The benefits of pilates for those 50+ are amazing, just ask Michelle Pfeiffer, Madonna or Kim Cattrall!  If you are 50+, Pilates is a great way to increase your strength, flexibility, balance and coordination.  Pilates is regarded as an ideal exercise regime for people in or over their 50’s due to its low-impact exercises.  The benefits of Pilates include:  improved posture, stamina and strength, along with improving balance.  Whatever your strength, size or endurance, Pilates is beneficial for YOU!

Why Pilates is GREAT for YOU!

Pilates is a form of exercise that strengthens and lengthens the muscles in a balanced way. Core strength is part of every exercise in all pilates programs. Those 50+ can benefit from a pilates program because it’s important to keep our core muscles strong as we age in order to avoid back injuries. 50+ will enjoy greater flexibility, stronger muscles, improved body alignment and a firmer body as a result of pilates. No more drooping or sagging now you will enjoy a fresh, rejuvenated lift to all areas of your body!

Pilates exercises can be performed at any level of fitness, so you can start wherever you are and work your way up slowly. The exercises are gentle, you will be comfortable performing them no matter what your fitness level. Aim for three pilates workouts each week for a total body heat-to-toe workout and enjoy your new “Pilates Body!”

Some of the best benefits are the improvements to the joints that you’ll enjoy with pilates. Neck, back, and shoulder pains are alleviated when in a pilates program. So if you are looking for a low impact workout that will improve your body, mind & spirit, why not give pilates a try.
