How can STOTT PILATES® be different than weight training or other resistance exercise?

Pilates is three-dimensional (i.e. exercises can be performed using all movement planes)

Spring resistance more closely resembles muscular contraction

Emphasis on concentric/eccentric contraction for injury prevention

STOTT PILATES® exercise is customizable for special needs

In Pilates exercise, emphasis is placed on rebalancing muscles around the joints

Pilates corrects over-training and muscle imbalance that leads to injury

Pilates emphasizes balancing strength with flexibility (for injury prevention and more efficient movement)

STOTT PILATES® exercise leads to an improvement in posture and body awareness

Weight training and STOTT PILATES® can be combined in your fitness program and are a great compliment to each other.
