Whether you spend your working life at a desk or are a professional sportsman, Pilates is an exercise technique with something to offer you.
Sportsmen such as Ryan Giggs and Andy Murray have used Pilates to complement their training disciplines. Training for a particular sport is likely to focus on developing stamina and strength in specific muscle groups. Pilates brings all round flexibility and development of the abdominal core and back muscles into play and can help a sportsman avoid injury and extend his playing career.
People who work at a desk often sit still for long periods and take too little exercise with the result that muscles can weaken or stiffen. This is a recipie for aches and pains, particularly back pain which can strike for no apparent reason. Pilates can help prevent these conditions, as well as helping you feel good!
