Incorporating Pilates into your fitness regimen as you get a bit older is easy to do and helps fight the body’s inclination to lose mobility. Not only does Pilates for seniors help keep your muscles limber and active, but your joints will be far more lubricated, and you’ll avoid potential issues that come with high-impact activities like running. We want you to enjoy lifelong mobility and the freedom that comes with keeping your body strong, and our Pilates programs are designed to do just that.
To avoid the injury, you need to build strong abdominals and back muscles in order to keep your body functioning at the highest level. This isn’t to say you need to be ready to ski down a steep black slope or compete in a weightlifting competition, but a strong midsection will keep you from throwing your back out when you bend over to pick up a box or your grand-child!
Strong mind-body connections also keep you aware of what’s going on throughout your body, and they give you the ability to stop an activity or make adjustments before you find yourself on the floor. Pilates not only builds a strong body, but is vital in keeping your brain healthy too. We want to fight the expectation that aging means feeling older, and with a Pilates for seniors class at our studio, you can do just that!
