TRAIN BY YOURSELF OR WITH FRIENDS AT A TIME THAT IS CONVENIENT
Personal training is beneficial to someone just starting off as well as experienced practitioners.
Pilates involves small, deep muscles that are sometimes difficult to access. With new pilates practitioners, your instructor will not only teach you the exercises, but also the fundamentals and principals and how to incorporate them into your practice. Your instructor will also analyze your movement patterns and help you learn how to apply the pilates technique to your specific needs, modifying exercises if needed. If your goal is to participate in group classes, private lessons will prepare you to keep up with the pace of the class while conditioning your body, mind and spirit.
Athletes have also found value in private lessons. Pilates looks at the whole body and works on centering, aligning, and finding balance in it’s parts. Training in a specific sport tends to over-use and over-stress target muscles and movement patterns which could lead to injury. Your instructor can help you identify the parts that are being over-used and strengthen the muscles needed for better balance of the whole body. Cubs pitcher Jake Arrieta credits pilates for his success. “What I noticed from Pilates last year was that I have much better control of my body,” Arrieta says. “I repeat my delivery consistently. My balance is much improved. And the mental and physical toughness Pilates requires to complete movements the correct way have directly helped me on the mound.” (Sports Illustrated, March 28th 2016, written by Tom Verducci)
Private sessions can also help people with injuries or chronic ailments. Although pilates works the whole body, we can often differentiate movement to meet client’s specific needs. By utilizing props and various apparatus in the studio we can modify exercises meeting the guidelines recommended by your medical or clinical professionals.
Three to six private lessons are recommended before joining group classes.
