FITNESS AT FIFTY
When I took my first Pilates lesson at age 50, I thought I was going to die. It was so difficult, but my friend and I had paid for a 7 week series, so I persevered. By lesson 6, I noticed that my normally painful neck was not hurting, and I had more range of motion. At the conclusion of the 7 weeks, I re-enrolled, and Pilates has been part of my life ever since. Combining focsed breathing with controlled movements, the goal of Pilates is to increase flexibility, strength, endurance and coordination without adding bulk. Pilates also increases circulation, aids in sculpting the body and strengthening the “core” abdominal muscles. Most people see their posture improve quickly, I certainly did. Pilates forces you to stay focused, keeping your mind alert and active. Though Pilates will always be challenging, it has become a way of life for me, I look better and I certainly feel better.
