WORK THE CORE
An exercise technique developed by Joseph Pilates that focuses on strengthening the core. Exercises are performed in a fluid and rhythmic fashion.
Calling all men and women who thought they couldn’t get any stronger! Come take a Pilates mat class and see for yourself how heavy your leg actually is when you are asked to circle it 10 times in each direction straight up in the air. For Joe Pilates, the 34 exercises that comprise what we call “Pilates” today is the ultimate, the end-all-be-all, full stop.
It’s you, your body, your mind and gravity, maybe some fun props thrown in like the magic circle, and that’s it. Can you make it through 50 minutes of muscle endurance? Don’t forget to breathe.
