5 Reasons Why You Should Be Practicing Pilates Daily


The mind, when housed within a healthful body, possesses a glorious sense of power.
– Joseph Pilates

Since the 1920’s, one of the most exciting aspects of Pilates is that it continues to offer a great workout for people of all ages and fitness levels. No matter where you are in life, you will most definitely benefit from practicing Pilates. Here are five reasons why you should incorporate Pilates practice into your daily life: 

  • Balance out. By learning how to stabilize your core while moving in all ranges of motion, you gain better balance. Strengthening those small, deep core muscles will keep you standing strong whether you’re working on your golf game or simply doing laundry, while connecting mind to body will help with coordination and movement to keep you strong throughout your daily routine.

Pilates is perfect for people of all ages, fitness levels and goals.


  • Work through injury. Whether you’re recovering from back surgery or pesky knee pain, Pilates offers a low-impact, safe and effective workout to continue strengthening and stretching to help you recover. Rausch Physical Therapy constantly refers its patients to our studio for continued care and wellness.


  • Relax and rejuvenate.  A weekly Pilates routine leads to improved circulation, which releases tension and leaves you amazing after every class. Also, feeling the results of being strong, healthy and fit will improve your overall quality of life and increase your mental outlook!


  • Gain a competitive edge. I recently read an article about NFL players incorporating Pilates into their workouts and praising its benefits. With improved flexibility, balance and strength, it’s no surprise athletes see greater output in athletic performance after adding Pilates to their cross-training program. Stretching and strengthening the hip flexor, glutes and hips helps put a little extra power into athletic performance, while the emphasis on elongating the muscles and increasing range of motion can help prevent injuries. 
With a few modifications, women can enjoy a safe, effective Pilates workout throughout their pregnancy.

  • Enjoy a happier pregnancy. Pilates offers a gentle yet effective workout that’s safe for both mommy and baby throughout the entire pregnancy. Practicing Pilates while pregnant will not only strengthen your upper body, legs and hips to help that post-baby body bounce right back, but it also helps you enjoy a healthier, happier pregnancy. You’ll also strengthen the pelvic floor muscles, which can lead to an easier labor and delivery!


 There are so many rewards for a dedicated Pilates student, but here’s the bottom line: no matter who you are, what your fitness level is, or how busy you think you areeveryone can benefit from Pilates. That’s why at ABC Pilates, we have a variety of classes that are designed for anyone and everyone, and we’re here to help YOU reap all the benefits that Pilates has to offer.

I joined ABC looking for a yoga studio but found pilates was more of my speed. This is not just a place to exercise but an environment where friends come together to get fit, healthy, and happy.
I love the instructors who take good care of everyone. I always get the best encouragement possible! I also like the small class sizes for anything from yoga and pilates to Zumba and TRX.
Thanks, ABC Fitness Studio, for making being healthy fun!

When my wife convinced me to try ABC Fitness, little did I know it would become an almost daily fixture in my life.
I enjoy multiple classes weekly and each is very special in approach to strength, balance, core, flexibility, and overall fitness. Feeling better and stronger physically leads to more enjoyment in all activities.
I feel stronger and fitter and look forward to continuing to rely on ABC Fitness as an integral part of my life.

I’ve been doing pilates for almost 3 years now, and I feel stronger and have improved functionally in my daily activities
I was recommended by my physical therapist when I was a patient with many joint problems. My PT thought Pilates would help me, and it did!
I feel stronger, and have a better tone, range of motion, and a stronger core. I can get up from a low sofa with less effort now as my core plus legs are stronger; I owe all these improvements to Pilates. My teacher is patient and kind, always helpful — thank you!
— Surinder B.

I certainly enjoyed the Pilates session with Charlotte — it provides some pain relief, increased flexibility, and makes me want to be more active.

I have been with ABC for about 7 years, and its biggest benefit has to be no more lower back pain and much more flexibility. Love it here!
— Mike P.
I love ABC Fitness!!! Over the years, I’ve worked out at many places, but this is the first one I absolutely love — so much so that I usually come 7 days a week! What is so special are the small classes that mean lots of individual attention, the extraordinarily knowledgeable instructors, and the nice variety of classes. It has been a huge benefit to my well-being.
— Linda T.
My balance has definitely improved, and I feel stronger. The ABC classes are wonderful! Zumba has always been a joy. Great to dance, dance, dance!
