Pilates for Athletes

Many top athletes have included Pilates in their training programs offering a competitive edge both mentally and physically. Athletes' training routines must be well-rounded to succeed in their field and avoid injuries.

Incorporating Pilates will reduce injuries, speed up recovery time, improve range of motion, promote breathing techniques, and develop a mind-body connection.

Pilates helps athletes to advance their overall strength, coordination, balance, flexibility, and core control while also building core muscle groups that will prevent injuries. If an athlete incurs an injury, Pilates will help speed up the recovery time.

Pilates has been the best-kept secret from athletes looking for a competitive edge.

Those who have been practicing Pilates for a long time notice higher motor coordination and endurance with all muscle groups. Joseph Pilates himself was an avid boxer and accomplished gymnast, and his wife was a trained dancer.

The positive effects of Pilates are tried and true, as seen in how Joseph Pilates trained multiple dance legends in his time.

Pilates improves flexibility, health, and alignment of the spine, and can aid in the prevention of injuries by balancing all muscles.

The body-mind aspect of Pilates helps with focus, mental clarity, and concentration.

This is most beneficial to athletes because they are in demand of needing to understand the proper form and technique of their chosen sport. Pilates ensures the development of balance, mobility, and strength. This body-mind connection is a critical aspect that when practiced properly, can improve the performance and outcome of all forms of training.

No matter what level of fitness you are, Pilates is for you.
