This class involves a system of exercises using special apparatus, designed to improve physical strength, flexibility, posture, and enhance mental awareness.
Strengthens your core – pilates hits your core unlike anything else. Having a strong core means you can eliminate back pain and also make those abs pop!
Correct Imbalances – pilates incorporates exercises that isolate particular parts of your body. This will correct any imbalances you may have which could potentially cause injury otherwise.
Increased flexibility – pilates elongates and strengthens muscles, improving muscle elasticity and joint mobility. A body with balanced strength and flexibility is less likely to be injured.
Dr. Konrad Koczwara grew up in Chicago on the northwest side near Jefferson Park. He attended St. Patrick high school in his early years and later was accepted into Loyola University’s exercise science program. After completing his four-year degree he wanted to continue to follow his passion for health and wellness and decided to apply to Northwestern University’s Physical Therapy program. While in the process of attaining his doctorate he realized that there is a huge problem going on in the healthcare industry right now. The general public has a clear lack of knowledge on preventative medicine and exercise in regards to health. The solution in the medical field now is to use the “band-aid strategy”. This hurts people in the long term and does not “fix” their problems. These healthcare problems helped fuel his passion for using exercise as a preventative medicine. Dr. Koczwara’s long term goals are to change the way health insurance companies operate. Instead of paying for expensive medications, joint replacements, and other “band-aids” they should pay for preventative strategies throughout a person’s lifetime. These strategies would be implemented by degreed health professionals such as physical therapists, personal trainers, and exercise physiologists.
