Pilates for weight loss

Can you lose weight doing Pilates? This is a question that I often get asked, especially at this time of year. New Year New You, right? My answer is yes.

Pilates IS strength training as well as many other things that have been and will be covered in other posts. But for this one, I would like to explain that Pilates aims to build strength by working with resistance; the springs on the apparatus and also on the mat with magic circles, thera bands and using light weights. Gaining muscle increases calorie-burning potential. That means increasing your metabolism. Hooray!

Pilates promotes body awareness and the mind-body connection. Regular practice will inspire you to take control of your body and make healthier eating habits. It would be hard to lose weight with ANY exercise system if you stop for a burger on the way home.

But… if looking good is your goal this year, Pilates improves your posture which will automatically make you look taller and thinner. Isn’t that why most women wear heels?
