In September 2019, the Government updated its guidelines for exercise to emphasise the importance of building strength and balance, as well as focusing on cardiovascular exercise.
The overall message remains the same: any activity is better than none, and more is better still.
Under the new guidelines, adults are advised to undertake strength-based exercise at least 2 days a week. Pilates meets the criteria for strength-based exercise and can help delay the natural decline in muscle mass and bone density as we age. The new guidelines cover all ages from early-childhood onwards.
