Pilates

Pilates seems to be all the rage this millennium. The truth is this workout that focuses on core muscles was developed in World War I by Joseph Pilates.
When the stomach and back muscles are strong, this enables the extremities to work better. A weak core can prevent people from doing the activities they love – whether it’s an evening walk, a strenuous hike, schussing down ski slopes, or picking up children to hold and love.
Pilates work can be done on a mat or through resistance devices. The reformer is the most common piece of equipment.
If you are in Lake Tahoe, look up Rhonda Beckham at www.tahoetrainer.com for Pilates training.
