Reshape your body with Pilates

Pilates helps you define your shapes and look exactly as you want. Important is for you to want it!

There is no need to turn to surgery to reshape your body. You can do it with Pilates exercises, targeting each muscle group separately. A more “curved” posterior and a flat stomach without fat. If this is your goal, like many women, turn to an exercise program that addresses the muscle groups in areas that interest you.

Pilates method train your body in a harmonious and intelligent way. All the exercises are designed to work in the same time specific selected areas, but also the whole body. The movements are slow, and workout series are short. A session includes several different movements,” said Cori Gramesco, Pilates instructor.
