Can Pilates help you lose weight?
As with every exercise program – as long as you stick to it and combine it with a healthy diet, you can lose weight! Pilates is a great workout to help you strengthen your body and improve your balance. It stretches and tones at the same time.
The Pilates workouts you’ll find below have elements of HIIT (high intensity interval training) that is proven to be super effective when it comes to fat loss.
Quality over Quantity
With Pilates it’s more about how you perform the exercises than how many reps you do. You want to give your full attention to staying in control and performing each movement with precision.
Therefore while it doesn’t look like a lot of work – there’s no jumping around or running, you would often start shaking when it looks like you’re just lying there relaxing. To achieve that precision when performing the exercises, you need to keep your powerhouse (that’s your abs, low back muscles, hips and glutes) engaged at all times. And at some point, you start shaking. It’s great.
Now, let’s look at 5 Pilates workouts for fat loss.
