Football 0 : Pilates 1

No footballer wants to admit he’s over the hill, but in this article from the Telegraph one Sunday footballer learned to accept his physical limitations.

Having been injured, he tried Pilates because he had heard that it was recommended both to prevent injury and to enhance performance “I thought I was hard, but here – off the pitch – I was struggling”.

He notes “After eight weeks I was noticeably stronger. My posture straightened and I found that I could run more efficiently. More importantly, I got through a practice football game without injury”.
