Jo Morris maximises results at Reform Studios

I thought I knew what Pilates was: Core strength,Core Stability and Mind-body. What I did not know was that its benefits can be turbo charged with Reformer Pilates, which uses equipment to enhance each movement. The physical workout, which focuses on quality  rather than quantity of movement, can dramatically transform the way your body looks,  feels and performs.

Four reasons why you should try Pilates

1. Rediscover your abs

Vital for holding your posture correctly, abs start to reappear after only a few classes. It’s low impact but it works.

2. You can start now

Nobody ever woke up wanting to feel the burn but sign up for a beginner class and you’ll feel like a superstar.

3. Your mind will love you for it

You need to concentrate during a Pilates class. Focusing on only one thing is refreshing and you leave the class with a clear head.

4. Live forever

Whilst not factually true, it is true that practitioners live better. Our bodies were not meant to  be  hunched  over  desks.  The  workout  alters  the  physique whilst  the alignment  and breathing and endorphin release calms the mind.

Reform Studios are experts in Reformer Pilates. Their style is dynamic which challenges the core, reforming your muscles evenly. They offer small classes with a maximum of eight to ensure more attention from the instructor to correct form and maximise your results. If you need a more personalised approach, a personal training session can help you pinpoint your needs and help you get there quicker.
