Professional Athletes are discovering the rejuvenating effects that Pilates offers. Read about Jake Arrietta and how he uses Pilates as a way to redirect his career back to success.
“I train with Pilates in the offseason and in-season on a daily basis. Pilates gets my body into a position where I’m activated, I’m loose and I’m ready to go as soon as I step out onto the field. It aids my warm-up process; it gets me much more ready for the day of activity than any other type of warm-up ever has. And the amount of core strength that I’ve built with Pilates and hamstring strength and hip mobility and mobility in my shoulders and my spine — those are all things that directly correlate with what I have to do on the field.

I think at first a lot of guys were skeptical. But as time has gone by, the amount of guys that are taking part in either a morning routine of Pilates or an afternoon session is pretty high. I’d say there’s been 15-20 guys that are actively using Pilates. And they are all seeing the added benefit.” Read more ESPN interview….
