HOW OFTEN SHOULD I DO PILATES?
To see the best results you would want to be able to practice Pilates 2-3 times a week. That being said, it is better to come once a week than not to come at all. Any class you can attend is progress. Forward is forward, right? To see the best results and If money allows, it is best to incorporate a private session every 4-6 weeks in order to asses and fine tune your progress.
DO I NEED TO BE FLEXIBLE BEFORE I START PILATES?
No. Pilates is for EVERYbody. Come with an open mind and be ready to work, but be patient with your body.
I AM EXTREMELY FIT, CAN PILATES BENEFIT ME?
Absolutely. Pilates can challenge even the most elite athlete. Being fit can mean different things to different people. My job is to find your weakness and tightness and help you to create a stronger core and greater stability with which you will be better able to support your joints as you move. One of the biggest things you will notice from adding pilates to your fitness program is that you will stay injury free when you leave the studio to pursue your other passions. Pilates movements are designed to create suppleness and uniform development so your body performs effectively as whole whether you’re doing the dishes or running a marathon. Most of my clients leave sweaty and need a towel during their class.
I HAVE A SHOULDER/BACK/KNEE INJURY, CAN I DO PILATES?
Absolutely! If you are experiencing any of these issues I would highly recommend a private session before joining a group class. It is important that you know how to modify your exercises to suit your own personal needs while in a group setting so you stay safe and injury free.
MY GYM OFFERS PILATES CLASSES…WHAT MAKES YOUR STUDIO DIFFERENT?
I teach the purest and best form of Pilates and to put it honestly, not all Pilates classes or instructors are the same. My training is extensive and my passion is palpable.My goal is not to burn your abdominals for an hour or make your butt feel like it’s on fire, but rather to educate and empower you through movement. I truly believe that with patience the body will heal itself and you can be pain-free, but the journey is not fast paced. Be wary of anyone offering quick fixes or promotional pricing. If it seems too good to be true, it often is.
