THE CORE (ANATOMY)

In anatomy, the core refers, in its most general of definitions, to the body minus the legs and arms. Functional movements are highly dependent on the core and lack of core development can result in a predisposition to injury. The major muscles of the core reside in the area of the belly and the mid and lower back (not the shoulders) and peripherally include the hips, the shoulders and the neck.

Major muscles included are the pelvic floor muscles, transversus abdominis, multifidus, internal and external obliques, rectus abdominis, erector spinae especially the longissimus thoracis, and the diaphragm. Minor core muscles include the latissimus dorsi, gluteus maximus, and trapezius

TEMPO PILATES FAQ: X-PRESS CLASSES, THE INS AND OUTS

Tempo Pilates X-Press classes have now been introduced to the WC2 studio for those with a very busy work schedule who can only afford to allocate 40 minutes to their favourite Pilates method.

The repertoire is very similar to the Full Tempo Pilates reformer class but is done at a slightly faster pace, with lower reps and a few more dynamic movements incorporated to help increase your heart-rate in a shorter period of time. You can still expect a high calorie burning challenging workout that is core focused, whilst maintaining all those sought after lengthening exercises and stretches to maintain a long lean figure.

Bookings can be made using your ‘Off-Peak’ classes, for more advice please email us at info@tempopilateswc2.com or call 07563 578 165

TEMPO PILATES FAQ: WHAT AGE GROUP IS TEMPO PILATES REFORMER CLASSES FOR?

Tempo Pilates Reformer classes can be beneficial for virtually all ages, fitness levels and body conditions.

Pilates classes are popular with dancers, gymnasts, athletes and others in their physical prime but it is equally suitable for almost any age. Indeed, one of the beauties of Tempo Pilates Reformer classes is that we tailor it to suit each person’s physical ability by adjusting the reformer resistance through spring tension.

Older clients might still have to ask for medical advice before taking up Pilates classes and to start more slowly. Many people, however, do Pilates into their eighties and nineties. A properly tailored Pilates program is one of the best-known ways to ward off the infirmities of old age.

Your true age, in the end, of course, is as much a function of how you feel as the date on your birth certificate. As Joseph Pilates himself put it: ‘If, at the age of 30, you are stiff and out of shape, you are old. If, at 60, you are supple and strong, then you are young.’

TEMPO PILATES FAQ: I HAVE AN INJURY, CAN I ATTEND THE CLASSES?

It all depends on the type of injury you have and severity.

Unlike Classic Pilates, the Tempo Pilates Reformer method wasn’t developed for rehabilitation but muscle tone and weight management. However, what does make Tempo Pilates classes different from any other fitness regime out there is that it’s much kinder to your body due to low impact, slow and controlled movements. This makes it the ideal choice for post rehabilitation and eliminating minor muscular aches including back pain.
