At-Home Workout: Mix Up Your Exercise Routine With Online Pilates

Whether you’re stuck at home during lockdown or you simply prefer exercising in the privacy of your own space then online pilate classes are the perfect exercise to add to your at-home workout routine. Pilates is a low-impact series of exercises that are usually performed on a yoga mat. While the exercises tend to target your core muscles, you will quickly find that other areas of your body are strengthened as well.

With the benefits of pilates including strength, flexibility and a sense of wellbeing, everyone can benefit from incorporating the exercise into their weekly routine. And with just a yoga mat required, Pilates is an exercise that you can start practising anywhere. To help you get started, we’ve found some of the best online pilates classes and subscriptions that you start today.
