Pilates Max Class
PPS Classes • 26m
We offer an advanced level class with strength, plyometric and cardio component. The programme has been developed for our clients that have the ability to subconsciously activate their core and can also ‘single leg squat’ and ‘hop’ with control.
It will be a high rep, high tempo class which will work your whole body hard!
PPS MAX also harnesses the multiple “slings” of our body that we use in everyday movement. These myofascial “slings” connect the upper and lower limbs via the muscles (myo), and the tissue (fascia) that surrounds and connects the muscle to bone. These myofascial “slings” run in a line from the top of the body down the legs, and may be longitudinal, or oblique and they coordinate together to give us fluid and efficient movement from head to toe. The classes consequently train both the arm/s and leg/s simultaneously to enhance your performance.
PPS MAX will help us perform the high level activities we enjoy such as running, swimming and other sports more easily and help minimise effort and injury - “using less energy at a given speed is advantageous to performance.”
The classes utilise your own body weight, resistance bands, balls, steps to further challenge and build our neural and muscular system.
The classes aim to improve your everyday performance by increasing your:
Strength: the ability to move a load
Muscle size: the cross sectional area of the muscle.
Muscle endurance: to perform the activity repetitively and easily,
Power, speed and agility: the ability to move your own bodyweight quickly and deliberately, and to change direction with speed and accuracy.
Cardiovascular endurance: using both your arms and legs together for short bursts creates a high intensity component of the class that will increase your heart rate, pump the blood around your system and improve your stamina.
Fat loss: through the combination of resistance training and cardiovascular exercise
Range of movement: stretching the large muscle groups is a vital component to each class
