What is Pilates?
The Pilates Body: it’s not a myth! The Pilates Body is strong, limber, and balanced. If you suffer from chronic back pain, repetitive strain, tight hamstrings, weak abdominals, or just want to improve your quality of life, Pilates is for you.
Pilates will straighten, strengthen, and lengthen your body to help you look better, perform better, and above all, feel better. Advocates of the method have encouraged more and more people to join Pilates classes. In Chicago, FFC has created one of the city’s best programs. It will also help you improve strength and function as you recover from an injury or surgery.
Joseph H. Pilates called his method of exercises “contrology” because he believed that his method uses the mind to control the muscles. Pilates focuses on the core postural muscles that keep the body balanced, and are essential to providing support for the spine. Pilates teaches awareness of breath and alignment, restores muscular balance, and builds strength and flexibility.
Since coming into the spotlight, Pilates has been embraced not only by dancers, but also by professional athletes, performers, and actors. And now, it is here for you.
Our Pilates classes in Chicago are for regular fitness enthusiasts who need a new challenge, “baby boomers” who want to add vitality to their lives, athletes craving core conditioning, “twenty-something’s” desiring resilience, and injured individuals requiring rehabilitation.
