Are the gaps between exercise become longer and longer? For a multitude of reasons, we can all be guilty of this. As gaps between exercise get longer; recommencing exercise gets progressively harder and harder. Aside from exercise, range of motion, balance, coordination and mobility can be forgotten about. Suddenly people find they can’t lift their arms above their head without shoulder pain or back pain or experience joint pain where they didn’t before.
Starting at age 40, we lose about 1% of muscle mass per year! Pilates Rockhampton can help improve joint stiffness, lack of strength, balance, and range of motion. The personalised Pilates classes can lengthen muscles and ligaments and tone muscles so you can regain strength, improve or maintain stamina and build that all important mind and body connection.
Although genetics plays an important role in how we age it is suggested that up to 70% is up to you. Physical inactivity is now the major culprit associated with the above signs of ageing (mobility, strength and cardiovascular health). The age old saying ‘use it or lose it’ has never been more true so invest in your body at Pilates Rockhampton.
