Why is physical fitness important to you?

In my mid 40’s I discovered I have several back issues.  I was in chronic pain for a few years and during that time was unable to exercise… I gained a lot of weight which compounded the problem. A friend introduced me to mat Pilates, which then lead me to look for a Pilates class and I found Pro Fitness. Fitness is important to me because as I am getting older, my body is needing more attention. It takes more work to keep myself healthy and I need to be able to exercise is a way that does not further injure my back.

Why is Pro Fitness your favorite place to achieve that fitness?

Katina!  She is beyond amazing.  I have been taking classes with her for over a year now and I cannot believe the difference. I have not lost much weight, however, I have found that I do have a core :) And I am building strength in my back in a healthy way. The classes are fabulous. I not only get a fantastic physical work out but I also get to do so in a positive environment with great people. Good conversation, laughter, support are just side benefits to the classes. I look forward to each class — even though the classes can be hard, I always leave feeling revived both physically and mentally.

I also love KDW apparel (Katina’s line of Pilates & Activewear)- just another added benefit – I do not have to go any where to shop for my work out clothes — they fit great, feel good and are fashionable. I am turning 50 this year and am doing my best to get healthy.  I really wasn’t sure how this class would go when I signed up but it has turned out to be one of the best things I have ever done.  I now take two classes a week and love them!  I am getting my body in better shape and making wonderful friends along the way.  Who could ask for more?

5 Benefits of Pilates

Pilates_Mat_Tower_Class_JoyG-AY57

Ever looked in a Pilates studio and scratched your head, wondering what all those strange-looking contraptions do?

Many people who engage in Pilates as a form of fitness spend time working out on those machines and also practice regimes on their mats. They both offer the same benefits.

The main thrust of Pilates is the building of core strength, flexibility and lean muscle tone. Choosing whether to do you resistance workout on the machine called a “reformer” or on the mat is really just a matter of preference.

Although, many experts agree that beginners should start with mat Pilates classes, because of its attention on learning how to control your muscles during exercises. The work of Pilates is very specific and if you were to start on a Reformer, there may be muscle confusion, leading to over-taxing or under-working certain muscles.

Most people should give Pilates a try, as part of their overall workout program. Pilates is a full body workout. In taking just one mat pilates class a week for a few months, most students receive the following benefits:

1. Improved strength: Building toned muscles creates strength to work perfectly within the context of the body as a whole. As a result of the sequences using several repetitions, your body is learning to endure exercise for longer periods each time, which improves stamina and strength.

2. Well-toned muscles: Pilates gives the appearance of long lean muscles. Traditional workouts with weights tend to build short, bulky muscles. Pilates elongates and strengthens, improving muscle elasticity and joint mobility.

3. More agility and flexibility: Although, yoga is known for being the optimum way to improve flexibility, for some people–Pilates is more effective. It places attention on movements while stretching. Your muscles are warm as you stretch, allowing you to stretch farther with less pain.

4. Improved posture: Any ache you have from your head down your spine can occur from bad posture. Pilates improves posture, by getting muscles into alignment, so they are not straining to hold your body up, instead it allows muscles to work effectively without creating strain on one muscle group over another.

5. Strong core: This focuses on the deep abdominal muscles along with the muscles closest to the spine. In Pilates, control of this area is achieved by incorporating the pelvis, trunk and shoulder band.
