WHAT IS TENDINOPATHY?
Tendinopathy describes a diverse clinical syndrome that can involve any tendon and is associated with pain, swelling and decreased performance. Achilles tendinopathy is a not an inflammatory, but a degenerative condition. Achilles Tendinopathy and Pilates Reformer can help.
The Achilles tendon is known to be one of the most frequently injured tendons in the human body despite its strength.

What is ‘conditioning?
Conditioning training is defined as “the process of training to become physically fit by a regimen of exercise, diet, and rest” (Encyclopaedia Britannica, 2014). Furthermore you can change your physical appearance by utilising stress, not mental stress, but adaptive body stress. Putting your body under a certain amount of stress (overload) increases your physical capabilities. With a tailored exercise programme from CORE Kensington you can force the body to adapt and shape a great, toned body as well as increase your health and well-being.

How effective are Pilates abdominal exercises and training?
Whether the goal is preventive, injury recovery, rehabilitation, or performance enhancement good ‘‘core’’ fitness is a must, and the way your abdominal muscles are recruited is crucial. This is how the correct Pilates abdominal exercises can help improve your core fitness.
Gluteus medius exercises strength training on the Pilates reformer
Gluteus medius exercises for strength training and conditioning progression standing on a Pilates reformer. This contemporary exercise targets the gluteus medius and maximus bilaterally among many others, and challenges various muscle groups that support the hip, knee and ankle during athletic activities.
It is not intended as an early rehabilitation exercise, but as an advanced progression or conditioning exercise.
Why incorporate this type of exercise to your training regime?
This type of exercise requires muscle control of various muscle groups, including those of the deep abdominal wall.
Muscle strength deficits and activation timing patters in the lumbopelvic region is associated with low back pain. The gluteus medius muscle is often seen as the most important stabiliser of the pelvis, preventing excessive hip adduction during gait. Researchers have shown that these adduction forces can exceed magnitudes of three times body weight during mid stance.
The gluteus maximus plays an important role in human bipedal walking and load transfer through the hip joint; thus, weak gluteus muscles may result in loss of functional abilities. Muscle weakness, poor neuromuscular control, and unbalanced muscle activity in the lumbopelvic region are major factors related to lumbopelvic instability.

Pilates strength and conditioning studio
Max Ziegler, our strength and conditioning coach talks about his abilities, and how he has been successfully incorporated into our Pilates studio adding another dimension to our services, including Teens conditioning and Teens kickboxing.
Studies have found that physically active people were half as likely to be depressed as non-active people.
Exercise also boosts the neurotransmitter serotonin in the brain. Neurotransmitters are chemicals that send specific messages from one brain cell to another. Though only a small percentage of all serotonin is located in the brain, this neurotransmitter is thought to play a key role in keeping your mood calm.
Exercise helps use oxygen; it causes your body to burn stored fat and helps you maintain a normal, healthy weight.
Stronger muscles and bones
Exercise helps strengthen muscles and bones. You will actively burn more fat the more muscle you have. Your muscles are an active tissue that burns calories even whilst resting. Studies estimate that for each pound of muscle you add to your body, you will burn an additional 35-50 calories per day. So an extra five pounds of muscle will burn about 175-250 calories a day, or an extra pound of fat every 14-20 days.
You need good blood circulation to pump nutrients to your skin and remove waste products and toxins. The increased blood flow you receive through exercise also enhances collagen production, making your skin plumper and firmer.
