Pilates

"Pilates not only helps you physically & mentally ... it becomes you!"

Joy Feary - Pilates Master Teacher

How do I get started in Pilates?

The more you practice, the more you learn!

There are three ways to get started in Pilates at Body 2 Fit:

  • Private 1-2-1 sessions (The original method of teaching Pilates)
  • Small Group Sessions (3 – 6 people) OR
  • A Beginners course

Through all three methods you will learn the 6 Pilates principles;

  • Centring - Bringing your mental awareness to the centre of the body
  • Concentration - Maximum attention and maximum committment will produce maximum gain
  • Control - Every movement with every muscle
  • Precision - Awareness is key, maintaining alignment of the whole body throughout the movement
  • Breath - A fuller breath can produce far more with each exercise
  • Flow - Fluidity, ease and grace are applied to every exercise

This will amply prepare you to then challenge your mind and body further with our Improver and Advanced courses filled with progressively harder exercises and specialist Pilates Equipment.

Private 1-2-1 Sessions

Pilates was originally taught on a 1-2-1 basis and not surprisingly this form of tuition is where clients see results fast!

Sessions on a 1-2-1 basis are available for introducing ‘the basics’, for regular personal training, to improve physical and sporting performance or for specialist client groups like:

  • Professional Sports people
  • Pre- and Post-natal
  • Back pain sufferers
  • Dancers

If you seek a new challenge or would like to add Pilates to your existing training programme, then this is by far the best option for you.

Private 1-2-1 sessions guarantee an individually tailored Pilates experience enabling you to achieve your goals quicker than ever.

Private 1-2-1 sessions are available at your convenience 7 days a week.

Small Group Sessions

Small Group sessions offer the combination of more personal tuition whilst maintaining an atmosphere of a class environment.

Ideal for specialist groups (e.g. Pre- and Post-natal, elite sporting clubs, spinal rehab) or like-minded friends.

Beginners Course

The cheapest way to learn real Pilates with fully qualified Pilates teachers ...

An introduction to Pilates, typically over 6 weeks (1 hour a week), where you can expect an interactive session outlining the principles of the Pilates method and learn how to recruit the entire ‘Powerhouse’ or ‘Core’ muscles.

To register your interest or sign up for the next beginners course, please contact Body 2 Fit on (01642) 680 680 or email: info@body2fit.co.uk.

PLEASE NOTE: Your place on any course is not reserved until payment has been received. This helps Body 2 Fit keep class numbers to a minimum and thereby maintain the high quality of Pilates teaching we are reknowned for. 

“I have found Pilates very helpful in strengthening my back. I feel it’s one of the best forms of exercise I’ve ever done.”

A UK-wide CSP survey showed that 32% of people who have desk based work experience physical pain during working hours at least once a week. A further 65% reported back pain as the most common problem. Musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) such as back pain are one of the biggest causes of sickness absence on any given day and are estimated to cost society and employers around £7.4 billion a year!

With more and more of us having the option to work from home it's imperative to have the correct seating arrangement to reduce the risk of back pain and other associated aches and pains.
