If you’re looking for increased muscle strength, improved flexibility, and toned muscle definition, you’ve come to the right place. Pilates for men offers a serious and challenging workout, with great physical and mental benefits.
At Firehaus Pilates, we offer men’s Pilates programs that are designed to get maximum results in no time!
Pilates workouts for men are not entirely different than those for women. In fact, that’s one of the great things about Pilates – it’s designed for everyone and works on every shape, size, age, and gender. However, men can especially benefit from a Pilates workout.
More Muscle Mass
Because men have more muscle mass than women, mainly upper body, Pilates goes right to work to hone and tone these muscle groups. Pilates for men develops both the large and small muscle groups that, in turn, make it possible to quickly build stronger arms, chest strength, and leg muscles.
Muscle Tension Release
With more muscle mass, men tend to be tighter and less flexible. Tighter hamstrings and backs can lead to daily discomfort and increased chance of injury. Men’s Pilates greatly increases flexibility and improves mobility, ideal to ensure you’re in great shape for other sports, lower the chance of injury, and to reduce everyday stress.
Controlling the Core
As one of the largest muscle groups, men greatly benefit from not only strengthening their core but also becoming more aware of their core strength. Pilates helps get in tune with the body’s anatomy and, through breath and precise movement, improves both the power and control of the core. It’s the source of power for the body that most men don’t think about!
Ready for a Workout
Be prepared to sweat in a men’s Pilates class or in an individual session with an instructor. You may be surprised as to the amount of focus and strength that will be required when you engage your muscles correctly! While Pilates for men will give you the results you seek, be ready for challenging workouts!
