Whether you are a strong athlete or looking to overcome an injury or get back into shape, the Pilates method is a great method for anyone looking to build core strength, flexibility, and endurance.
“It’s a great system that targets the core, which stabilizes your spine,” said Camilo Jimenez, owner of Move Better Pilates and Training Studio in Foothill Village.
“Pilates also improves strength and mobility, including increasing the capacity of the joint to do the normal ranges of motion.”
That capacity degrades over time through injury, exercising incorrectly, and even day-to-day living, Jimenez said.
“In our group classes, we have sequences that are built to accommodate most needs,” he said. Because his studio has three machines, even group classes feel semi-private.
“Because we keep class sizes so small, we can teach more complex movements that require more attention,” he said.
