What is Pilates?

Pilates is a series of exercises focussing on coordination and movement. It is a great way of improving core stability and strength, building muscle strength and addressing muscular imbalances. You can also benefit from improvements in posture, balance, flexibility and mobility. Research has shown pilates to be an effective method of managing chronic lower back pain but it is also used across a wide range of client groups including elite and recreational athletes.

This low impact form of exercise can be used to aid recovery from various injuries, especially low back pain. It can also be used as part of a fitness programme for athletes and dancers or can be used as a way of maintaining a healthy, functioning body. If you’re injured and currently doing rehabilitation or looking to maintain or improve general fitness levels we can tailor a program to suit you.

The Prime Practice can offer a comprehensive pitch side first aid service to schools and clubs.
