Unleash the Power of Pilates

From Tiger Woods to the Cleveland Indians to the toughest linebackers in the NFL, professional athletes and Hollywood celebrities are using Pilates to gain explosive strength, increase their range of motion, and build stamina and energy.

Now, men everywhere can reap the incredible benefits of Pilates with the Pilates for Men workout. Based on the groundbreaking IM=X (Integrated Movement eXercise) principles created by Elyse McNergney, it is a cross-conditioning system that adds resistance training and core stabilization to traditional Pilates moves.

Designed to make Pilates more athletic and fitness oriented, Pilates for Men is a solid program based on the science of muscle recruitment and fatigue that promotes functional training–thus, strengthening muscle synergies, reducing your risk of injury, and improving your game.

With Pilates for Men you will:

  • Build muscle and reduce body fat
  • Improve flexibility and gain core strength
  • Revitalize your energy and increase your range of motion

For all of you who want rock-hard abs without the back pain, McNergney, one of the top Pilates experts in the country, will show you how real men do Pilates.
