Why Do Men Take Pilates?
Pilates is one of the best cross-training programs any man can do
Pilates Improves Your Golf Swing
When engaging your entire body to perform any rotational movement, you rely on your core/obliques to make sure that the action flows smoothly and that the maximum power is produced. Yes, you can use your upper body to try to adapt in the beginning but this is a short-lived endeavor that will usually end in injury.
Pilates, which is known for its effectiveness in strengthening the core, is the perfect solution for men to improve their golf swing. By making sure that the core/obliques of the body are strong and prepared for sudden movement, the susceptibility to injury rapidly decreases and allows for a more pain-free and movement-happy life.
Pilates Helps You Lift Safer
Gym injuries among men are common especially as they get older. The typical culprits behind these issues are a weak core, poor alignment, and a limited range of motion. Pilates helps stabilize the pelvis, open the hips, strengthen core muscles, and lengthen the hamstrings so heavier lifts in the gym are easier and safer. That way you can enjoy your workouts more while performing at your peak levels.
Pilates Helps You Enjoy Your Daily Activities
With consistent Pilates practice, you will increase your range of motion in the joints, learn good body mechanics, and improve overall flexibility. By doing so there will be less strain when bending over to pick up things and sitting on the floor with your kids/grandkids is not painful. Get yourself back to feeling good and pain-free with the power of Pilates.

Do Men do Pilates?
Pilates was developed by a man–Joseph H. Pilates, on a man’s body FOR men. Specifically World War I soldiers. Need I say more?
Today lots of men “do” pilates because they realize the benefits of the method for their general health and for their athletic performance. Many male athletes and performers rely on Pilates as an effective cross-training program (Marcus Stroman, David Beckham, Sly Stalone to name a few ).
Not a pro…no worries we have your “back” here at Precision Pilates. Join the other men just like you who were once thinking “Is Pilates Good for Guys” and find out for yourself how rewarding it can be.
How can I start a Pilates practice as a beginner?
If you are completely new to Pilates or recovering from an injury, we recommend starting with Privates to learn the method, learn any modifications, and get you safely acquainted with the equipment. From there you can move to semi-private classes where you will be able to work out with other people who are at or near your skill level.
What do I Wear to Pilates?
We recommend wearing compression shorts underneath your shorts or pants. You’re going to be laying down with your legs in the air, standing in a split, or sitting on an elevated box. We like to contain all of you –if you know what we mean. And for safety, we require sticky socks.
