Will Pilates improve my golf game?
Since Pilates increases spinal mobility, flexibility and abdominal strength without rigidity, our clients find their golf swing improves substantially. By training specific muscle systems in the body, including the shoulder and hip girdle, Pilates helps to increase kinesthetic awareness, provides core strength with more flexibility and aids in a noticeable difference in your drive.
Will Pilates make me run / cycle better?
Cycling and running both require strong leg muscles and a strong supportive core. An increase in stride through increased ROM (range of motion) strength and flexibility training is especially significant in runners overall time – when seconds matter. Cyclists benefit from increased spinal and hamstring flexibility to hold proper posture during hill climbs and time trials. A comprehensive Pilates program offers a reduction in upper trap and shoulder activation (neck strain) associated with long distance cycling by re-educating stability muscles in the shoulder girdle and core to enhance both runners and cyclists overall conditioning.
