Who is Suitable for Pilates?
Almost anyone is suitable for Pilates. Pilates is a low impact exercise regime which makes it suitable and beneficial for most people, regardless of your level of fitness.
Pilates begins at a basic level of gaining the correct position and activating the deep core muscles. Once this is mastered, the exercises are progressed through different levels to challenge the core. Exercises use body weight, upper/lower limb movement and small pieces of equipment to increase core strength.
Pilates is suitable for the following client groups:
- Post injury
If you have an injury, Pilates can speed up your recovery by strengthening specific muscle groups with pain free, low impact exercises.
- Chronic pain patients
Pilates is an excellent way for chronic pain patients to manage their pain and fatigue levels. It’s great method of relaxation too.
- Sporting individuals
For those into sports, Pilates can have a significant impact on performance by developing a strong central core to enhance speed, accuracy and power of movement.
- Pre and post pregnancy
Prepare your body pre-birth and speed up recovery post-birth by book a private session with one of our specially trained physiotherapists. Private sessions can take place on a 1:1, 2:1 or 3:1 basis, so you can bring a friend or 2 if you wish!
For the older population Pilates is a great way to exercise because it develops muscle strength in a low impact way which can be adapted to suit individual needs.
