MEN & PILATES...

Despite the natural assumption that yoga & Pilates are more focused around women's health compared to men's, this is all somewhat of a myth! When we look closely at the human body & it's physical form, Pilates is an incredible workout for box sexes, of all ages & of all fitness levels. Strengthening, legnthening, balance and posture are four key elements of  fitness that we ALL need to strive to maintain on a daily basis.

Leading publications such as GQ UK, GQ Australia  Men's Health;  have all recently published articles outlining  major benefits that lay in Pilates as a workout for men. One of Australia's top athletes, swimmer James Magnussen recently shared his reasoning behind why the workout is so brilliant for men's health.  His thinkings were published in the March issue of GQ Australia in the article "Why Every Man Should Do Pilates" For the full article & a look into a view of his top tips RE postures & exercises click here...  other see below for a few quick & key tips! 

On a final note, my classes are for men & women...so make sure to bring your partner, friend, colleague of family along! The more the merrier!

WHAT JAMES HAD TO SAY ... 

1. THINK POSTURE

THERE'S NO POINT THINKING ABOUT POSTURE ONLY WHEN YOU TRAIN. THINK GOOD POSTURE OUTSIDE OF YOUR FITNESS REGIME. AT LEAST TWICE A DAY THINK SHOULDER OVER HIPBONE AND YOU'RE ON THE ROAD TO A BETTER PHYSIQUE.

2. STAY FLEXIBLE

MUSCLE FLEXIBILITY IS KEY FOR A YOUTHFUL BODY, KEEPING YOU FEELING

YOUNG AND ENABLING YOU TO PERFORM EXERCISE ROUTINES TO THE MAX WITHOUT THE FEAR OF PULLING A MUSCLE AS IT HAS MORE ELASTICITY.

3. SLOW YOUR MOVEMENT DOWN

OFTEN WHEN WE SPEED UP, OUR MOVEMENT CHANGES AND BECOMES INCORRECT.

SLOWING DOWN HELPS CORRECT BAD FORM, AN ADDED BONUS BEING THAT MOST MOVEMENTS SLOWED DOWN BECOME MORE DEMANDING.

4. INCLUDE ALL FOUR MOVEMENTS OF THE SPINE IN YOUR WORK-OUT

THE SPINE MOVES IN FOUR DIRECTIONS: FORWARD, BACKWARD, LATERAL AND ROTATION. TRY TO INCLUDE ALL OF THESE MOVEMENTS IN YOUR ROUTINE. IF YOU DON'T USE IT, YOU'LL LOSE IT.
