Pilates training is becoming a way of life

Of all the popular fitness classes, Pilates seems to be not fit enough. As a training system from the recovery room, Pilates is more representative of static movement, with core control, joint alignment and coordinated breathing as the basic principles.

But pilates is increasingly seen as a “fashion” exercise, a mentally addictive form of fitness.

Satisfying human inner desires is a key motivation for pilates practice. Half of the six basic principles of Pilates — breathing, center, focus, control, flow and precision — emphasize the importance of the mind in pilates practice.

In addition, the reason why so many people like Pilates is the personalized training experience, which enables the practitioners to achieve precise strength training at a pace that “suits them”. In terms of teaching mode, private education and small group classes are the main teaching methods. In terms of training equipment, there are auxiliary tools such as Reformer, swing bed, Wind chair, spinal orthosis, ladder bucket and so on, which can bring personalized advanced practice for users. Pilates training can be both easier and more challenging with equipment. On the other hand, precision training at a pace “suitable for oneself” also ensures the safety of sports to a certain extent.

Pilates training is becoming a way of life. Pilates founder Joseph H. Pilates has mentioned that the main purpose of Pilates is to develop practitioners to understand and use the body in a correct way.

Spiritual addiction and personalized training experience also satisfy people’s pursuit of a better lifestyle. Perhaps, as the title of Pilates founder’s book Return to Life puts it, the purpose of pilates practice is not to lose fat and shape, nor to do pilates poses, but to “get back to Life” itself.
