What are the benefits of working out with Pilates apparatus?
Pilates apparatus consist of a wide array of equipment designed to accommodate clients at every ability level. It was developed by Joseph Pilates after he created the traditional mat exercises. According to Pilates Method Alliance, “Pilates equipment today is not much different than that of yesteryear. Spring tension, straps to hold feet or hands, supports for back, neck and shoulder are as important now as they were then. Because of the remarkable nature of the equipment to both challenge and support the body as it learns to move more efficiently, the inimitably designed pieces truly act as a complement to the challenging “matwork” exercises.”
How long does a session typically take?
Sessions are 60 minutes.
What should I wear for a Pilates session?
No shoes are required. Both women and men should wear comfortable gym clothing preferably that allows your instructor to see how you’re moving. Grippy socks preferred.
