The idea behind Sculpt Club, created by Pilate’s instructor Julia van der Drift, was to create a supportive community that felt confident and comfortable with their bodies, regardless of fitness levels.
Besides getting one step closer to your dream body, says Julia, this low-impact workout does greater magic than just promoting weight loss and body toning. Pilates is known to be an effective form of physiotherapy for those suffering from overall physical performance and back-related pain. Poor posture and a lack of muscular support are common causes of prolonged pain on the upper body, and Pilates incorporates core exercises, stretches, and controlled movements to build resilience (a win win situation for all!).
