At Fitness on Fox, we understand that exercise plays a pivotal role in maintaining a healthy lifestyle.

That's why we believe in the power of integrating Pilates with other forms of exercise to create a comprehensive and balanced fitness regimen.

Our mission is to help you discover the incredible benefits that arise from the synergy between Pilates and various exercise modalities.

Why combine Pilates and exercise?


The answer lies in the unique nature of Pilates itself.

Developed by Joseph Pilates in the early 20th century, this system of exercise focuses on core strength, flexibility, and mindful movement.

By incorporating Pilates principles into your existing workout routine, you'll experience a whole new level of fitness and body awareness.

Pilates enhances your overall physical performance by:

  1. Building Core Strength: Pilates targets the deep muscles of your core, including the abdominals, back, and pelvic floor.  A strong core provides a solid foundation for all types of exercises, allowing you to move efficiently and with stability.
  2. Improving Flexibility: Through controlled and precise movements, Pilates elongates and strengthens your muscles, promoting flexibility and preventing injuries.  Increased flexibility translates into improved range of motion, enabling you to excel in other athletic endeavours.
  3. Enhancing Posture and Alignment: Pilates places a strong emphasis on postural alignment, helping you develop a well-aligned and balanced body. By improving your posture, you'll reduce strain on your muscles and joints, allowing you to exercise with better form and reduced risk of injury.
  4. Boosting Mind-Body Connection: Unlike traditional exercise, Pilates prioritises mindful movement and breath control.  By focusing your attention on the present moment, you cultivate a heightened mind-body connection that not only enhances your exercise performance but also reduces stress and promotes mental well-being.

Imagine the possibilities when Pilates harmonizes with your favourite activities:

  • Pilates and Yoga: Unite the strength and flexibility of Pilates with the mindfulness and serenity of yoga to create a holistic mind-body experience. The synergy between these two practices deepens your body awareness and fosters a profound sense of calm.
  • Pilates and Strength Training: Incorporate Pilates into your strength training routine to improve stability, enhance muscle control, and prevent imbalances. Pilates complements weightlifting, powerlifting, and bodybuilding by targeting smaller, supportive muscles that may often be neglected.
  • Pilates and Cardiovascular Exercise: Pilates can be seamlessly combined with cardio workouts such as running, cycling, or dancing. By integrating Pilates, you'll develop better alignment, balance, and endurance, maximizing the effectiveness of your cardiovascular training.
  • Pilates and Sports Performance: Whether you're a golfer, tennis player, or runner, Pilates can significantly enhance your athletic performance. By refining your body mechanics, improving flexibility, and strengthening your core, you'll excel in your chosen sport and reduce the risk of injury.
