So what’s the deal with Pilates? You’ve heard about it, maybe you’ve tried it, perhaps your girlfriend takes a class every now and then. But here’s the lowdown, folks. This is the workout you need to start incorporating into your fitness regimen ASAP. #Facts.

And here’s why:

Pilates, which focuses on building core strength, mobility, flexibility, strength and balance, was created by a German fitness enthusiast who was not messing around. Today, wellness junkies who know what’s up are all about the exercise form, whether they are looking to tone up, drop weight, rehab injuries or de-stress. But what a lot of people don’t know is that Pilates is an effective complement and training method to enhance just about any other sport or exercise, including weightlifting, running, Cross Fit, tennis, swimming, you name it.

Many workouts/sports build muscular strength and stamina in specific areas of the body. However, the body functions in movements and patterns, not in isolation. It’s basic science. Pilates helps to develop body awareness and identify imbalances in muscular development, which translates into enabling both your body and mind to function more efficiently.

Bottom line: a consistent Pilates practice, through its integrated whole-body approach, will create a strong, balanced body and improved performance. Who wouldn’t jump at the opportunity to try an activity proven to give you the ability to be better at what you already love to do? It’s a no-brainer.

But, like anything else, it’s important to do your homework because not all Pilates studios are created equally. And you don’t want to leave your health and fitness to just anyone.
