The Pilates body

The Pilates method is the only fitness routine that really addresses two main aspects of body training: strengthening and stretching your muscles as you perform different routines. I have seen amazing transformations in my clients bodies throughout the years. When you practice Pilates for at least twice a week you can immediately experience true strength with a lean muscular physique. Pilates bodies are definitely beautiful. Women look sleek, strong without the bulk, with perfect posture that makes them look young at any age. One more great advantage is that you can achieve a flat midsection, because as you exercise you need to keep engaging your core, making you use your entire abdominal wall.
Practice Pilates to enjoy a beautiful balanced body!
