So you may have only heard about how magical reformer pilates is to get that tight core but have no idea how to even begin! Don’t worry! That’s what we’re here for. If you’re recovering from low back pain after pregnancy or because of an injury, this is the safest form of core strengthening exercise. There’s no jumping up on boxes or sweating your guts out. It’s nice and slow and easy on your joints. But don’t make the mistake of thinking it’s easy. It’s anything but. It’ll really make you feel like you already have a 6 pack by the end of the session. And especially you ladies who say “oh I worked out so hard in the gym I peed my pants!”, this will also tighten up your pelvic floor muscles. No more leakage! No more accidents while laughing.
Here are some of the benefits of Reformer Pilates:
Step 1: Initial assessment with our Physiotherapist or Exercise Physiologist to find out what your core muscle strength is. Even huge body builders are sometimes surprised how weak their core is. According to Australian Physiotherapy Association “Physiotherapists are skilled in designing exercise programs to target deficiencies in muscles and joints. These clinical exercises help the body move better “.
Instead of throwing you in the deep end , we go through a thorough assessment to understand your goals. We then check your muscle strength and make sure we put you in the right class. We never have more than 4 to 6 people in the pilates classes, hence we are able to provide individual attention.
Step 2: Do 2 or 3 one on one sessions to learn the basics of reformer pilates and get used to the reformers.
Step 3: Progress to a group class and let’s begin!
