Pilates exercises are a low-impact form of exercise so they can accommodate anyone. Even though they are not as fast-paced and intense as kickboxing and other group exercise classes, they still give you the weight loss results and other health and fitness results that you are trying to acheive.
The Pilates classes in North Attleboro, MA are led by a certified Pilates instructor so each exercise is designed to lengthen, stretch and strengthen your body. Pilates classes are either mat-based or equipment-based which offers variety and fun.
Mat-based Pilates uses gravity and your body weight to provide resistance and these exercise routines are performed on the floor. This helps condition the muscles in your body that significantly improve your balance, physical coordination, flexibility and posture.
