Pilates benefits for women

Pilates is a non-gender oriented discipline; both women and men from different ages can practice this method for improving their appearance and improve their overall physical health.

Pilates will turn you into a bodybuilder –it takes a great deal of time and constant training to get to that level- but it can make you way healthier, both physical and mentally.

Pilates benefits for women's health

  • Improves your posture.
  • Enhances pelvic floor muscles and core control.
  • Increases spinal motility.
  • Enhances muscular flexibility and endurance.
  • Decreases low back pain.
  • Makes you feel younger and more dynamic in your daily life.

As you can see, even though guys can benefit from Pilates method, but women can reap unique benefits for their health.
