As schools let out, the temperature rises, and the days get longer, summer is officially here! Studios offering hot yoga in Hainesport NJ have seen a huge increase in attendees looking to get fit for the summer, but unfortunately, it can be a little difficult for some of us to jump into these exercises.

We all want a summer beach body, but if you suffer from arthritis, fibromyalgia, osteoporosis or are recovering from orthopedic injuries, it can be easy to let fitness fall to the wayside. Thankfully, there’s an answer for people of all activity levels to get back into the exercise they love — the Pilates Reformer!


What is Pilates Reformer?

The Pilates Reformer is a fitness machine that helps you to engage with the Pilates moves that you love without placing excess stress on your joints. An instructor will lead you through the program, focusing on total body alignment and control and helping you to stabilize your joints and improve your flexibility.

If you love Pilates and yoga in Cherry Hill NJ, but don’t want to risk damaging sensitive joints, the Pilates Reformer can give you back the control over your fitness. You should try the Pilates Reformer ether in a group or semi-private setting if you suffer from any issue that makes it painful or uncomfortable to participate in traditional forms of exercise.


What are the results?

The Pilates Reformer can help to improve your posture, which can help to alleviate the symptoms of osteoporosis and fibromyalgia by correcting alignments in your muscles, decreasing the stress placed on the improper ligaments, and preventing the spine from becoming locked in an abnormal position.  Pilates, when done regularly (2-3 times per week), will greatly improve abdominal strength, posture, body awareness, muscle tone, lower back problems, balance and flexibility.  Due to the nature of the exercise and breathing methods, many people experience more energy and an overall sense of well-being after completing a session.


What are the classes like?

At Future Fitness Centers, Pilates Reformer classes last about one hour.  Typically, participants begin by laying on their back and progress to the side or front, followed by all-fours, then standing.  The machine will be in movement.  Pilates classes are multi-leveled, with experienced participants exercising alongside beginners.  Modifications are taught to either challenge or decrease difficulty, making it safe and effective for everyone.

It’s time for you to take back control of your life and your health with the Pilates Reformer. You deserve a fun, exciting, and healthy summer, and we can help set you on the right path!  If you’ve never tried Pilates Reformer, and want to see what it’s all about, Contact our Pilates Reformer director, Doria, and schedule your FREE demo class today!
