1.    Scott Pilates

Stott Pilates is considered one of the very few fitness programs that your body will be grateful for in a lifetime. It also serves as a complimentary workout for cardiovascular exercises and other sports depending on each individual goals. It can be performed on a mat, but special equipment is needed to fully benefit from the workout routine. The primary focus of this exercise is body awareness, core conditioning, breathing, and flexibility. Furthermore, Stott Pilates tones and strengthens your body without adding too much pressure to your joints or creating a bulky appearance.

2.    Power Pilates

Power Pilates is another type of workout exercise that builds muscle tone leading to a more controlled body movement while performing the exercises. The equipment will help emphasize the targeted areas to perform the movements correctly at everyone's own pace.

Pilates helps to develop lean muscles and flexibility through a conditioning regimen that emphasizes pelvic and spinal alignment. This allows a better control of breathing, enabling a good supply of oxygen through the muscles while strengthening the abdominal area developing a stronger overall core. Furthermore, Pilates also helps improve coordination and balance. The whole Pilates exercises system is very flexible and allows its different workout variations to progress from a novice stage to a pro stage level. Additionally, you can vary the intensity of Pilates exercises according to your physical conditions and specific needs.


No matter which type of Pilates exercise you choose, a number the benefits to be gained are enormous. Whether you are a beginner or a bona fide pro, you will always find a Pilates workout that best suits your level and individual needs.

3.    Yoga Pilates

Yoga Pilates is based on the practice of yoga. As with the other types of Pilates mentioned above, this one focuses on core strength and flexibility, emphasizing the attention to breathing at a more tranquil pace.

4. Reformer Pilates

You'd probably recognize the Pilates reformer even if you've never used one. It's a hulking machine that consists of a sliding carriage rigged with springs, bars, and straps. On this apparatus, you lie, kneel, stand and sit to create a balanced body and strong core — or "powerhouse," as creator Joseph Pilates called it.

The reformer may look like another fitness fad, but it's endured since the early 1900s, when Pilates first cobbled a version together for bedridden patients to exercise, despite their illnesses. The reformer kicks up the positives a Mat Pilates program provides, including better back health, flexibility, and body awareness. Regular reformer workouts offer other unique benefits, too.
