For men and women, Pilates aims to increase muscle strength and tone, flexibility and control of the body. As a result you will feel stronger, leaner and improve your posture.

Pilates is an ideal form of exercise for a wide range of people as the exercises are slow and controlled, working with the breath and concentration. This safe form of exercise is recommended by many health practitioners today.

You don’t have to be fit to start but equally you can still be challenged if you are currently working out regularly. You may be surprised at the level of strength required but this is because many of the exercises can be adapted to challenge your level of fitness.
