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!
With its focus on alignment, technique and form, Pilates exercises are beneficial to any body, so please don't compete with anyone! Don't even compete with yourself, unreasonably! Use the modifications we show in our video and you will improve! Want more on this topic?
