Many of the clients that start doing Pilates are deconditioned. This workout is designed to give them a full body workout taking into account that they may not have exercised in a very long time, if ever. We?ll be using the Resistance Band to add some support for some exercise and light resistance on other exercises. The program begins standing and focusing on mobilizing the periphery (arms and legs) and adding some functional movement right in the beginning of the workout. Then, a bench is used to assist the client to get into the correct, more neutral sitting positions and to help modify some of the exercises. This workout combines strength and mobility exercises along with some simple core stabilizing moves to help the client understand and increase body awareness.
