A 2006 study stated that 'Fat loss comes from burning sufficient number of calories. While cardio exercise tends to be an efficient calorie burner, Pilates appears to possess the potential to burn enough calories if done regularly, over the long haul and properly.' (Medicine and Science). Pilates for Weight Loss is a pioneering regime that will put you back in control of your weight. Pilates will change your shape and help you to achieve a long, lean silhouette, while also controlling your weight. This is the first book to create a programme to emphasise these benefits. Burn calories, flatten your stomach and gain a more defined waist. This title helps improve your posture; learn better breathing techniques; gain greater flexibility and core stability; and control stress and boost energy levels.
