Pilates Classes in Medway, Kent. Call 01634 817242
Pilates is a type of exersise where the ‘core’ spinal muscles are strengthened, which in turn improves posture and reduces the risk of injury whilst creating a perfectly strong and aligned body.
Many have heard of Pilates, or tried Pilates exercise in a large group environment similar to most yoga classes or group fitness classes, however this is only a small part of what Pilates actually offers and here there is risk of performing the exercises incorrectly which can do more harm than good.
Today, a large number of the population suffer with poor posture, muscle imbalances and back problems and therefore should be careful when taking part in generic exercise classes.
Have you tried to teach yourself Pilates with a DVD or join a large class and not got anywhere?
Our clinic offers Pilates training taught one to one so that the Pilates instructor can develop a workout tailored to the client’s needs and give individual attention, when both you and your instructor are happy you can then move on to our small group classes.
For individuals with serious injuries or limitations, Pilates should only be taught under one to one instruction where close attention can be given at all times.
People come to Pilates classes with different goals, many of our clients come to increase fitness and tone their bodies, some to address back pain and injuries, some to improve their core stability for specific sports (tennis, golf, squash to name a few), others to counterbalance a stressful lifestyle, or to improve their posture and flexibility.
One of the greatest benefits of Pilates training is that it is suitable for everyone, for all body types and fitness levels from the highest performing athlete to individuals with a variety of health problems. It is beneficial to men and women, children, the elderly, and almost essential for pre and post pregnancy.
