In recent years many professional athletes have discovered the benefits of Pilates training to enhance sporting performance and to assist with injury prevention and recovery.
Pilates has an emphasis on breathing, correct spinal and pelvic alignment and smooth flowing movement allowing athletes to become familiar with their bodies functional mechanics. With Pilates training, athletes can, run faster, jump higher or even hit the ball further – and they do it without pain or injury to themselves.
In relation to sporting injuries, Pilates can assist in recovery, by rectifying any problems that may have contributed to the injury, such as postural imbalances, muscle tightness/weakness or problems relating to everyday activities such as walking. It is often said that Pilates gives athletes that extra “edge” over their competitors.
Pilates Insync caters to the specific needs of each individual athlete by carrying out a detailed fitness screening and preparing a customized program to improve performance. Many of our athletes have gone on to achieve personal bests after training at Pilates Insync.
Some of our high performance athletes
Sydney FC / Matildas
“Helen & Pilates Insync was recommended to me as part of my ACL rehab. Not only has it strengthened my knee, it has changed my whole body for the better. Pilates twice a week with Helen has improved my mobility, flexibility and overall strength throughout my whole body from top to bottom. I walk out of every session feeling stronger, refreshed and pleased with my progress thanks to Helen & Pilates Insync.”
“Seeing Helen regularly for the past 8 years has immensely helped my athletic performance! Through my private sessions with Helen I am acutely stronger, more flexible, and have a much better overall body awareness. Not only that, but I find my Pilates sessions help with mental clarity and are often the highlight of my day. Helen is hardworking, inventive and always manages to make our sessions fun and challenging! She is a massive part of my support team, and I even feel a part of her family. Love you Helen.”
National 100m Sprinter
“After a year with Helen I had my first individual run in a senior Australian team, in the 100m at the 2018 Commonwealth games. Track and field is about looking for one percent improvements and constantly challenging yourself and that’s what I get out of Helen every session. Pilates has always kept me honest. I never realised how much I had to work on until Helen broke down the way I moved and taught me how to move specifically and purposefully. Every week she takes me out of my comfort zone and deals a few blows to my ego, but that’s the kind of environment that I need to be amongst the world’s fastest men.”
Former Australian Cricket Captain
Steve Waugh Foundation
“I have been training at Pilates Insync for over five years after strong recommendations from my wife Lynette. My goal was to gain back strength and flexibility after playing sport. Many people have knowledge but Helen is a fantastic teacher. She has passion and is committed to improving the wellbeing of her clients. My Charity runs an annual six day 800km cycling event called “The Captains Ride”, of which Pilates Insync plays an integral role in my preparation for this event. Thanks Helen for all your help, hard work, expertise and most importantly passion.”
“In the time I have been training at Pilates Insync, I have definitely felt the difference in my overall performance. Helen’s knowledge and passion drives me to better myself. Looking forward to working with Helen and Pilates Insync in the future.”
Captain Sydney Kings
“Pilates has enabled me to stay strong and flexible on the court while helping in my recovery after playing. In addition, Helen make the sessions fun, creative and enjoyable.”
“Pilates Insync has made a difference to my on field performance. I am more agile and stronger through the core. Helen is definitely one of a kind.”
St George-Illawarra Dragons
“I started pre-season pilates with Helen at Pilates Insync after ongoing back problems last season that lead to back surgery. After a couple of months of pilates sessions twice a week, I achieved positive results in my general movement and flexibility. Mobility in my back has definitely improved with a significant reduction in pain. I will definitely continue with my pilates training throughout the NRL season as the results over such a short period have been fantastic.”
