Fitness and Fasting
Pilates is an ideal way of exercising when fasting. It’s low impact and the controlled movements mean minimal bearing on joints.
When you lose weight, you need to keep toning the skin and body to ensure you look as good as you feel and when done correctly Pilates strengthens your core and tones your muscles.
