The popularity of Pilates classes in Lithuania and the world has not been waning for over a decade. Small pilates equipment – even more interesting and effective training. Many people liked this training method and were able to see the benefits of this system: it not only strengthens the body, improves posture, but also reduces or prevents pain during exercises. In order to maintain motivation, interest and increase the attractiveness of training, it is very important to constantly look for new ways to diversify training. Training with different equipment not only recruits different muscle groups, but also makes exercise more interesting, efficient and fun.
In some cases, it complicates the exercise by provoking balance, center control, or increasing the work of one part of the body, and in some cases, it makes the exercise significantly easier – by providing support, support, and also helps to better understand the body.
In this course, we will work with the following equipment: elastic band, roller, small ball (Pilates Ball), big ball (Fitball), isotonic ring.
In the seminar, we will learn how, with the help of small equipment, you can diversify training, make it more interesting and richer, by making the exercises more difficult or just easier. We will think about how to use the small equipment in personal training, so that the exercises can be modified as effectively as possible, taking into account the individual characteristics or limitations of the client. Pilates Props are also suitable for those who do not have the big Pilates equipment, and with the help of various accessories: balls, rings, elastic bands, rollers, you will be able to offer the client an effective and varied program.
Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:
• Demonstrate all of the Polestar Pilates exercises covered in this course.
