SEPTEMBER TEMPO TUNES

As usual, Hayley has composed a meticulously selected playlist for our Tempo Pilates students to enjoy. How do we pick the songs, you may ask yourself? Here is a bit of insight into the motives behind our madness…

Getting your heart racing at Tempo Pilates is a remix of Lana Del Ray’s ‘Blue Jeans‘ by GESAFFELSTEIN. It was played at the Big Chill over the Hackney Weekend festival in June of this year. Meanwhile, Lana has been raving to the press of how she is giving up music to pursue her dream as a scriptwriter for film. Lana, how will we ever work out without you?!

 

We’ve given Emeli Sande a shot of cooling you down with ‘Read all about it Part 3’ as she takes over Adele in the biggest selling album of 2012. We’re guessing the Olympics might have had something to do with that then……Well done Emeli!

 

Electro swing founder ‘Parov Stelar’ is so good, we have used him twice on this month’s playlist. Giving you that extra push in the 100’s routine with ‘Booty Swing’, we can count on him to keep you going just as if you were dancing The Charleston wearing a feather boa. He will be playing HMV forum on September 14th. Not one to miss.

Hope you enjoy our new Tunes at Tempo Pilates, reformer classes london Hackney E8 or Covent Garden WC2

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.’
