the reason that many people cannot follow a Pilates regime is because you need a certified trainer to teach you the right ways of doing the Pilates exercises.

And it means paying a hefty fee and also taking time from a busy day to accommodate Pilates classes. So if time is a rarity for you, then Pilates DVD is the best solution for you.

However the credential of the instructor is very important in such a DVD. Pilates DVD will be perfect for new mothers to get back into shape without stepping out of the house.

They can get a good Pilates DVD during pregnancy (as that will help in delivery) and continue after childbirth. The DVDs come in different levels so choose your Pilates DVD according to your standard.
