How will Pilates benefit me?


The APPI Pilates brand is an advanced exercise methodology designed to improve your core strength (key in protecting the spine) and to remove imbalances within the body which may predispose you to injury. 

Pilates is beneficial for everyone to improve muscular strength throughout the body. It is recommended for people with back pain as it helps to develop muscular strength in the back and abdominal region as well as improving spinal mobility, all of which are important to the treatment and prevention of back pain. It is also great for athletes to energise muscular slings and correct muscle firing patterns as well as helping with posture.
