BodyCore Pilates Can men do Pilates?
Real men dont need to do Pilates do they??? Can men do Pilates? Another question asked time & time again. Joseph Pilates was a man of course the practice is for men…. Well try telling this to the New Zealand All Blacks, Premier league footballers,The England Cricket team or the many more athletes who intergrate Pilates into their training programmes. Even though Joseph Pilates created his practice for men, it is perceived as an exercise method for women and therefore is not widely populated by men. Most men are strong, but usually tighter and less flexible than women. Pilates doesn’t have to replace weights or the gym, however after a good Pilates session one can feel many more muscles than in an average gym session.
Pilates works towards functional fitness.meaning it helps with everyday activities including your regular sporting activity whatever this may be from golf to football. This allows the individual to become more aware of their body, helping to correct posture, muscular imbalances thus preventing wear & tear on the joints & preventing injuries!!We are welcoming more and more men into our Pilates classes and can confidently say most of our classes now have men in them, we aim to put our members into classes where they are most comfortable, we do have more men than ladies in some classes.
