Pilates is one of the most popular forms of exercise and is frequently recommended by health professionals. Perfect for streamlining the body and flattening the stomach. Pilates develops core strength and is the exercise of choice for back pain sufferers.
Unlike many other forms of exercise, which tend to concentrate on the superficial muscles of the body, Pilates works the deeper muscles as well, so the whole body gets a balanced workout. With this carefully devised programme you can work at home at your own pace, tailoring exercises to suit your individual needs. Watch points and variations accompany each step-by-step exercises so you can check your technique and get the most from your workout. See the dramatic results for yourself - firmer muscles, a flatter stomach, improved flexibility, balance and co-ordination, less tension and stiffness - and feel more relaxed and confident after just 30 sessions.
