Pilates Tip of the Month

Pilates for Weight Loss


Regular exercise, along with a balanced diet, is essential for losing weight healthily. When doing Pilates exercises, you won't just burn calories—you will also see extraordinary effects on the body.

Since each exercise combines muscle stabilization with slow, controlled movements, Pilates creates lean muscles and improves posture, which tightens your waistline and gives you a slimmer appearance. In order to maximize weight loss, combine Pilates with cardiovascular cross-training to help you reach your weight loss goals faster.
