Will Pilates Challenge me as an athlete?
• Because Pilates trains your body in a very different manner than most sports focussed programs, even seasoned professional athletes can find the exercises challenging! Pilates works the core and the whole body in a unique way that is a very effective companion form of training for athletes and any one who enjoys sports and the outdoors.
