Frequently Asked Questions
Is Pilates Right For Me?
Pilates is an intelligent and invigorating form of exercise for any age or skill level and is one of the fastest growing exercise programs in the world. Any healthy individual can do it and it works! It is a unique way of thinking about your body and how it moves; a way of exercising your muscles and your mind to reshape your body to feel stronger, longer and leaner! The Pilates method can be adapted for any fitness level. Clients with chronic pain, health issues or have recently become pregnant, should consult their physicians before beginning a new exercise regime.
How often should you practice Pilates?
At least two times a week allows you to progress at a consistent pace and see visible results. Joseph Pilates recommended doing it at least three times per week.
