Getting started with Pilates if you are a beginner 😁

What is the best way to get started with pilates if you are a beginner? 

The honest answer here is there isn't an exact answer to this question - different clients prefer and respond better to different methods. Some have injuries and may require more 1-1 attention, while others much prefer group sessions. It really does come down to you and what you need and what works best for you and how you learn. Why is it you want to take up Pilates, what is it you hope to achieve?

Think about those questions. What do you need us to help you with? Once you have that in your mind - take a few minutes to go through the different ways you can get started and whats best for you. 

1-1 Pilates 

This is always going to be the best option. Its all about you, your body your needs - but it does come with a price tag and that tag is not always realistic for everyone. 

Best of both worlds (Mix of 1-1 and Group)

This is a brilliant option, and exactly what Margaret has been doing for a...

TYPP opening back up, how we slowly get you back into sessions

Okay so yip COVID is here and we have had to make some huge changes in TYPP. Some f you reading this blog may feel sad that the way we used to run things at TYPP has been forced to change -but we hope you can begin to see. - things going forward might just be even better.

These last few months have been scary and crazy - I'm sure you have experienced that too in your own circumstances. Here in TYPP, we have been busy. Our thought was to try and use this time to completely refurb TYPP and refurb we have.

We knew we had to change things to get TYPP ready for opening - first on the list was the refurb of the Reformers. Rob from Categoryof who looks after our maintenance in the studio - has gone above and beyond our expectations. We needed the machines to be easily wipeable - this meant a full refurb. 

Every machine has been fully refurbished and is perfect and ready for when we can open. And we love the new colour

Along with the refurbished reformers, the full studio has been...

Pilates doesn’t work! 😠

Twenty years of teaching, I've heard this a multitude of times.

"Pilates didn't work for me."

Why is it Pilates just doesn’t work for some people?

Why is it some people don't seem to get results from Pilates? I've seen and personally worked with many thousands of clients that have had amazing results - yet there's this group of people that don't seem to get results, or hate the experience of Pilates.

I thought it was a good idea to reach out to other Pilates professionals all over the UK, as well as our team here in TYPP to help me answer this.

Here's what the Pilates experts around the UK say

Hannah Epps from www.pilatescommunity.co.uk sent over the list below. Reading it, a few of these stood out to me. Number 7, the goals of the client and has there been any 1-1? The serious difficulty for many is the cost associated with 1-1 - and let's face it, Pilates isn’t  cheap, especially 1-1 sessions - however, it's understanding the value. How we choose to spend money...

Why would I want to do Pilates on a one to one basis?

 

A question we get asked lots in the studio is, “Why would I want to do Pilates on a one to one basis when you've so many great group classes on the timetable and it’s so much more expensive for a one to one session?”

The truth is, that one to one sessions are very specific to you. Group classes aren't. That really is the massive difference. 

An example of the power of an individual specific approach is when Susan came into see me for her hip problem, she's a hockey player and was getting lots of issues with her hip that meant she was having to spend more time on the bench than the pitch. She needed to get back on the pitch and - by the time I saw her she was frustrated. Susan came in, had an individual approach to her training and the results... well why don't you take a moment to hear from Susan herself  

She got an individual plan and got back on the pitch! It's important I'm clear should - Susan did have to put in the work -...
