Many people who are seeking a new fitness regime are concerned about the potential damage high-impact exercises, such as running, can have on the joints. At the same time, they may also be concerned that a low-impact workout may not really do the job. If you’re looking for an effective low-impact workout, you may want to consider the Pilates reformer machine.
If you are worried that the Pilates reformer machine won’t give you a tough enough workout, worry no more. Reformer machines are used by the world’s toughest athletes, including NFL and baseball players and members of the New York City Ballet. The reformer machine allows you to learn control while you build strength and flexibility. If you’ve never seen one before, stop by Mongoose Bodyworks and we’ll show you how it works.
The reformer was developed by the inventor of Pilates himself, Joseph Pilates. During World War I, Joseph Pilates was interned as a prisoner or war . In order to keep himself and his fellow prisoners heathy he rigged springs to the hospital beds so they could do resistance exercises. This was the first primitive reformer machine.
In 1918 the influenza epidemic struck and Pilates couldn’t help but notice that his mates who were using the new exercise springs were among those who did not die of the flu. Exercise boosted their immune system and improved body function. Pilates can do this for you as well as slow the aging process.
