RUN

BALANCE AND POWER

While running should be the most natural thing in the world, it actually takes a high degree of body awareness, muscular strength and core stability to have a smooth and efficient running stride. The more efficient a running stride is, the faster you can go, the faster you can accelerate and the faster you can recover from hard efforts. If your core is weak, your muscles are unbalanced and your form is poor, then pain and injury in the back, hip, leg, knee and ankle can occur - it's so frustrating not being able to run because of injury. Pilates For Sports is the ultimate whole body exercise system - it can help to improve core strength and muscle balance and is always done in the context of how to improve your running form. In this way it becomes very clear how Pilates For Sports can play a big role in not only preventing injury but also in improving performance. If you're looking to overcome some of these issues or simply keen to take the next step in your running, Pilates For Sports might just be the solution you have been looking for. Our programs are customised to your individual needs. We develop a program that will best enable you to achieve the core strength and muscle balance required to help you realise your running goals. So why not take the Pilates For Sports challenge to "Be Your Best".

POWER

Pilates For Sports will strengthen your core, develop strong balanced muscles around the joints and enable you to develop a strong stable base. This will enable you to generate more power and run faster.

EFFICIENCY 

An inefficient running stride means that you are using more energy than you need to run at that pace. Pilates for Sports teaches runners to be aware of how they are currently running and then helps runners build a strong core to ensure that every bit of power they generate goes into their running stride. This comes about through the strengthening of the powerhouse, knowledge of how to engage it and the correct tracking of the arms and legs. This controlled efficient movement will also reduce the chance of injury.

STABILITY

To help you understand the benefits that a strong and stable core can provide to runners, picture a cannon on a canoe out in the middle of a lake. Now, if that cannon fires, it won’t be able to shoot very far because the canoe will wobble and capsize, as it can’t handle the force of the cannon. In this scenario the runners arms and legs are the cannon and their wobbly core is the canoe on a lake, which can't handle the power being produced because of its instability. However, put that cannon on a concrete platform and the result is very different. From that stable base, maximum power can be directed to the cannonball, resulting in the cannon being able to fire to it’s full potential. Just as a runner with a strong and stable core can transfer the maximum force generated to run fast.

BALANCE

Many of the issues a runner experiences, arise from muscle imbalance. When we talk about a runner having a muscle imbalance, we mean that some muscles are overworking and other muscles are not doing their fair share of the work. The impact on runners is inefficient running, a slower pace and an increased chance of injury. This is where Pilates can help. Pilates is a perfect way to cross train, as it moves the body in all of the directions it is designed to move, therefore restoring balance. As a someone once said: “You don’t need Pilates For Sports to run, but you may run better and with less pain if you do Pilates For Sports”

RANGE OF MOTION

If the range of motion in the shoulders, hips, knees or ankles are limited then it will increase the likelihood of pain and injury. The Pilates For Sports program works to develop an effective range of motion in the whole body thereby reducing your chance of pain and injury.

GOOD POSTURE

Poor posture will impact a runner's ability to generate power and maintain good form throughout their run. Pilates for Sports is designed to improve a runners posture, which will also improve their performance and help to reduce pain and injury.

REDUCED PAIN & INJURY

If your muscles around a joint are unbalanced and your core is weak, it means that some muscles will have to overwork to produce a movement. Over time this can lead to pain and even injury. Pilates For Sports will strengthen your core and help you to develop strong balanced muscles so that you can run efficiently with good form and with decreased chance of pain and injury.

GOOD FORM

Running is all about technique yet many of us don't really think about form - we just run.Pilates for Sport makes you aware of how you are currently running, teaches you how you should be running and then gives you the tools to improve your performance.
