The video below is deliberately somewhat comical, but the message is NOT! Pilates exercises were designed to serve YOU, your body type, your current level of fitness and your strengths and your limitations. Because every BODY is different, every body will look slightly different doing each exercise, even if the exercise is done correctly! So why watch the person next to you and try to be this-er or that-er? It doesn't make sense!
Good or Bad Pain?
When it comes to exercise, many have often heard "no pain, no gain." Well, this is NOT entirely true! There is good pain and there is bad pain, and "good pain" is the only pain implied by this overly used phrase. We hope this video helps explain the difference between good and bad pain so you can learn to read your own body and make wise decisions for yourself, such as when you should stop and when you can keep going to "push yourself" safely.
