Fancy some pilates moves or to be a pilates performer? The history of pilates workouts started with a German man called Joseph Pilates. In world war one, Joseph was an orderly in a hospital, helping disabled patients. He assisted them with apparatus that was attached to beds, for exercise and movement. He noticed that patients recovered quicker and were stronger when resistance was being used.

Joseph invented exercises that toned muscle groups and encouraged better breathing, helping people to become more balanced and flexible from exercises which do not put strain on the body.

Age and experience are not excuses to not do pilates workouts! And although pilates can be done on machines, pilate moves can be done at home without gear. When I went to beginner pilates classes, I just wore a t shirt and comfortable sweat pants. Not a tiny leotard in sight! Doing a local search you will find classes for pilates for beginners, where they will gently guide you through pilates positions. By attending beginner pilates, you can be sure that you will notice some of the benefits of pilates, becoming stronger, less tired, gaining peace of mind, being fitter, more flexible, less stressed, more toned with better posture, balance and flexibility.


Being fitter and healthier can help your body fight against possible breast cancer. Your body is stronger to protect yourself, and able to de stress easier, gaining mental clarity. For women who have had breast cancer, yoga and pilates workouts can offer a gentle way to ease back into exercise.

Pilates positions can be adapted and your instructor is able to guide you with sensitivity, to do personalised exercises to strengthen you, physically, mentally and emotionally. Its a great way to reintroduce yourself to exercise. For information on Pilates check out Pilates Exercise For Health.

So weather you fancy yourself to be a pilates performer with cool pilates moves, or would rather focus on beginner pilates classes, this can be a wonderful addition to your life. Pick up the phone and check it out. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain!
