These days it seems there are a lot of trends in the fitness industry. Spin classes, Yoga, Crossfit, Pilates. It can all be a little overwhelming. But it can also be difficult to know what is going to benefit your health, and what is just a fad.
Pilates has always been the go-to exercise choice for physiotherapists and health-care practitioners alike. It is safe, challenging and an enjoyable way to restore strength and alignment through the body. It is also one of few exercise programs that can be easily applied to a variety of ages and abilities. But did you know there are different kinds of Pilates?
If you have been to the clinic before, no doubt you would have seen or experienced the clinical Pilates program. Designed for its rehabilitative purposes, clinical Pilates is personalised and tailored to an individual, depending on their specific needs and the nature of their injury. You would generally consult with your physiotherapist before commencing, and would then undertake a 4-5 week program depending on your goals and the severity of your ailment.
But what happens after clinical Pilates? Or what if you are not injured, or your ailment is not restricting you in day-to-day activities? That is where Dynamic Pilates enters.
Dynamic Pilates is a fitness based program, which looks to strengthen, tone and stretch the muscles of the body. Classes involve both body weight and resistance based exercises, which is highly effective in reducing muscular imbalances and improving general posture. It is the perfect program for those looking to challenge their bodies, without risk of further injury.
Classes are taught using both reformer and mat based exercises. Each class will incorporate exercises designed to strengthen generally weaker muscle groups, such as glutes, and release generally restricted muscle groups, such as hip flexors. Classes are also a fantastic way to cross-train, when combining with another sport or exercise program.
Dynamic Pilates is the perfect compliment to your current exercise schedule. From the athlete to the weekend warrior, and everything in between, Dynamic Pilates can cater to a variety of ages and abilities. If you are looking to improve your strength, flexibility and posture, we have the program for you.
