ABSTRACT
The article discusses studies on Pilates and core training and explores possible solution for training the obese client. A background on the obesity epidemic is presented. Research found that engaging in high levels of physical activity assisted in maintaining weight loss, and Pilates could be viewed as a starting point for an active lifestyle. Another study concluded that classic Pilates exercises activate the transverse abdominals and internal obliques. The principles of Pilates which are being applied to the obese client are also outlined.
