Anti Aging Exercise

Anti Aging Exercise - is there really such a thing?

Yes, for me it was specifically having a baby in my late 30's and then having to keep chasing her around in my 40's. Even with all the lack of sleep they keep you young.

O.K. I understand we all don't or can't have babies to keep us young and running all the time. So, what else can we do?

Some of the effects of aging can definitely be reversed with resistance and stretching exercises such as Pilates.

Even though Pilates based exercises may not cure many of the illnesses and diseases brought on by aging, it can definitely help to slow down and even reverse some of the adverse affects.

Pilates and Anti-Aging Exercises Can Enhance:

1. Muscular Strength and stability.

2. Improve Joint function.

3. Strengthen bones and prevent bone loss and osteoporosis.

4. Improve balance and core strength.

5. Decrease risk factors for heart disease, stroke, and type-2 diabetes.

6. Improve posture making us look taller and younger.

Why use Pilates for anti-aging exercise?

As we age gravity tends to pull us down... we lose inches... our bellies start to protrude... our feet flatten... stuff sags and just doesn’t look as good as it did when we were age 30.


This all does not have to happen!

"The health of our spine is directly proportional to the age of our body." -Joseph Pilates

If your spine is weak and always in pain it will age your whole body.

How many people do you see walking around hunched over or with bad posture that look younger than they are?


What about the people that are walking around with their heads held high, shoulders back, and spine erect. They probably look at least 5 – 10 years younger than they are.

The beauty of Pilates as anti-aging exercise is that it works to realign the spine while correcting the muscular imbalances throughout the body to bring you back to a natural state of homeostasis.

Pilates is mind-body exercise at its finest!

Just look at Winnie here, in her 70's, with good posture and length in her spine. Makes her look not a day over 50!

Pilates anti aging exercises can be done on a mat or on equipment. The resistance comes from your own body weight on the mat and from spring tension on the equipment.

The result is a stretching and strengthening of the muscles, while simultaneously pulling on the bones and joints of the skeleton.

This action helps to stabilize and realign the spine and bring the body back to its natural state.
