Many men including professional athletes such as Andy Murray, David Beckham and Andrew Flintoff all practice Pilates. It holds many benefits for men who can rise to the challenge — yes, it’s hard!
Pilates is particularly good for sporty, athletic men to increase performance levels and to prevent injury, or for older men who would like to maintain their hip, shoulder and spinal mobility in order to continue doing the sports or activities they enjoy.

I started doing Pilates a few weeks ago which I think has already helped. I did three or four Pilates sessions and my body feels good compared to the last few years when I’ve come here so hopefully I’ll be good to go for the next two weeks. Right now I feel good, I’ve practised well the last few days and not been waking up with soreness or stiffness.
