NYC’s Pilates Pros Can Ease You In No Matter How Unfit You Feel

Can I Do Pilates If I’m a Beginner? Of course! Pilates is one of the most beginner-friendly fitness systems available. In fact, one of the core tenants of Pilates is that the workout can be adapted for any body type or fitness level. Almost every exercise has multiple variations, some of which are almost certain to be appropriate for you no matter what your fitness level. All you need is a good instructor — and the instructors that teach beginner Pilates at NYC‘s Mongoose Bodyworks are some of the best. We welcome beginners of all types. Why Take Pilates? Pilates has a number of health benefits. At it’s core, Pilates is a set of exercises designed to strengthen and develop the muscles in your torso and abdomen — but it’s also a set of mental exercises designed to help relieve stress and improve concentration. The benefits of the combination are profound, including:

  • Better posture
  • Deeper breathing
  • Improved muscle tone
  • Increased physical stamina
  • Easier focus in short- and long-term
  • Decreased stress
  • A smooth, toned belly
  • Reduced fat
  • Stronger joints
  • Less aches and pains
  • Extraordinary flexibility
  • Superior strength

Making The Most of Pilates As powerful of a tool as Pilates is for sculpting your body, it — like everything else — can’t do the job all by itself. That’s why we offer more than just Pilates at Mongoose Bodyworks. In addition to working with you on Pilates, our one on one trainers will sit down and consult with you on your diet, other exercise, lifestyle changes, and other tools you can use to maximize the effectiveness of your Pilates workout. After all, coming in four times a week for a Pilates workout isn’t going to help you get rid of your belly fat if you follow up every workout with a Quarter Pounder with Cheese. If you want to make the most of your Pilates workout, you should:

  • Eat mostly whole foods, mostly fruits and vegetables, and in a wide variety of colors.
  • Get 8-9 hours of uninterrupted sleep every night.
  • Drink at least 64 ounces of water every day.
  • Reduce outside stress factors, both physical and emotional

Those four factors are the basic building blocks of physical and mental health. Pilates for Beginners in NYC is a powerful tool, but if you ignore the basics, you’ll be fighting an uphill battle, no matter how fit (or unfit) you are. How to Get Started in Pilates That’s easy — come down to Mongoose Bodyworks and introduce yourself to our instructors. We can get you started in minutes.
