Types of Pilates You Must Know Before You Choose One

For Hollywood starlets walking down the red carpet, there is one thing that is as important as their

designer outfits, and statement jewellery. It is their toned arms,legs and sculpted abs; their

physiques must always be camera ready! After scrutinizing a few interviews, we have come to the

realization that various types of Pilates is one practice that many Hollywood divas swear by!

Pilates has increasingly become a workout that is enjoyed by men and women around the world to

improve their mobility, agility and fitness levels. However, one thing to keep in mind is that Pilates

is not a singular term. There are various types of Pilates, differing in both their approach as well as

effectiveness. We are going to break away the myths, and break down the advantages and

shortcomings of the various types:

Mat Pilates

Mat Pilates was how originally conceptualized by Joseph Pilates who began teaching Pilates using

little to no equipment. The main focus of Mat Pilates is on the core as strengthening the core not

just helps stay healthy, but it also helps avoid injury to the body. According to a study published in

2014, Mat pilates helps people with chronic back pain reduce their pain. Besides core and back,

Pilates also helps target glutes, too. So, if you are looking to get rid of that beer belly, then Pilates is

the way to go!

Contemporary Studio Pilates

These classes are taught in equipped studios under expert supervision, and are considered to be the

most comprehensive Pilate style that cater to sports training, rehab, pregnancy, etc. Exercises often

combine the classical variants in conjunction with contemporary variations: including equipment as

well as modern learnings of physiotherapy and biomechanics. Teachers invent and modify exercises

by utilising the full range of Pilates equipment, including the Trapeze Table, Wunda Chair and

barrels, to achieve the best outcomes for their client. While this can be more expensive, the

customization and services make it worth every penny!

Reformer Pilates

Although Reformer Pilates uses the same techniques as Mat Pilates, it is far more intense than Mat

Pilates. Reformer Pilates is performed using a special machine or tool known as ‘The Reformer’. It

offers a dynamic, full-body workout. Classes are guided through a series of exercises on the

machine, using resistance springs to increase or decrease difficulty. The reformer trains different

parts of the body with just one relatively sleek piece of equipment. All kinds of exercises are done

on the reformer to promote length, strength, flexibility, and balance. Though you might feel

intimidated at first by looking at Reformer, but once you start using it you will realize that it is one

of the best exercise equipments.
