What To Wear For Your Pilates Class

Pilates classes are all about fluid movements, so you'll want to wear something that allows you to move, stretch and contort your body into numerous positions!

So we've outlined a few pointers to put together the perfect workout wardrobe to ensure you hit our pilates studio dressed for the occasion.

THE HISTORY OF PILATES

Developed by Joseph Pilates, a German carpenter and gymnast, Pilates was invented to help injured dancers and soldiers get their fitness fix, without risk of further injury. Joseph Pilates said that physical and mental health were closely connected. In the 1920's he opened a Pilates studio in New York. It's been a hit at fitness clubs across the globe ever since!

TONE & TRANSFORM

Our pilates class can help transform the way your body looks, feels and moves.

Pilates done regularly, builds strength and tones the body, helping to create a sleek physique, tight thighs, lifted glutes and flatter abs.

Elongate Leg Muscles

There's a reason many models and dancers love pilates. The strength training aspect elongates your muscles, giving your legs a leaner, more slender look. 

Got Your Back

Lower-back pain is often caused by weak stomach muscles and bad posture. Our pilates class will work the core, and improve posture which in turn will help to relieve back pain.

Stress Relief

Regular pilates can help to decrease stress and conditions such as insomnia and anxiety.

Improve Focus

The breathing techniques used in our pilates class help to restore calm and improve your concentration.

Perfect Your Performance

Many gym members find that their body are misaligned due to the one-sided nature of certain sports e.g. using a tennis racket or swinging a golf club.

Our Pilates class will help to balance your body, developing muscular symmetry to align your posture, and reducing the risk of injury.

Pilates is a great fitness class for pregnant women, helping to align the spine and pelvis. Perfect for both post and pre-natal women who want to maintain their fitness, strengthen pelvic muscles or prepare the body for childbirth.
