Business owner Eric’s background in construction makes him aware of Man’s need to develop and maintain adequate strength and mobility. The Pilates Method was designed by a man with a sizeable component of the repertoire requiring increased upper body and abdominal strength – areas which men are naturally more suited to.


1. Build core strength: the core musculature consists of transverse abdominus (front and sides), multifudus (back), pelvic floor (base/floor) and diaphragm (top/ceiling).

2. Increase flexibility: lengthen hamstring and broaden shoulders.

3. Develop often neglected muscle groups: Some of your muscles dominate your daily movements and are stronger than others. Pilates will bring attention to those muscles that do not typically get hit.

4. Get a back bone: “If your spine is inflexibly stiff at age 30, you are old. If your spine is completely flexible at age 60, you are young.” Joseph Pilates

5. Have better sex: The base of the core musculature consists of  pelvic floor muscles. Men who practise pilates have increased control of this region.
