Always wanted to have washboard abs, and went green with envy with those who did? Well, not anymore. With some serious dedication and discipline, this can be achieved through a special core-based fitness programme called Pilates that has caught the world by storm, and continues to grow in leaps and bounds.
Developed by Joseph Pilates, this fitness programme seeks to strengthen one’s core by using a number of resistance-based apparatuses. Across the country, many fitness centers and yoga studios have introduced Pilates as a separate class to enhance and strengthen one’s core.
Pilates is known to have several benefits like increased flexibility, improved mental and physical wellbeing as well as strengthening muscles. This form of exercise can be performed in a group or individual setting, and can even be done in the comfort of one’s home.
