Gain the competitive edge with the innovative training methods in Pilates and Conditioning for Athletes. This science-based, multidimensional approach to athletic conditioning helps you build a strong and flexible foundation by infusing Pilates into training, resulting in complete training programs that tap into the seven pillars of training needed for success:
  • Agility
  • Flexibility
  • Mobility
  • Power
  • Speed
  • Stability
  • Strength
Begin with proven assessment protocols that have helped elite and professional athletes reach the pinnacle of their careers and remain there. Evaluate your movement patterns, range of motion, strength base, flexibility, and core strength to determine your baseline and guide your selection of exercises and sequences to turn weaknesses into strengths.
Then follow detailed instructions for 124 Pilates mat and traditional conditioning exercises to strengthen your core, improve your posture, increase flexibility, and correct muscle imbalances. You will learn the following:
  • Breathing exercises to increase lung capacity and reduce stress
  • Stretching routines to open your hips, hamstrings, and back
  • Joint articulation to improve range of motion and balance
  • Resistance training for strength and power
  • Medicine ball training for working in diagonal and transverse planes
  • A dynamic warm-up series to begin each training session
