With controlled movement, concentration and highly effective teaching skills, here is what Pilates Fusion clients benefit from:
- feeling of well-being
- sense of accomplishment
- bone density and metabolism
- full-body strength
- joint stability

Classes and privates offer:
New levels of intensity to workouts with a major focus on posture and a balance between stability and mobility.
Controlling instability through activation of the local stabilising muscles while challenging the larger mobilising muscles.
Exercises to elicit greater proprioceptive awareness and recruit the deep support systems of the core while developing greater coordination and control. Great for post-rehab clients and professional athletes.
Modifications are included to accommodate certain limitations or to make an exercise more challenging.
Certain populations that find Pilates beneficial:
- multiple sclerosis
- breast surgery
Pilates as post-rehabilitation for injuries:
- Spinal stenosis
- Spinal instability
- Degenerative disc disease
- Herniated intervertebral disc
- Spinal fusions
- Dysfunction patterns of the local stabilizers and global mobilizers
Also good for post-mastectomy and surgical clients. Subaccromial inpingement, intervertebral shearing and TMJ problems, and more.
For golfers, shoulder motion can be influenced by restrictions found in the mid-back muscles and joints, while restrictions in the lower back might be influenced by problems in the hip region. For this reason, the assessment should be for the entire body and not just the area that appears to be inhibiting the swing. For a golfer, the Pilates routine should start by doing the mobility exercises followed by those for balance and, lastly, the stability workout for stance and swing.
You can increase club-head speed by developing flexibility and then by learning how to control this newly developed flexibility. Increase club power by training dynamic postural balance and by doing segmental coordination exercises for the entire body.
