Kansas City Pilates Rocks!

Kansas City Pilates can be very beneficial for those who participate. The Athletic Club will now be offering the class Pilates Barre on Tuesdays from 6:30 PM – 7:30 PM.

Pilates is a great workout for your abdominal muscles. Pilates works your core better than a lot of other exercises.

Do you have chronic lower back pain? Pilates may be able to help! Pilates has been shown to help relieve lower back pain by strengthening your core.

Pilates is easier on your joints than most workouts. This is because Pilates uses movements that are slower and controlled which puts less impact on your joints.

With so much going on in our lives it is nice to take a break from all of that thinking sometimes. Pilates allows you to do that because it requires so much focus. Pilates will help you focus on your breathing, body, and how they both work together.

Pilates can also help improve your overall performance in various fitness activities and sports. Strengthening your core can help improve your results with these other areas of fitness such as running or yoga. If you play a sport you can even use Pilates to work on a certain area to improve your performance.

If you want to increase your flexibility you should consider Pilates. Through the movements in Pilates, you stretch your muscles and become more flexible. A lack of flexibility can affect your performance in various fitness exercises as well as cause injury during workouts.

Come see all that Kansas City Pilates has to offer at The Athletic Club of Overland Park! We are excited to be adding new classes to our calendar!
