What Is IM=X® Pilates?, Manhattan, New York

Exercise is a crucial aspect of health, especially if you’re pregnant. Back pain from added pressure on the spine can develop from poor posture and weak muscles. If traditional workouts or stretches aren’t allowing you to get a full workout, explore IM=X® Pilates. This unique take on a popular workout regimen can be the perfect complement to seeing a chiropractor during pregnancy.

A Guide to IM=X Pilates

What Is It?

IM=X Pilates is a reinvented form of traditional Pilates. IM=X stands for “Integrated Movement Xercize.” Workouts include choreographed movements and positions that address specific areas of the body and multiple muscle groups at the same time.

What Are the Benefits?

IM=X Pilates is a highly accessible exercise program that can suit pregnant women. Many studios offer introductory courses to ease newcomers into the program. IM=X Pilates builds strong core muscles—a great benefit for spine stabilization during the first trimester of pregnancy. This, along with seeing a chiropractor during pregnancy, can reduce back pain and other issues throughout the second and third trimesters.

Exercise has a number of benefits during pregnancy. It can alleviate back pain, constipation, and bloating. Women will have improved posture and muscular endurance, and you may find that reduced discomfort will help you sleep better.
