I’m new to Pilates. Anything I should know?

Pilates is a progressive exercise method that strengthens while lengthening you. The beginner and intermediate work are gentle yet extremely effective. The advanced work is challenging and requires a great degree of shoulder and core strength, balance, and experience. You should always attend a class that is your pre-assessed skill level, to get the most out of it and to stay safe. Pilates is a great compliment to your already existing fitness routine or it can BE your fitness routine. Just remember, as with any fitness regimen, fitness and progression come with practice and consistency. You should be training your body at least 3-4 times a week with a combination of weight resistance, including Pilates, and cardio.
