Pilates is a low-impact, core-intensive workout with a deep focus on body alignment that works to strengthen, lengthen, and tone the whole body. Among the many benefits of pilates is increased core strength, improved postural alignment, greater flexibility and muscle endurance, and improved balance.
While there are some characteristics shared by both yoga and pilates such as an emphasis on breathing, body alignment and awareness, balance and flexibility, pilates and yoga are two distinct exercise methodologies with two different sets of goals. Whereas yoga has a meditative element that looks to improve your spiritual and mental health, relieve stress and increase relaxation and flexibility, pilates emphasises core strength and overall strengthening, lengthening and toning of the body.
Pilates is a movement modality that works to strengthen, lengthen and tone the body. As a movement modality, it can assist in weight loss, especially when used in conjunction with an overall wellness plan that includes cardiovascular activity and well-balanced nutrition.
EveryBODY is different but generally speaking, if you consistently practice pilates 2-3 times per week, in 4 weeks you will FEEL a difference, by 8 weeks you will SEE it, and in 12 weeks you will have a completely different body.
Yes, you are more than welcome to jump into a class, even if you have never done pilates before. Because our classes are so small, our instructors are able to make modifications for all levels of practice. However, we do always recommend starting with our introductory offer of 3 private sessions, especially if you are just beginning your fitness journey or returning to it after a long hiatus, if you are currently pregnant, or if you have any health issues that may require modifications.
We recommend wearing workout clothes, like leggings and a tee/tank. Stick to more form-fitting clothing and avoid loose, baggy clothing. This allows our instructors to more readily monitor your alignment and muscle engagement. And there is always a chance that loose, baggy clothing could get caught on the equipment!
At Pump, we know that every BODY is unique. We’ll work with you to create a membership package that’s as unique as you are. You can create a membership-based on one service or a combination of services. Pricing varies depending on the services selected.
