Pilates for Your Sport

Developing an athlete's core – the deep abdominal muscles along with the muscles closest to the spine – makes athletes more agile, helps prevent injury and increases sports performance.

From weekend warriors to elite professionals, athletes looking for a competitive edge are discovering that Pilates helps you:

  • Hit the ball farther
  • Run faster
  • Jump higher
  • Correct muscle imbalances
  • Prevent injury

Pilates builds a strong core, increases strength and flexibility simultaneously, and improves posture, stability and alignment. It also emphasizes complete concentration on smooth, flowing movement, and proper breathing. You become acutely aware of how your body feels, where it is in space, and how best to control its movement.
