Pilates Concept is a Winning Concept

By Jake Levin

If you can't grasp Pilates right away, don't sweat it. You're hardly alone.

Sarah Cornett, who owns Pilates Concept in Fort Worth, Texas, cautioned all beginning practitioners of Pilates to not put pressure on themselves to "get it" right away. It can take some time to learn just how to navigate your body as it pertains to Pilates, Cornett said. But the rewards can be numerous, from both a physical and mental perspective.

"Pilates is amazing because it helps to create a lean, long, and toned figure," Cornett said.

Resistance methods are commonly used as a mean of practice in Pilates, with a requirement for no more than 10 to 15 reps. There's also mat Pilates, again maximizing a small number of reps, which involves a low impact workout that utilizes all planes of movement and incorporates mobility along with stability.

The strengthening of core muscles is what Pilates is most known for, but that's not to say other muscle groups are forgotten either. In fact, according to Cornett, smaller muscle groups that can be neglected in other workouts are strengthened through Pilates. Joint stabilizers are one example of this.

Cornett described the studio at Pilates Concept as "amazing," because everyone there is highly trained to work with individuals with whatever their issues may be between injuries or other restrictions.

"We pride ourselves on being able to accommodate anyone, whether they are a major league pitcher to a stroke patient who is working on walking," Cornett, who is also STOTT certified, said. "I love being able to help people meet their goals and strive beyond what they thought they were capable of. Pilates is low impact and grow with our clients so they can continue for the rest of their lives."

Pilates Concept can be visited online, at www.thepilatesconcept.com. It is located at 4201 Camp Bowie Blvd., Suite C, in Fort Worth.
