@WomenSportsWeek Special - Pilates & Football - by Tori Norris, A Balanced Life
In @WomenSportsWeek - @WSNet will be focusing on three things - CORE conditioning (with 'A Balanced Life' consultancy) - becuase CORE is key for ALL Womens/girls sports. Employment in SPORT/FITNess & Event/Ticketing promotion. Here's today's 'CORE' story from A Balanced Life
You might think Pilates fits more with footballer’s WAGs (wives and girlfriends) more than the actual players but, as with many professional athletes, footballers are increasingly turning to Pilates to stay at the top of their game. Spurs do it as part of their team training regime, Steven Gerrard does it, David Beckham and Ryan Giggs owed their long careers at the top to it. So, just why is Pilates a hit with footballers?
Pilates can help footballers, both professional and social players, improve co-ordination, mobility and flexibility all of which are essential to be at their best for the season. Pilates can also help footballers recover from, and help prevent, injuries that could otherwise see them on the bench for weeks at a time. MORE from A Balanced Life . . .
