Pilates for the bride

Bruce Mars

Pilates sounds complicated just by the sound of it, doesn’t it? What exactly is it? Sometimes fitness trends can feel way more complicated than they are. If you’re intrigued by Pilates, but don’t know what it is and are a little hesitant to walk into a class without knowing what to expect first, Wedding Affair is here to break it down for you so you can confidently strut in like you know what you’re doing.

What Is Pilates?

Pilates is a form of low-impact exercise that aims to strengthen muscles while improving postural alignment and flexibility. Pilates moves tend to target the core, although the exercises work other areas of your body as well. You can do Pilates with or without equipment (more on that below), but no matter what, expect the moves to involve slow, precise movements and breath control.

Pilates Works Several Muscle Groups

Pilates is not restricted to specific body parts. Yes, it moves focus on your core and trunk, but that doesn’t just mean your abs. Although Pilates is specifically defined as exercise for the core or abdominal muscles, it is important that clients know that the core includes the entire trunk, which is the abdominals, the hips, the inner and outer thighs, and the back. So expect a workout that works your entire body.

You’ll Feel Your Muscles Burn During Class

While you may not be crushing high-intensity exercises like squat jumps or lifting heavy dumbbells, the mostly bodyweight routines that this form of exercise offers can be pretty intense. Take the signature Pilates Hundred, for example. A core-focused move that involves less than two inches of constant movement will make your abs burn. A good instructor should give you modifications so that you can perform each movement with good form.
