Hot Pilates

Hot Pilates is a newly trending exercise that really helps you supercharge your work out and release bad toxins in your body. 

Pilates is a body conditioning routine that incorporates exercises that work the legs, butt, arms and especially the core to elongate muscles and increase flexibility. Pilates also incorporates different breathing techniques that can reduce stress.  

What are the benefits of a hot room? The heat increases our heart’s ability to work harder in order to cool the body down. An increased heart rate increases workout results because it helps burn more calories and boost metabolism. Being in a hot room will also help with acne and other skin irritations; it’s like a facial for your body. Just be sure to shower right after (& exfoliate!), otherwise the bad toxins that came out of the skin will go right back in!

The sensation of faint or dizziness during a workout is the body telling itself it is dehydrated. Therefore it is important to drink water before, during, and after a workout.

One of our favourite spots to do #HotPilates is in Mississauga at Holistic BodyWorx!
