Pilates in New Orleans

Thinking about Pilates?  Try Bootcamp Instead!

While Pilates was invented in 1912 by Joseph Pilates, bootcamp classes are a relatively new fitness phenomenon.  Pilates has many muscle building benefits, but boot camp classes have muscle building and cardio benefits and will produce results faster.

With Pilates New Orleans exercisers face a long, dull series of core strengthening exercises working the abdominal muscles.  Pilates is said to build long lean muscle without bulk…. which is a bunch of crap!..

Anyone with the basic knowledge of anatomy will be able to tell you that muscle length and thickness is determined at birth by ones insertions and origins of your muscles. This is something that is passed on my our genetics and No style of training can change the length of our muscles!

On the other hand, boot camp classes are never boring.  The time goes by very quickly when you’re moving quickly from one exercise to the next, keeping your heart rate up.  Boot camp workouts give an aerobic and muscle toning workout at the same time.  Since most people having a limited amount of time to exercise, you get more done in a bootcamp workout.

When you participate in a bootcamp workout class you’re moving quickly, working your upper and lower body at the same time and burning up to 600 calories an hour. While Pilates can build a strong core and muscle, it doesn’t compare in calorie burning.

Bootcamp workout classes build confidence, no matter what you’re fitness level.  It’s exhilarating to complete a class and even though you may be tired and sore, you feel energized for the rest of your day.  You can surprise yourself with your own strength and abilities.

The popularity of Pilates New Orleans has suffered in these tough economic times because it’s perceived as expensive.  In fact many health clubs have given up offering Pilates and now have classes that are a hybrid of ballet, yoga & Pilates.

Gyms across the country are adding bootcamp style workouts classes for their members because it works.  Traditional New Orleans Pilates is falling by the wayside as we’re all more time pressed.  People are looking to bootcamp classes to jumpstart their fitness routines and build their strength, endurance and challenge themselves.
