Pilates has a lot of benefits, but it’s not the easiest discipline to learn. Practice makes perfect and eventually you will get the hang of it.
Most people learn the basics by going to class and having an instructor show them or help them through it. But what about those days when you’re running late or when you don’t find a suitable class schedule? Well, for those times, there’s the ‘Move’ tank top.
It’s a state-of-the-art top that’ll give you a mild electric shock whenever you make a mistake in Pilates. That’s the signal for you to go over it again. You’ll know you’ve done it right the second time around when you hear three buzzes. It also hooks up with an app, which you can run on your smartphone to check out your overall performance.
The design was presented at last month’s Wearable Technologies conference in San Francisco, where its designer Jennifer Darmour explains: “It’s not meant to replace an instructor, but it can certainly help you understand the technique even when the instructor isn’t around.” She has big plans for it too, as she aims to have similar clothing “that zap golfers, baseball pitchers and yoga lovers whenever they make a wrong move.”
