Pilates improves core strength, flexibility, balance, stability, co-ordination and overall body awareness. The use of machinery is unique because the springs help and assist with movement. A person who will usually cheat when doing a movement can make it significantly easier by using assistance with springs. Then they can concentrate on the right muscles to do their movement and in turn improve precision and quality. People who need exercise modifications for injuries or have specific goals such as sport performance should do equipment work with specific programming.
