Are you ready to engage your core like never before?
There is word on the street and in the locker rooms.
Maybe you’ve heard the whispers? Classical Pilates training, that’s what’s happening. Maybe you think this is just exercise for women? But you’d be wrong.
“Pilates workouts… are an excellent conditioning tool for the NBA. The strength, agility, and performance of my players have increased and Pilates has become such an essential part of our workouts that we take a reformer to our away games.” — Lawrence Frank, NBA Coach
“…So have golfer Tiger Woods, basketball star Jason Kidd, pitcher Curt Schilling and offensive lineman Ruben Brown. What they all have in common is Pilates, one of the fastest growing fitness activities in America, according to SGMA International, the trade association for sports equipment manufacturers.” (USA Today)
“I look for ways to turn every ounce of potential into winning performance for my players. Pilates training… strengthens the core muscles, increases flexibility, and helps my guys stay on the field — and off the injured list.” — Garrett Giemont, Conditioning Coordinator, Pittsburgh Steelers, strength and conditioning coach who has worked for 30 years at the professional level with several teams in the National Football League as well as in Major League Baseball.
Let’s look at it this way.
Classical Pilates was created by Joseph Pilates—a beer drinking, cigar smoking, boxer who built his own training equipment. He helped prisoners of war recover from severe injuries. His methods have been used on high performing athletes for more than 50 years!
Some of the top benefits for men:
• Build core and transverse abs
• Recover from previous injury and strain
• Work neglected muscles
• Improve flexibility
• Strong core=better sex!
Still not convinced Classical Pilates is for you?
According to GQ, “… more weight trainers are turning to the system to increase muscle power and flexibility. It is also the ideal way to keep the flab away.” (29 March 2012).
Men’s Fitness says “Whether you're a powerlifter or prepping for your first marathon, a Pilates class can help fine-tune your performance.”
And Men’s Health had the right idea before the Classical Pilates training method was in the spotlight: “try it, and be ready to hurt,” (May 2003).
