Regular Pilates creates an unshakeable core of strength through the hips, pelvis and abdominal region. It has a unique way of improving strength as our muscles are lengthened in all the degrees of movement: forwards, backwards, side to side and in rotation. We call that eccentric strengthening.
Pilates at Excel
The ‘strengthen as you lengthen’ approach is difficult to achieve in other exercise programs but critical for success in sports or other activities. Our Pilates students not only recover faster from injury and have fewer recurrences of pain, but they report feeling taller, lighter and stronger all at the same time – a great result!
Here at Excel we offer a mix of reformer and mat in our small group classes. With a maximum of just 4 students, we offer you a personalised class in a supportive and nurturing space. Our classes are fun and inspiring, leaving you feeling lighter, lengthened and energised.
We offer our classes on Tuesday’s, Thursday’s and Saturday’s.
