Did you know that pilates was first developed as a way to help improve the health of bed-bound hospital patients? Well, it’s true! And though it is still used for that purpose today, it is far more popular as a testing form of exercise for all sorts of people to boost their strength. But why is pilates so good for strength?

Pilates for strength across your body

As opposed to other forms of exercise, pilates is a wonderful way to strengthen your entire body. Most notably, the front and back. Rather than focusing on one side, like your abs or chest, pilates strengthens your entire core. This leads to much more symmetrical increases in strength.

Perfect for those looking to overcome injury or muscular imbalances. You should also be aware that pilates isn't designed to help build large, well-defined, bulky muscles. Instead, it is designed to help build a much deeper, lean form of strength across your entire core.
