Pilates for football

Footballers love Pilates because of its ability to improve co-ordination and flexibility whilst aiding recovery from injuries and preventing them.


Many footballers use weight training as part of their strengthening programme, however, excessive weight lifting can lead to muscle shortness and tightness which restricts the bodies range of movement. This is where Pilates comes in and should be used alongside weight training to create greater muscle length and balance strength with flexibility.

Hamstring tears are a common Footballer injury but a tailored pre and post match Pilates programme can help prevent this.

In essence; Pilates can really help Footballer performance and reduce the risk of injury.

Pilates can be beneficial to many other sportsmen and women including cycling, golf, football, running and horse riding. Join a local Pilates class to discover the benefits yourself.
