Whether you’re into individual sports like Tennis or Golf or enjoy groups for Netball or football Pilates is the effective way to not only improve your technique but also to reduce the possibility of injuries.
By addressing any issues in your natural posture, common overuse injuries may be avoided. When weak or over-active muscles in the low back and Hamstrings pull your body out of best alignment these areas become prone to injury. Taking pain killers before you play is not the answer.

If your day job is sedentary it’s essential your body is ready and able to move well with control, power and efficiency when you need it. Perhaps that’s a strong core, stable shoulders, a mobile spine or strong legs and the ability to change direction quickly- Pilates is the answer.
It's Not A Stretch
Don’t be fooled Pilates is not the easy way out - although it can be varied to meet individual needs This doesn’t mean it’s necessarily toned down. If you’re an experienced sports person, a dynamic Pilates session will give you the workout you need. If on the other hand you are new to your sport, the gradual development of muscles from the inside out will be a strong foundation for your growing fitness level.
