20 minute Pilates workout to improve posture

Healthista have teamed up with David Kingsbury, founder of boutique gym OPUS to create a 3-part series of 20-minute Pilates workouts for strength, posture and tone 

If you are trying to develop strength while toning in your training and looking to improve balance, posture and flexibility all at the same time, then Pilates is a low impact workout that could be missing in your fitness programme. Founder of London gym, OPUS, David Kingsbury has put together three selective workouts that don’t require equipment and can be done at home.

POSTURE WORKOUT

Improving posture isn’t an easy task and that’s why Pilates-based exercises are often the most effective tools in your box. You often require no equipment and the exercises can be done anywhere with very little space and very little time commitment. The aim here is to stretch out the large muscles in the legs and back using movements that extend the legs and straighten and strengthen the back. Because we are enforcing stretches with these big muscle groups we can also expect to improve our flexibility.

As the founder of OPUSDavid Kingsbury‘s passion for inspiring health and wellbeing is at the forefront of his training approach. This desire is fuelled by his love of sports from a young age. An accomplished sportsman, David was selected to play rugby for the Bedford Blues Youth Academy at the age of 17 and represented his University in Cardiff. However, struck by injury, David‘s rugby career was cut short and surgery on his hips ended his rugby playing days. After completing his studies, David worked at one of London’s top Reformer Pilates studios clocking up more than 3,500 teaching hours before opening the doors to his own boutique studio in Notting Hill. Clients training with David can expect high energy, focused and challenging training sessions designed to push you every step of the way.
