For the older population keeping fit is essential. However, so many forms of exercise can be hard on the bodies of older adults. Many have turned to Reformer Pilates sessions at any.BODY Pilates & Exercise Physiology as a way to stay in shape while reducing the risk of injury that weight-bearing exercises may cause. With its focus on controlled breathing and quality of movement-not quantity of repetitions-many Elle from any.BODY Pilates & Exercise Physiology agrees that Reformer Pilates is one of the best ways for older adults to stay healthy.
Reformer Pilates focuses on building a strong "core"–the deep abdominal muscles along with the muscles closest to the spine. Many of the exercises are performed in reclining or sitting positions, and most are low impact and partially weight-bearing. It also can positively affect postural positions.
