It can be easy to assume that Pilates is just another fitness fad or be convinced that you must use expensive Pilates apparatus to receive the full benefits. But this isn’t the case. Today’s post is all about the benefits of mat Pilates — that’s right, no apparatus required! — so you can make better decisions about what healthy exercise is right for you.
Mat Pilates Doesn’t Require Expensive Equipment.
Fitness equipment can be exceptionally pricey, and the traditional Pilates apparatus is no different. Depending on the brand and piece, Pilates apparatus can cost anywhere from a few hundred dollars to a few thousand dollars. Plus, it will require a dedicated space in your home.
On the other hand, a Pilates mat is extremely affordable. In fact, even high end mats for personal use tend to cost $50 or less. Plus, mats are compact, once rolled up, and easy to store. Even better, you can take your mat with you pretty much anywhere, and that means you can do your Pilates workout anywhere, too. No excuse to skip your workout!
