The spring resistance machinery designed by Joseph Pilates, the Reformer, Cadillac and Wunda Chair, along with the Barrels and Mat work, present a variety of exercised options to stretch, strengthen and condition the body.
Practicing Pilates on a regular basis quickly improves muscle flexibility and joint stability, offering a new level of strength and body control, giving you the edge on the competition. And with a more flexible and stronger body, the risk of sporting injuries are vastly reduced.

- Increase flexibility to achieve mobility and torso rotation.
- Strengthen core to improve balance and aid a steady swing.
- Stabilise pelvis and spine to reduce risk of injury and prolong golfing career.
- Strengthen shoulder girdle to maximise propulsion of swing.
- Address imbalance created by the one sided nature of the game.

- Increase propulsion by strengthening the hamstrings,
quadriceps, buttocks and calves.
- Reduce lower back pain, (running can create compression
in the lumbar spine). Re-align pelvis by strengthening

flexibility in lateral flexion and strengthening obliques.
- Prolonged sitting and additional load on the flexed spine
in the pull-back phase of the stroke, can place undue
pressure on the lower back. Strengthen the lower
abdomen to power up stroke and reduce injury.
- Increase propulsion by strengthening quadriceps, hamstrings and calf muscles to accommodate a stronger push back
- Reduce shoulder and neck tension by stabilising the shoulder girdle
- Increase propulsion and stability in batting and bowling motion by strengthening shoulder girdle.
- The continuous extension and flexion of the
spine in the bowling action can place undue pressure on the discs of
the lower back. Strengthen core and stabilise pelvis to
reduce chance of injury.
- Maximise propulsion in the run up by strengthening
the hamstrings, quadriceps, calves and gluteals.
- Aid wide catches in fielding, by improving flexibility.
- Address imbalances created by the one sided nature of
