Did you know even Premiership footballers use Pilates?

Surprising I know. If you walked into a football changing room 15 years ago and asked a group of men to take part in a Pilates class you would have been laughed out of the room. But today in 2013 it is widely used and the benefits are outstanding.


Tottenham and Wales midfielder Gareth Bale is a fine example of someone who uses Pilates. He is now a world-beater and a supreme athlete. He has gained rapid acceleration, increased strength and outstanding balance.  Recently he has gained a recurring groin problem and he puts his quick recovery down the strength he has gained from Pilates


Another player who was taken part in the regime is Ryan Giggs who is now 39 years old and still playing in a top league. He credits the extension to his career down to Pilates – which is quite remarkable.


At Dene House Farm we have Pilates in Northumberland classes to suite all ages and genders. If you have any questions or queries please do get in touch.
