What is Your Core & how reformer pilates can help?
We all have a ‘core’, but what is it? The core of our body is the center. It provides stability and control to the trunk of your body. Your core includes many muscles that overlap each other – from your back muscles to abdominal muscles – which work together to keep you standing up straight and strong! This article will go into more detail about how reformer pilates can help strengthen your core by using exercises designed specifically for this purpose.
Core Strengthening with Reformer Pilates
Reformer pilates is a core-strengthening workout that uses specially designed reformers. During the class, you will perform different exercises on these machines while your instructor takes you through targeted core workouts until she feels satisfied with how strong and tight your core has become! All of this makes for an intense yet satisfying core workout in Brisbane!
How Reformer Pilates can help your core
When doing reformer pilates at Vibe Pilates Studio Brisbane, there are many benefits to strengthening your core including: better posture, reduced lower back pain, improved balance & coordination as well as becoming stronger all over. These exercises create stability throughout the body by targeting multiple muscles simultaneously – meaning that they work together (a concept known as neuromuscular efficiency) to create core strength.
The reformer is a machine that has been used in pilates for many years to strengthen the core and this continues to happen today with Brisbane’s Vibe Pilates instructors. Doing these exercises on the reformers will give you more freedom of movement than other core-strengthening methods such as traditional crunches – which only target one muscle group at a time. This makes it an enjoyable way to get your core workout done! So what are you waiting for? Give our studio a visit – we’d love to see you there – and don’t forget to bring a friend!
