We often hear comments from men such as “Isn’t Pilates just for women?”, well…no in fact Pilates was started by a man-Joseph Pilates, who trained as a boxer and gymnast and practised well into his eighties. In recent years we have found a growing number of our clients are men who love Pilates not only because it is a great workout but also because it helps them in the following areas:
1. Increasing their game in sports such as golf, tennis, swimming and running. Numerous Pilates exercises work and strengthen the abdominals by deepening them for maximum strength while twisting with control. The twisting action of such exercises is key to building a killer golf swing or tennis serve. Pilates has been a training vehicle for many elite athletes who find it helps fine tune their performance, it is a well known fact that Tiger Woods has a private Pilates coach.
2. Women are typically 7% more flexible than men in their ligaments and tendons. Pilates’ focus on stretching, helps increase range of motion and prevent injuries and muscle strains. England rugby union star Ugo Monye who used Pilates to get over a crippling back injury commented in Men’s Fitness “A lot of athletes and rugby players are doing Pilates for prehab, preventative exercises, as opposed to rehab work after an injury’.
3. Better posture. Many men spend numerous working hours behind a desk or at the wheel of their car leading to slouching and poor posture. Pilates can help correct this problem and give relief to those suffering from back, neck or shoulder pain. Classes are limited to 12 students, please book early to avoid dissapointment. Mondays 9-10 pm at St Sylvesters Parish Hall, Malahide.
