Private Pilates Lessons Help Beginners Grow

Your BFF has talked you into trying Pilates. Now what? She has talked about using mats and balls—sounds like yoga, kind of—and that thing she loves, called a Pilates Reformer, which, in your mind’s eye, resembles an ancient torture device full of cables and springs!

But, WOW, she sure looks great since she’s started doing this Pilates thing: longer, leaner, and taller! You’re curious, really curious, but a little apprehensive, too.

And then your best friend says, “Why don’t you take a private pilates lesson first? Before you join me in class!”

Private Pilates classes are wonderful for beginners. We will explain why.

Benefits of taking a Private Pilates Class.. Or Two.

Pilates was once the domain of lithe ballerinas but no longer. Pilates can help anyone develop a stronger, leaner, more functional core as well as more supple joints. Young or old, healthy, or a little worn out, anyone can have a Pilates program customized to their particular physique or health needs.

One of the best ways to become involved with Pilates is through private Pilates classes. A private class with a PMA Certified Pilates Instructor will give you the privacy and more importantly, the time, for a Pilates instructor to listen to your needs and concerns. Private Pilates classes will also give the instructor time to evaluate your fitness level and develop a program tailored to your particular needs.

A certified Pilates instructor is someone who not only knows Pilates but also is a compassionate teacher who wants to see you succeed and develop to your fullest by using Pilates Method training. Personal attention those first few visits will ensure that you will understand proper forms and the proper use of the recommended Pilates equipment, whether it be mat, Pilates Reformer, or ball training.
