5 REASONS YOU MUST DO REFORMER PILATES!
Reformer Pilates is a unique form of exercise that offers an array of benefits, such as heightened strength and flexibility. One study shows this practice improves mental health through its ability to increase overall fitness in just six sessions. If you’re looking for a way to improve your physical well-being or stay fit without sacrificing time commitment, reformer pilates may be the perfect choice!
Reformer Pilates has been shown by research from The University of Chicago Medical Center to have significant effects on improving both mental and physical conditions within minutes after starting classes; one being increased blood flow – which can lead indirectly to improved memory function because it enhances oxygen delivery throughout our body’s systems.
5 of the benefits of Reformer Pilates for fitness are as follows:
1.Full body workout
Using a Reformer to perform specific, individualised movements will give you an all-over body workout. The subtly of the springs on this machine is what gives it its global strength; not just targeting muscles that are large in size but also strengthening small stabilisers which would otherwise go unnoticed and left weaker from imbalance. When there’s any kind of unevenness or weakness present within your movement, you’re able to work unilaterally with these machines by focusing in and correcting imbalances as they arise like never before!
2. Builds strength and tones muscles
Reformer pilates is the perfect way to tone up and slim down by exercising your whole body. The springs in the reformer machine create resistance, so you can increase or decrease it as needed for a more intense workout that targets specific muscles based on what part of your body you need to work out- think shoulders with peck deck flys & ab crunch exercises! And since all muscle groups are targeted during this dynamic exercise routine, there’s no chance of one group being neglected while another gets overworked.
3. Low impact (but high intensity)
Reformer Pilates is one of the most popular forms of physical therapy today. The springs and ropes are specifically designed to enable you work in a horizontal plane, rather than bearing weight on your body which reduces strain through muscles while increasing muscle tone and strength. Low impact movements allow for repetitive motions that assist with strengthening areas recovering from injuries back to their original form so they can heal quicker!
4. Improves core and posture
Many of the exercises performed on a Reformer machine target your core and peripheral postural muscles at the same time. This strengthens all sides of you, resulting in better posture!
5. Improves mental health
From finding mindfulness in movement to natural mood boosts, Reformer Pilates has a lot of benefits for physical and mental health. A lot of research has been done on the benefits that Reformer Pilates can have for your body. From increasing muscle strength, toning, improving flexibility and posture to reducing stress hormones like cortisol levels while boosting endorphin production which allows you a natural mood boost; this exercise is not only beneficial but improves mental health as well!
