Swimmers Benefit from Pilates
Are you a wayward swimmer? Practicing Pilates can get you back on course – wayward swimming might indicate the balance of your stroke is off. Swimmers benefit from Pilates by increasing their total body awareness so they can master precise, fast, and tight turns in competition.
When someone veers off their lane, it is usually a sign that they struggle to control equal rotation from one side of their body to the other. Reformer Pilates helps build core strength that leads to a long, powerful, and equally balanced stroke; and has also proven to help swimmers increase their total body awareness so they may master precise, fast, and tight turns in competition. Our Reformer Pilates class helps swimmers incorporate simple, efficient, and effective diaphragmatic breathing patterns, which minimizes energy outlay and maximizes available oxygen to working muscles.
