Pilates for Runners and Triathletes
Pilates can have a significant effect on performance for runners and triathletes. Pilates develops a strong central muscle base for the body, allowing for greater power production in running, swimming and cycling.
For all athletes - having strong extremities without a strong central core restricts your maximum potential.
How it works
Pilates consists of a series of floor based exercises designed to strengthen and challenge the deep core muscles. Exercises follow numerous movement patterns and incorporate small pieces of equipment to work the deep core muscles and retrain stability muscles globally.
A strong solid core means greater power production, improved technique and increased lower limb control to enhance performance in running, swimming and cycling. Pilates also lowers risk of injury.
If you are injured, Pilates can be used as a rehabilitation method. Physiolates is part of a combined physiotherapy treatment approach to ensure you return to your running, swimming and/or cycling as quickly as possible.
