Twenty years of teaching, I've heard this a multitude of times.
"Pilates didn't work for me."
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.
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...
We have been thinking about this - what makes TYPP, TYPP? Why would you want to spend any time here? And what can we do to help you?
I think it's important I start with who we aren't and who we don't serve, as that will hopefully give you a flavour of who we are.
We're located in Kinning Park - it's a small private studio where we offer Pilates and Yoga services. Within the studio is home to the clinic - the clinic provides Podiatry, Sports/Remedial Therapy, Posture, Biomechanics analysis and complimentary services.
Our USP is we aim to fix broken bodies in a friendly professional, inclusive, relaxed non-judgmental space.
We aren't huge, and we don't have a bar, cafe or beautiful huge changing facilities if you want big fancy pants facilities - we aren't for you.
We don't have lots of gym people that may like to pose in the mirror, or flex their biceps at every opportunity, in fact, we have minimal mirrors in the studio - No instagram budding...
