Pilates for Seniors

Resistance Training for Elderly

MD Heath Pilates is a great program not just for the young, but for the young at heart!

What are the Benefits of Pilates if You’re Over 60?

1. Improved Overall Strength & Maintain Muscle: One of the biggest causes of lack of mobility and reduction in your freedom to move and do the things you would like to do in your life is a lack of strength. Age only has a minor impact on strength; it is due much more to lack of strength training. Clinical Pilates is excellent for building strength, in a safe, controlled and supervised environment

2. Improved Balance & Reduce Risk of Falls: MD Health Pilates has a strong element that works on balance as well as strength. Balance can be tested and exercises specifically designed to address the factors that have the biggest affect on your balance

3. Manage Type 2 Diabetes: Strength training has been shown to be an important element in helping manage diabetes, by improving muscle mass and the number of glucose senses in muscle, improving glucose management in diabetes

4. Improved Quality of Life: The biggest and most important reason for doing Clinical Pilates is that you will find that the things you want to do with your life such as, gardening, looking after your grandkids, going travelling, playing golf will become easier and your body should not limit you in doing these activities
