There are two general categories of Pilates exercises: (1) Mat Pilates, which is practised mostly on the floor using only the bodyweight or simple weights; and (2) Pilates Equipment exercises, using Pilates apparatus that can normally be found at Pilates studios.
Pilates exercises mostly make the muscles work to lift against gravity or the resistance of bands and springs. Pilates workouts require you to take your time, focus on the task at hand, maintain balance, and practice proper breathing. It’s a versatile fitness program that helps you manage your body better.
