6 reasons to add weights to your Pilates exercises
Updated: Jun 14
1. STRENGTH: The primary benefit to adding weights to Pilates exercises is to add tone and strength to all muscle groups particularly core muscles including back, stomach, shoulders & chest.
The great thing about Pilates with weights is you create strength without bulk.
All our exercises can be adapted to suit your individual needs - using smaller weights if necessary.
We use either small dumbells or weighted balls around 1-2 kg in order to ensure correct alignment. Smaller weights in Pilates allow you to control & stabilise your joints’ range of movement.
