Why Pilates is Called the Thinking Person’s Exercise?
30 May 2019
Many people enjoy our Pilates classes here in North Attleboro, MA because they find the workout offers multiple health and fitness benefits. In large measure, Pilates allows one to burn calories and tone muscles with low-intensity routines that are easy on the joints.
But aside from empowering people to achieve their best figure via weight loss, it also allows people to improve brain power and focus. This is why it is coined as “the thinking person’s exercise.” During each Pilates workout class the muscles and joints are not the only things being worked out. The brain gets a work out as well due to an increase in its alpha peak power. As a result, people who do Pilates training are able to benefit from improvements in neural network activity, memory performance, and other cognitive functions.
Because Pilates exercises boosts brain power and improves cognitive functions, you will enjoy increased ability to focus. When doing Pilates routines, you not only concentrate on the number of repetitions done per routine but also focus on breathing and how your body is moving. People who do Pilates are able to forget about the stress that often accompanies them into the fitness center. So by the end of each Pilates class, people tend to arrive a clean and relaxed state of mind.
