Is this workout suitable for me?

Pilates is the only workout (along with swimming) that is now recommended by doctors for people of all ages with any musculoskeletal problem. This is because Pilates does not damage the body and can adapt to the needs of every person, regardless of their weight or if they have been trained in the past. In a few words Pilates is for everyone.

A few words from the Expert…

Pilates does no miracles. Of course your body and posture change but that requires effort, perseverance and time. You can not change in a week, but in 10-20 lessons you start to see the change that is impressive. That’s why Pilates is good in all cases and what makes it so unique. Without exaggeration there is no body that does not benefit from its beneficial properties.
