Pilates is one of the most popular exercise systems in the country. Indeed,

one of the best things about Pilates is that it works so well for a wide range of

people. Athletes and dancers love it, as do seniors, women rebounding from

pregnancy, and people who are at various stages of physical rehabilitation.

The top benefits of doing Pilates exercise is that people report that they

become stronger, longer, leaner, and more able to do anything with grace

and ease.

• The Six Pilates Principles: Centering, Control, Flow, Breath, Precision, and

Concentration: These six Pilates principles are essential ingredients in a high

quality Pilates workout. The Pilates method has always emphasized quality

over quantity, and you will find that, unlike many systems of exercise, Pilates

exercises do not include a lot of repetitions for each move. Instead, doing

each exercise fully, with precision, yields significant results in a shorter time

than one would ever imagine.

• Core strength is the foundation of Pilates exercise. The core muscles are the

deep, internal muscles of the abdomen and back. When the core muscles

are strong and doing their job, as they are trained to do in Pilates, they

work in tandem with the more superficial muscles of the trunk to support

the spine and movement. As you develop your core strength you develop

stability throughout your entire torso. This is one of the ways Pilates helps

people overcome back pain. As the trunk is properly stabilized, pressure on

the back is relieved and the body is able to move freely and efficiently.

Cross training is the key to losing or maintaining a healthy weight.

That’s why PiYo works.

In a nutshell, PIYO will transform your world! Once you try it, you’ll find that

PiYo is unlike any other format, and guess what? You’ll love it. Don’t worry, there

is no previous experience required.
