Dallas Pilates History

A long time ago in Germany, a sickly child who was suffering from asthma, rickets and rheumatic fever, dreamed of becoming physically stronger. He dedicated his entire life to this dream by studying body building and gymnastics. By the time he reached the age of 14, he already achieved a physique fit for posing in anatomical charts. The frail child later became an accomplished skier, diver, gymnast and boxer.

From his studies he determined that life-style, bad posture, and inefficient breathing were the causes of poor health. He then designed a series of exercises, training techniques and the equipment for this, complete with specifications required to teach them effectively. This man was Joseph H. Pilates.

Born in Germany in 1880, Joseph H. Pilates had a lifelong interest in body conditioning. During World War I, he interned as a nurse and developed exercise apparatus for immobilized patients by attaching springs to hospital beds. This paved the way to his method of body conditioning and specialized exercise apparatus, and the opening of his first Pilates Studio in New York, back in 1926.

Dallas Fitness Tip

The best Cardio workout that a person can look for is walking. Many people do not think of walking as a cardio workout, but it is, and a good one at that. Of course, leisurely walking is not going to get your heart rate up enough to qualify as a good, sound cardio workout but if you can walk fast enough to get your heart rate up and keep it there for an hour or so, you are doing yourself a lot of good.

Many people also like to combine strength with cardio and carry small hand weights on their walk. For most women, anywhere from 3 to 5 pound weights should suffice very well for this purpose, and this can help to really burn off those extra pounds that you might be looking to lose much faster as well.

Our Dallas personal training studio has all of the cardio equipment you need to get in your daily dose of walking. Why not come in today and see why our family owned and operated facility makes working out fun?
