Q. What is different about Pilates vs traditional weight training?

A. Pilates designed more than 500 specific exercises using 5 major pieces of equipment to develop the body uniformly. Instead of performing many repetitions of each exercise, Pilates preferred fewer, more precise movements, requiring proper control and form. Because your mind is required to engage with your body to perform the movements correctly, you experience a new awareness of muscle function and control. The “powerhouse” – abdomen, lower back and buttocks – is supported and strengthened, enabling the rest of the body to move freely.
