Description: Pilates is a series of exercises designed to systematically strengthen, tone, and restore muscular balance around the joints, which leads to movement that is fluid, graceful, and pain-free. Pilates for Triathletes uses the principles of Pilates to help strengthen specific muscles and improve flexibility in the endurance athlete, which can help prevent injuries and gain speed!
During this Pilates class, you can expect to learn some of the beginner to intermediate mat exercises. We will start with the basics, so, even if you are new to Pilates, you will be able to follow along. You will progress through movements designed to improve your posture, dynamic core stability and body awareness and create better balance and coordination.
Bring your mat and workout attire, and be ready for a different type of workout that will lengthen, strengthen, and invigorate you!
