Pilates is renowned for helping people to achieve lean and toned bodies although of course any weight loss depends predominantly on two factors: how many calories you take in and how many calories you burn during exercise or movement.

An exercise doesn’t have to make you sweat profusely in order to burn calories, it simply has to help create muscle. An activity such as Pilates is a great way to increase your calorie-burning potential because it helps to create lean muscle mass without adding bulk to your body and most people know that muscle burns more calories than fat.

Pilates also boosts self-esteem and an awareness of your lifestyle, both of which are associated with weight loss.
