Pilates is a particularly protected and effective exercise system which aims to toughen the body in a balanced way by specifically making improvements to the function of the weaker muscle groups. Emphasis is placed on strengthening the muscles of the trunk in order that beef up of the spine increases plus posture and shape toughen. The exercises reinforce overall flexibility and fitness, making improvements to co-ordination and balance. Muscles are gently stretched and lengthened as the exercises progress and overall body strength improves.
