Studio Pilates is Our Latest Fitness Obsession

by Sophie

Studio Pilates is a total-body workout, with powerful cross-training benefits and a focus on strength, mobility, endurance, body alignment and breath control.

Studio Pilates delivers intense 40-minute workouts on pilates reformers in a small group environment that feels more like a personal training session, with highly trained instructors modifying your moves for maximum gain. Each class is designed by physiotherapists, to ensure safe and considered movements sequenced in a particular way to give you the results you want, fast! The exercises work your body on all planes of movement – sitting, lying and standing – so that the muscles are worked from many different directions, producing a uniform and very deep strength and tone, even without using heavy weights. More than 150 exercises in the workouts will leave your body guessing.

Top 8 Benefits of Reformer Pilates

Studio pilates radically sculpts, tones and reshapes your entire body in a very unique way. You’ll respond by becoming stronger and changing shape – ultimately giving you amazing results: long, lean muscles, increased muscle strength and tone, improved flexibility and posture, dramatically flattened abs, firmed and lifted buttocks, toned inner thighs, and defined looking arms.

A primary focus of Studio Pilates workouts is the targeting and isolation of deep core muscles, which are referred to as the T-Zone. Overall strength and conditioning of the T-Zone not only produces a strong abdomen and obliques, but the powerful stabilising muscles in the mid-back, lower back, spine, chest, and glutes. A strong core is the ‘powerhouse’ of your body. It helps reduce back pain, improve posture and alignment, and helps power your sports.

By working the deep core muscles of the T-Zone in your Studio Pilates class, you can dramatically flatten your abs more effectively than any other type of abdominal workout. 

Pilates exercises require that your body is always in alignment. This is especially beneficial if you suffer from lower back pain or neck pain.

Emphasising a full range of motion helps maintain, and in a lot of cases, increases mobility in the body.

Postural alignment and muscular balance heightens body awareness, improves balance, symmetry and develops strong and functional posture as well as helping avoid misalignments and injury. Pilates also helps restore mind-body balance.

Combined with healthy eating, pilates can help you lose weight and keep it off.

You’ll leave a class feeling strong, energised and empowered. Reformer pilates is for everyone – it doesn’t matter what your shape, size or level of fitness, Studio Pilates is where you belong.
