Pilates is for everybody because we can adapt it to each individual’s needs and goals. Regardless of your current fitness level — from sedentary office worker to fitness — The Pilates Method can be your prime mode of body conditioning. Pilates will stretch, strengthen, and balance your body without building bulk. Joseph Pilates designed more than 600 specific exercises using the mat and specially designed equipment to develop the body uniformly. Instead of performing many repetitions, Joseph Pilates preferred fewer, more precise movements requiring proper control, form, and breathing. Because your mind is required to engage with your body to perform movements correctly, you experience a new awareness of muscle function and control. The “powerhouse” — abdomen, lower back and buttock — is supported and strengthened thus enabling the rest of the body to move more effectively.
Springs Pilates Pleasanton also offers sports-specific Pilates programs. We have trained golfers, runners, cyclists, soccer players, tennis players, equestrians, swimmers, dancers, and more. We are available for team conditioning in our studio or at your site.
