The New Workout Mindset - Function & Longevity

Experts have noticed a recent trend in exercise – a shift in mindset when it comes to “working out” – and we’ve gotta say we couldn’t agree more!

exercise is shifting!

People are now focused on “function and longevity”.

As longevity becomes a primary health focus, more and more people are opting for movement that advances their function and better protects them against injury. A type of low impact, strength training that prepares the body for day-to-day activities and keeps you healthy longer!

Here’s where the uptick in Pilates participation comes in!

Unlike treadmills, stationary bikes and certain gym equipment (which often encourage repetitive singular motions) Pilates involves working multiple muscle groups. This is done through various movements, at a low intensity, with or without equipment. Not only are you building your strength – you are also increasing your flexibility.

Functional fitness and low-impact exercises like Pilates are “particularly important” for people 40 and older because as you’re well aware, this is the age muscle mass and function can start to decline. That’s why it was so important for us to incorporate Pilates into our practice – the benefits it provides for our clients are unmatched.
