Romana’s Pilates is a globally operating network of certified Pilates instructors headquartered in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
Pilates is a lifestyle, a commitment to Self and a holistic approach to living a healthier and happier life through resistance training.
Pilates and its’ spring-based exercise apparatus was first introduced to Americans around 1925. The idea behind Pilates is as simple as it is unique. Joseph Pilates understood the importance of flexibility to improve muscle function meaning it’s designed to tone and strengthen all major muscle groups while simultaneously stretching the opposing muscles. Men do particularly well with Pilates for that reason. In fact, Pilates was created by a man for men!
Pilates is ideal for everyone; the corporate warrior, dancer, athlete, men and women of all ages and everyone in between.Our modern way of life is in part responsible for all sorts of muscle and joint related issues. And the less we move, the worse we feel. In many cases a tight muscle is a weak muscle. Pilates can help you not only to feel and look better but also help alleviate aches and pains associated with muscle imbalances, weakness or tightness.
In layman’s terms everything we do in Pilates incorporates a crunch of some kind. Many of our devotees report back to us that Pilates training has tightened up those illusive abs. Now if this isn’t a welcome side effect, I don’t know what would be.
