Blackpool Pilates

At Village Gym Blackpool, our Pilates classes involve controlled, precise movements and breathing techniques for a full body workout, without the fast pace.  

Using your own bodyweight against gravity, you'll work the back, upper body muscles and core, to improve your strength, balance, posture and overall body tone.

Our Pilates class is more about flow than fast-paced fitness. The low impact techniques we use at Village Gym Blackpool make it ideal for all ages and abilities.

Many members who suffer from lower back pain or osteoporosis choose our pilates class, thanks to the gentle movements and low pressure on the joints. It's the quality, not the quantity of your moves that counts here. 

Our pilates class is a great option for anyone who loves the social side of a group workout, those trying to lose weight or members looking for a fun way to tone up.

What To Wear For Your Pilates Class

So, you've booked your Pilates class at Village Gym Blackpool. What to wear?

Pilates is about fluid, smooth movements, so you'll likely want to wear something that allows your body stretch and move freely.

We've put together a few tips on the perfect workout wardrobe to ensure you hit our Blackpool pilates studio dressed for success.

THE HISTORY OF PILATES

Pilates was invented by German carpenter and gymnast, Joseph Pilates. He wanted to help injured dancers and soldiers maintain their fitness levels, without risking further injury.

Joseph Pilates believed that physical and mental health were well connected. Something we live and breathe here at Village Gym Blackpool!

In the 1920's he opened a Pilates studio in New York. It's since become a staple fitness class in studios across the world!

TONING WITH PILATES

Our Blackpool pilates class is ideal for members who want to improve muscle tone, lose weight or scuplt a more lean figure. 

The exercises used in our Pilates class will target muscle groups individually, allowing you to strengthen and tone key areas such as the legs, glutes, abs and thighs.

It's not a high energy workout, so it takes time to transform your body through Pilates, though add a weekly Pilates class to your usual gym routine and over time you'll notice firmer thighs, tighter glutes and a flatter stomach.

 

TYPES OF PILATES EXERCISES

The hundred (while focussing on breathing, we'll target core strength to improve stability)

The roll up (a gentle, well-controlled move to stretch the spine and strengthen abs)

Leg circles (pilates movements to strengthen the hips and core muscles)

Rolling ball (this move will massage the spine and open up the back)

Series of 5 (a series of pilates moves designed to strengthen the core and back muscles)

Pilates For Older Adults

Thanks to the low impact nature of our Pilates class, it's no surprise that it's so popular with our Blackpool members over a certain age.

Our older members choose our Pilates class at Village Gym Blackpool as it's easy on the joints, simple to follow and great fun with friends.

Great for low back pain sufferers, older adults with joint paint or those looking for an effective way to stay fit without the need for a fast paced workout. 

Regularly attending our Pilates class in Blackpool will help to improve your posture, balance and reduce the risk of falling. 

Pilates For Weight Loss

Our Pilates classes are low intensity, so won't torch fat in the same way a high energy cardio class will. Though, they will help you to add strength and muscle mass, improving your body's ability to burn fat.

Add a Pilates class to your usual weight loss training programme to speed up your weight loss mission and tone up at the same time.

A more toned physique also helps the body to appear slimmer. So if weight loss is your goal, our Blackpool Pilates class can make a great addition to your usual gym routine.

Pilates For Back Pain

Tendency to hobble? Struggle to straighten up? If you're suffering from back pain, it can be hard to find a workout that works for you. Pilates has been heralded as one of the best exercises for back pain. A low impact, gentle stretching workout that will strengthen, tone and detoxify the body. 

Pilates will help to improve flexibility and align your spine, taking pressure off the back and helping to relieve pain.
