PILATES


Is a form of resistance training consisting of intense, controlled, low-impact movements. It was even created during World War II by a professional boxer (Joseph Pilates) to rehabilitate and condition soldiers! Pilates is not Yoga and at FONDUE is definitely not easy or relaxing.


Unlike other strength training where the focus is on explosive or cardiovascular strength, Pilates is focused on control. Using light weights and resistance bands the movements are precise and controlled, which requires a different type of strength AND flexibility.


The result is lean muscles + strong core + excellent range of motion. Which is why the world’s top professional athletes use Pilates in their training programs from LeBron James (basketball) and Cristiano Renaldo (soccer) to Tom Brady (American football) and Stephanie Gilmore (surfing).
