Turning up the heat can take your workout to a whole new level – and this is definitely the case for Pilates. Hot Pilates is a full body workout with a killer core sequence combined with HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) in a room ramped up to 34 degrees!
IT HELPS BUILD FOCUS AND CONCENTRATION
A hot room adds intensity. When you’re lunging and squatting with sweat dripping from your face, all you may want to do is stop, but you hone in on your will power, focus, and determination.
Hot Pilates helps build self-belief in what you are capable of achieving and creates a positive mindset that you can take out and apply in your daily life.
IT HELPS TO MAINTAIN GLOWING SKIN
When you sweat, you expel dirt and grime from your pores. And sweat also helps to keep skin moist and hydrated. This can be especially helpful in winter when we cover up and use a lot of artificial heating. This means your skin is less likely to experience breakouts or dryness and you’ll develop a natural glow only given by healthy and happy skin.
HEAT IS THERAPEUTIC
Heat therapy has been used for centuries. When the body is heated, more blood vessels dilate, which promotes blood flow. Increased blood flow can aid in pain relief. Toxins can be flushed out of injured areas of the body allowing for better range of movement. It’s especially beneficial for lower back pain, muscle aches and pains.
Hot Pilates warms your muscles up from the get go, it increases your flexibility and also reduces the risk of injury as the muscle is already well warmed up.
HOT PILATES INCORPORATES HIIT TRAINING INTO YOUR SCHEDULE
Hot Pilates combines a killer core workout with HIIT and weight training. High Intensity Interval Training is when you combine high intensity cardio movements with recovery periods, alternating in small bursts of time. Hot Pilates causes happy endorphins to rush through the body post class, causing a positive mindset that feeling good inside and out creates.
