Because of its effectiveness,Pilates is becoming especially popular in our society of professionals and multitasking parents. The system is efficient and exact. Not only does Pilates focus on perfecting the body's natural balance of muscle and bone,but also,it works efficiently. Each exercise is centered on the quality of the movement,not the number of repetitions and sets. The program develops long,supple,and strong muscles supporting the skeletal center. The mission is finding one's muscles and using them correctly to make one's physical structure the best that it can be. This does not take much time...only commitment and consistency.
Though Pilates began as a rehabilitation program during World War I,when Joseph Pilates came to America,he focused on the dance and theater professionals of Manhattan to build his business. As a result,many of the new exercises that he developed were geared to the physically injured dancers of New York. This eventually extended to injured athletes,and,finally,to the general population. Doctors,including orthopedists,rehabilitation specialists,and chiropractors,often recommend Pilates to correct posture and eliminate chronic lower back,neck,knee,and shoulder problems. More recently,a surge of media coverage has extended awareness of Pilates training from these circles into the mainstream society. Pilates is perfect for cross training and simple maintenance of the natural balance of the body.
