Pilates is not a fitness fad; it is a holistic concept that will not only make you
feel fitter and more flexible, but will also enrich your whole way of life. The series
of movements will change how your body looks and give you a new physical poise and
greater mental strength.
The Pilates movements stretch the muscles and pull them into a longer and leaner
shape, rather than forcing them to tear and rebuild in a shorter and thicker shape
as strength training does. It also gives a whole-body workout that challenges your
body like no other exercise.
