“Pilates and Weight Loss”
We love to do things that help us with weight loss. Every little bit counts. Adding weight to your workout will increase the amount of energy you expend on the exercise and that will increase calorie burning. Again, if you wish to discuss any aspect of your Pilates with us, just ask one of our instructors!
“How many classes should I do a week?”
At Pilates Performance, we recommend that you do a minimum of 2 classes a week. For those who don’t lead a very active life style, 3 classes a week would be recommended, and of course, one class is week is better than no classes at all!
“Should you choose Pilates on the Mat or the Reformer?”
While the benefits of doing Pilates on the Mat or the Reformer are essentially the same, eg. working from the deep intrinsic muscles (improving posture, joint congruency, alleviating joint/muscle pain) out to the larger muscles (slim firm abs, toned and sculped arms and legs, muscle definition, etc..), we recommend that you aim to do both the Mat and the Reformer classes. Joseph Pilates created equipment such as the Reformer to improve our performance on the Mat, which would then improve our quality of life and appearance, or improve our sport. It is best to use all Pilates options, not to pick and choose between Mat or Reformer, but to use all the Pilates otions-verity works best. If you are still unsure, the best thing is to try a Mat class and a Reformer class, and see how you feel and over time, add other Pilates options to enhance your results.
