Just in case you hadn't noticed, men and women are different! That becomes clear in the pilates room of our San Diego studio. Men in general are less flexible, have a thicker back, and are more bulky. They tend to be tight, especially through hips, spine, hamstrings, pecs, upper traps. They tend to have a forward head posture more than women.
Ta-DA! Enter Pilates! In each of our customized pilates reformer classes, we focus on all of this! Men constantly comment how stretched out they feel as a result of this coaching.
Knowing the male propensity for loving killer strength training, we also offer a portion of the class on our TRX equipment. Be warned tho, we choose the TRX exercises great for your corestrength, but also flexibility. Hmmm..can't be that bad, can it? Come on in, guys!
Suspended TRX planks are a favorite exercise in our San Diego pilates studio. There are many versions of them, all of which result in a killer workout!
Combined with flexibility training in our Pilates Reformer classes, you will see some awesome changes in your body quickly!
As with all our classes, we put you in a group which matches your fitness level and goals. Lots of classes to join right now.
The Pilates Method uniquely combines core strengthening in just the right body alignment so that you improve your flexibility at the same time. That means you are stretching out at the same time you are strengthening.
At our Mission Valley San Diego Pilates Studio, our pilates room is full of the latest state of the art Pilates equipment. While the person in this photo is strengthening her arms and upper back, she is also stretching her spine.
Bonus points: It feels so good!
Pilates is great for back problems. Building strength and flexibility is the key! Ask us how we do it at our San Diego Pilates studio in Mission Valley.
Since today is National Hamburger Day, we needed to say a word here in our fitness blog...
Maybe hamburgers aren't your weakness....but we are betting SOME kind of food is. At our Pilates Studio in Mission Valley we believe that life should be enjoyed. No need to be perfect ALL the time. If you're feeling guilty about that delicious burger today, come in for a high energy Pilates Reformer/TRX exercise class. It burns lots of calories.
And National Hamburger Day only comes once a year.
