Instead of just repeating the mantra – “I really need to start exercising and feel better about myself,” – let’s make it happen! Highway 54 Pilates is here to help!
When it comes to getting a great Pilates workout, consistency is the key. Joseph Pilates promised that you’ll feel different in 10 sessions, you’ll look different in 20 sessions, and you’ll have a whole new body in 30 sessions – but you can’t drag this out over a period of months and expect to get good results. Mastering a skill takes commitment and establishing a firm fitness routine will help you reach your goals one drop of sweat at a time.
Unlike large fitness classes, Pilates helps you develop a foundation specific to your needs. You build on this foundation through the regular practice of Pilates. Through concentration and a focus on unfamiliar muscles, Pilates helps develop joint stability, long, lean muscles, and better physical control. A gradual increase in rhythm and difficulty allows your body to adapt to new challenges and improves efficiency in movement. Regular workouts also help improve your mood by releasing endorphins that reduce stress and increase overall energy.
Take advantage of one-on-one time with an instructor in private sessions to learn the technique, getting results that keep you motivated and when you learn the basic exercises, your instructor will guide you to the more advanced exercises.
The best way to learn the Pilates exercises is to stick with it. Sign up for classes that work with your schedule and develop a routine that works for you. No excuses! Your mind and body will thank you.
