Pilates for Sport

Pilates can be seen as the secret to success for sporting people, as it exercises the smaller stability muscles in the body which are often targeted in training. In sports specific training it is often the bigger mobility muscles in the body which are exercised, such as the abdominals, quadriceps and calves – but what about the deeper layers of the core and the gluteal muscles? Strengthening the stability and mobility muscles in the body leads to a greater control over movement, in addition to improved power and precision in sport.

What to Expect

Your first private Pilates session will include a small assessment for your Pilates instructor to find out what goals you would like to achieve in relation to your sport. Your joint mobility in addition to your core, gluteal and upper body strength will also be assessed to identify areas of imbalance to work on. Your physiotherapist will monitor these findings each session and progress you through a range of Pilates exercises from beginners to advanced level.
