Pilates today embodies a wide range of exercises from the gentle to the extreme. You don’t have to be an exercise fanatic to get great results. The original method by Joseph Pilates involves stretching and strengthening through whole body movements.
The method traditionally taught in England is gentle and isolates different muscles or groups of muscles and is great for beginners, injuries or older clientele.
The ‘New’ Pilates method gaining momentum is commonly referred to as ‘Boot Camp Pilates’ and involves a stopwatch, heavy springs and a ‘Feel the Burn’ attitude.
