Pilates PT: Strengthen Your Mind and Body
Many of us think of exercise as a way of losing weight and toning up, but it’s so much more than that. Aside from the physical benefits that exercise offers the body, such as stronger muscles and a leaner, toned physique, exercise has many advantages in aiding our mental health, too.
When we feel down, stressed or anxious, we can start to become nervous about completing even the simplest tasks in life, and the bigger tasks can become overwhelming. Regular exercise can help to prevent these feelings, promoting a more positive outlook and energy flow thanks to its abilities to stimulate serotonin, a natural, feel-good chemical in our bodies. In the same way, while Pilates helps us develop a stronger core, flexibility and an evenly-conditioned body, it also strengthens our mind by allowing us to separate ourselves from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, focusing solely on our movements, helping us get that feel-good endorphin buzz. Relieving tension in our minds and bodies is so important in today’s busy, fast-paced world.
Pilates PT, set up by fitness expert Hollie Grant, is a fitness provider in the UK. They boast three London studios, at-home training sessions and a handy online fitness and nutrition plan. Hollie is passionate about empowering people to love and respect themselves, using exercise to strengthen their minds and bodies. The Pilates PT Method is all about focusing on how your body performs, not how it looks, and they believe this is the key to lifelong wellness and happiness.
The Pilates PT Method Online® is a three-level holistic online plan broken up into eight-week segments. It includes online workout videos personalised to your body type, fitness levels and goals, a starter pack, expert content, a two-month Headspace app subscription, and online support.
Alternatively, if online fitness plans aren’t your thing, you can train in one of the three Pilates PT’s London-based studios, found on New Kings Road, Fulham; Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park; or Sweaty Betty on Carnaby Street. Better still, you can request at-home training, ideal for new mothers, those with limited time or those who want to take advantage of their home gym. There are lots of options to cater for everyone who wants to try the Pilates PT Method.
If you want to know more about Pilates PT before signing up, they will be at FitFest Oxford this June. Fitness expert Hollie will be on the Mental Health Panel, and her master trainer will be hosting a Pilates PT Method class. This is the ideal opportunity to find out more about the company and their classes, ask questions about Pilates and become inspired to try out this fantastic form of exercise.
