Men Enhance Performance, Slow Down Signs of an Aging Body, and Prevent Injury with Pilates!
Let us share with you a brief and manly Pilates history: Joseph Pilates from a young age mastered the techniques of qigong, gymnastics, diving, and body-building. Before he was drafted into World War 1 he was a professional boxer and trained circus performers. He also worked with authorities teaching wrestling and self defense techniques.
It was there that he begun to refine exercises taught to the body and developed his technique that would later be called “contrology.” He continued to refine his work over 80 years working with athletes, performing artist, and more.
Pilates for Men is the control of the mind over all individual muscles. The attention to core strength and spinal mobility the body remains balanced allowing option and ease of movement.
So Men, listen up! Your true age is determined by the flexibility and strength of your Spine. The healthier the Spine, the better you feel. We remind clients always that moving the body with child-like flexibility should not be limited to being young but is important for everyone, especially you! Never miss a beat. Pilates for Men focuses on stretching the Hips, Hip-Flexors, Hamstrings, and Quads is important! We don’t want our athletes, young studs, dads, and weekend fitness warriors feeling heavy or sluggish. When we teach our Pilates for Men we use top of the line Gratz Equipment, designed and engineered by Joseph Pilates. Using the springs on equipment will cross-train, strengthen and stretch the muscles from joint to joint. Pilates for Men will teach technique while strengthening the muscle fibers – never tearing them – creating a lengthened, pliable, injury resistant body.
