In this episode Dawn’s passion for Pilates spills out into the microphone and we get to listen in and find out what Pilates is and more importantly who can benefit from it.
Pilates has been around for a long time and is used by many athletes as an addition to other training. We find out from Dawn that some big name athletes actually use Pilates as their “secret weapon.” In addition to being a supplementary training program Pilates is improving many people’s flexibility and mobility on its own.
Pilates is a form of therapeutic movement developed by Joseph Pilates in the early nineteen hundred’s and was originally called “Contrology” where the body is used as the weight for strength training. Joseph also developed some of the equipment that is used for Pilates and are helpful to add resistance to the training.
