BODY CONFIDENCE WITH PILATES Studio Pilates has become increasingly popular. Once you get to grips with these initially baffling machines - the Cadillac, the Reformer, the Wunda Chair, the Orbit and Ladder Barre - they will become your best friends. They provide resistance, or assistance, through a system of springs and levers designed to facilitate each move. A person weighing 120lbs would burn up to 360 calories and someone at 150lbs may burn up to 430 calories. Pilates makes you better, faster, stronger and more resilient by improving flexibility and strengthening your core, and it also helps protect you from injury.


myPilates is an independent Pilates studio in Putney. The studio is the creation of Peter Pallai, a two-time Olympian, certified Studio Pilates practitioner (trained at the Polestar academy), and lululemon athletica ambassador.

BEST WAY TO BURN FAT Gyms are re-energising the fat loss industry and paving the way for a healthier, more active lifestyle. Latest research shows that ten minutes of gym-style circuit training burns as many calories as a half an hour jog while also increasing muscle definition. What’s more, the number of calories burnt at rest has been shown to remain elevated for 48 hours post exercise. Circuit training involves a number of stations in which one completes an exercise at each site. A short transition between stations and longer, more intense work intervals provides a cardiovascular stimulus that keeps the heart rate raised and therefore increased metabolic activity inside the body. This increase in metabolic activity is what creates the high level of calories being burned per minute.
