What is Pilates?
Pilates is a physical fitness system of movement that was developed in the 20th Century by Joseph Pilates, that is focussed on repeated movements performed with control. When done repeatedly under light resistance, Pilates will improve flexibility, build strength and develop functional motor control strategies in the entire body. It is a great system for developing body awareness following an injury or surgery.
At Kinetic, we tailor the traditional Pilates principles to a Clinical Pilates method which is specific to the individual’s needs. We start with an accurate assessment of movement classification of the affected body part of movement pattern, which enables not only a suitable entry into exercise but valuable re-assessment markers along the way.
Graded progressions are then introduced at regular intervals, with improvements generally seen in a short space of time to pain and function, body awareness, flexibility and ultimately performance. But it’s NOT all about the CORE!!!
Our Clinical Pilates approach is primarily equipment-based, utilizing the spring-loaded Trapeze and Reformer Tables, making the resistance to the specific exercise easy to adjust and modify. Heavier isn’t always harder when it comes to Clinical Pilates!!
