We've put together a few pointers on the perfect workout wardrobe to ensure you hit our Glasgow pilates studio dressed for the occasion.
Pilates was created by German carpenter and gymnast, Joseph Pilates. He wanted to help injured dancers and soldiers maintain their fitness levels, without risk of further injury. Joseph Pilates believed that physical and mental health were well connected. In the 1920's he opened a Pilates studio in New York. It's since become a staple fitness class in studios across the world!
Our pilates class at Village Gym Glasgow is designed for those who want to transform the way their body looks, feels and moves.
Attending regular pilates classes will improve strength and tone the body, helping to shape a sleek physique, firm thighs, tight glutes and flatter abs.
What's not to love?
The hundred (while focussing on breathing, we'll target core strength to improve stability)
The roll up (a gentle, well-controlled move to stretch the spine and strengthen abs)
Leg circles (movements to strengthen the hips and core muscles)
Rolling ball (this move massages the spine and opens up the back)
Series of 5 (a series of moves designed to strengthen the abs and back muscles)
You'll get a lot more from your Glasgow pilates class than just a fun workout! Our pilates class offers a number of great benefits too...
