Pilates is a fitness exercise routine that employs a precise range of motion. It is a strenuous routine that aids in the lengthening and strengthening of a variety of muscles throughout the body. It also aids in the development of flexibility and the identification of a central point in the body to control weight through balanced movements. Pilates exercises primarily target the abdominal muscles, lower back, hips, and buttocks. It also aids in the improvement of muscular control of the back and limbs, thereby balancing muscular strength on both sides of the body.
