Looking for a new workout to try out in Singapore? Challenge yourself by trying Pilates. The low-impact exercise is a whole-body workout with most of the movements and positions engaging your core, lower and upper body. 

There are different types of Pilates, but people would be more familiar with Mat and Reformer Pilates. As their names suggest, these involve using a yoga mat and a Pilates reformer machine as your main "equipment".

Mat Pilates is more accessible to people as you only need a mat to cushion your body as you go through your movements. Reformer Pilates uses a specially designed Pilates reformer machine to assist you through the different movements and give you some resistance as you do your pulses.


The benefits of Pilates


Pilates has been proven to improve strength, balanced muscle development, flexibility, and increased range of motion. The basic movements and breathing exercises also make Pilates a great foundation for any type of movement. It can be modified according to your fitness needs, such as with older folks, professional athletes, physical therapy patients, and pregnant mums.


Reformer Pilates

Pilates can be modified for specific purposes and fitness needs.
