CHAPTER 1

Why Pilates For Athletes?

The Pilates workout system is absolutely ESSENTIAL for athletes who want to perform at their highest physical and mental levels…and scare the living heck out of their rivals. Get on this bodyweight only Pilates program before your rival does!

I’ve worked with thousands of male and female athletes of all ages and fitness levels in my live classes, through online workouts, my bestselling book Power Yoga for Athletes and am always in awe at how powerfully and dramatically they improve their conditioning, strength, endurance, control, balance, flexibility and more. Pilates is the secret weapon YOU are not utilizing…until now. Now is YOUR time to reap the many benefits of Pilates and translate them to whichever sports and activities you love to do i.e.. running, football, basketball, golf, soccer, lacrosse, hockey, cycling, tennis, baseball, swimming, walking, gymnastics, dance, MMA, boxing and, well, pretty much ANY activity you can think of - Pilates will make you the best at your game while giving you tons of energy and vitality. From the professional athlete to the weekend warrior to someone who just wants to stay limber and healthy this book will work wonders.

I’ve already mentioned some (and there’s A LOT) of the benefits of Pilates but I find that lists are very attractive and easy to follow so here’s one for you.

Benefits of Pilates for Athletes:

complete mind/body workout.

builds a strong, balanced and flexible core.

gain long, lean and flexible muscles.

all bodyweight exercises so they may be done anywhere and anytime - at your convenience.

builds control, precision and fluidity in all your movements.

very easy on your joints.

improve how your body moves. More efficiency, grace and power in every move.

drastically improve sports performance and recovery. BINGO!

Some famous athletes who use Pilates to be at the top of their game include: Tiger Woods, Kobe Bryant, Kerry Walsh, Le-Bron James, Annika Sorenstam, David Duval, Steve Ballesteros, Jason Kidd, Curt Schilling, Natalie Coughlin, Carlo Colaiacovo, Ruben Brown and many professional teams.

The well earned accolades go on and on but the most profound benefit is when you actually DO the exercises because experience always trumps all the theory and discussion in the world. As Hamlet said, Words. Words. Words. I get bored of talking and yearn to get moving so plan for lots and lots of life changing movement!

How to use this book

This program fits into YOUR schedule. Practice the over 40 exercises (chapters 2 and 3) in this book and add them into your current workouts or put them together into full body workouts. Want to jump right into your chosen sport? Flip to chapter 5, find your sport and practice the 5 specific Pilates exercises recommended by me. It’s a great way to practice the ones that most benefit your sport and hit the ground (or mat) running!

What you need

This book focuses solely on mat Pilates so I recommend a workout/Pilates mat, comfortable clothes, a towel (you will sweat) and a space where people (or cars, animals etc) won’t interrupt. If you watch my videos you’ll see my dog, Addie, randomly come over and say hi…but I always welcome any visit from her :)

Turn the pages for over 40 total body Pilates exercises with color photos, detailed descriptions and fun little extra bits of info to help you in your practice. I’ve also included 5 complete and comprehensive Pilates for Athletes workout videos so we can workout together in real time and a Training Log to get you started today. This is your on the go training manual.
