Lesley Ackland, our best-selling Pilates author, truly practises what she preaches- in her late 40s, she looks 20 years younger thanks to her Pilates body maintenance programme. Here she reveals her fitness secrets, including Pilates exercises and a nutrition plan, which will allow everyone to look and feel years younger.
Pilates is the perfect exercise regime for the over 50s due to its low-impact exercises that ensure joints remain flexible and general mobility is increased, and Lesley Ackland is the ideal advertisement for its benefits.
The routines in this book combine low-impact exercises with resistance training and weight-bearing exercise, which is crucial for building and maintaining bone density to ensure osteoporosis doesn’t set in after menopause.
The benefits of Pilates for more mature people include: • flexible joints and a strong back to take the years off you • toned and lengthened arms, shoulders, legs, abdominals and buttocks so your clothes hang beautifully whatever your size • improved suppleness and grace; improved bone density for long-term health benefits.
With a case study of one of Lesley’s mature clients who has used her routines to alleviate age-related health problems such as arthritis, postural difficulties and bone density problems, Pilates Over 50 is a comprehensive guide to looking and feeling younger.
