Pilates is by far the most popular class I run in Northampton, with new classes and specialist classes starting in 2014.
There's more to pilates than developing "strong abs" or "core strength". Pilates is an exercise system that focuses on stretching and strengthening the whole body to improve balance, muscle-strength, flexibility and posture. It was created by German-born Joseph Pilates in the early 1900s and was used in the rehabilitation of many soldiers during the war.
Initially adopted by professional dancers in the US as an effective form of recovery after injury, pilates has steadily grown in popularity around the world.
Pilates can help improve posture, muscle tone and flexibility, core strength and joint mobility, as well as relieve stress and tension. There is evidence that pilates can provide pain relief to people with non-specific lower back pain.
Classes with LM Fitness are kept small (maximum of 12 people) in order to ensure that all participants perform the exercises effectively and reap the benefits available to them.
