Pilates is a powerful and unique system of stretching and strengthening exercises which make you feel great and condition your body fast.
Pilates can help you feel your best, quickly and safely, if you want to:

Core strength and stability are essential to sport performance and injury prevention. The muscles of the torso are called 'the core' and they not only stabilise the spine, but also provide a solid foundation for the rest of your body's movement.
Your body's ability to cope with what you put it through largely depends on how 'balanced' you are around your point of gravity. Back in Shape's core stability exercises will allow you to develop a deep, functional fitness; a fitness essential to regular activity and daily living.
