Pilates is normally done in groups and at Wellbeing Fitness the groups are always small so you get lots of individual attention. But nothing can beat a one-to-one session where you get the FULL attention of the Pilates instructor for the WHOLE of the time. It is simply the best way to learn the techniques, to achieve results and begin to make beneficial changes in your body without the risk of injury.
If you do not suffer from any major health condition (apart from odd aches and pains which we all get) but wish to improve your core strength and flexibility, and wish to be healthier and fitter all round, then Pilates is right for you. It is low impact, kind on the joints and one of the most popular forms of exercise in the country today. For more information read below.
MORE ABOUT ONE-TO-ONE PILATES
Pilates, which was invented by Joseph Pilates over a hundred years ago, is now one of the most successful exercise systems in Britain today, followed by thousands of people who can all testify to the many benefits it brings. Joseph himself was originally a sickly child suffering from asthma, rickets and rheumatic fever and he dedicated his life to devising the system which would not only improve his own physical health but by passing his system onto others, it enabled them to do the same.
Pilates focuses on building your body’s core strength and improving posture via a series of low-repetition, low-impact stretching and conditioning exercises. It targets your back, abdominal and pelvic muscles. It also helps to tone those muscles whilst increasing flexibility and agility. Many people testify to the fact that it has helped tremendously in weight loss as well as all round physical fitness and well-being.
Our fully-trained Pilates instructors (who are also fully qualified personal trainers and massage therapists) will take you through sessions that are designed to focus on specific individual areas whilst integrating exercises that help to re-educate the whole body. This means it can begin to be restored to optimum muscular and skeletal function.
At Wellbeing Fitness we believe that Pilates not only provides a complete body work-out (and you’ll start to feel muscles that you didn’t even know you had!) but it also helps you to develop an awareness of how your body works. Pilates is the type of exercise that is beneficial to you regardless of your age or fitness level.
Each of the One-to-One Pilates sessions lasts 60 minutes and to get the best out of them (as well as the cheapest price) we would recommend that you have a package of ten sessions. However, if you are doing Pilates classes or courses, a single one-to-one session might be beneficial to work on specific things that you find difficult. Or if you are completely new and have never tried it before a couple of one-to-one sessions might be helpful to get you up and running.

READ BELOW TO LEARN ABOUT SOME MORE OF THE REMARKABLE BENEFITS THAT PILATES CAN BRING.
The Benefits of Pilates: It’s Amazing for Your Abs
Pilates targets your core unlike any other workout. In fact, according to a Medicine & Science in Sports & Exercise study, after completing 36 weeks of Pilates training, women strengthened their rectus abdominis (the muscle responsible for six-packs) by an average of 21 percent, while eliminating muscle imbalances between the right and left sides of their cores.
The Benefits of Pilates: It’s Easy on Your Joints
Pilates’ slow and controlled movements puts minimal impact on your joints. This is particularly important for people over 40 and prevents problems developing in later life
The Benefits of Pilates: It Improves Your Focus
Pilates involves focusing on 1) your breath, 2) your body, and 3) how they move together. It takes a lot of concentration but doing it regularly makes it a meditation practice. You learn to control the mind’s ceaseless chatter and in doing so acquire the ability to get rid of stress
The Benefits of Pilates: It Improves Your Sports Performance
When you start focusing on your core, you realize that all of your muscles are connected through your core. With a stronger core, you can run faster, hit a tennis ball harder, a golf ball further, and overall, the rest of your workouts improve. (It’s no secret that professional athletes spend a lot of time on core training). Plus, by working one-to-one with a Pilates instructor, you can learn moves that mimic and improve performance in the sport of your choice.
The Benefits of Pilates: It Makes You More Flexible
We are always hearing people say, ‘I’ve never been flexible, I can’t do Pilates.’ But that’s why they should be doing it. In one Brazilian study, when a group of participants (without any prior Pilates experience) performed 20 Pilates sessions, they became 19.1 percent more flexible. When you’re tight, you shorten your muscle and limit your body’s range of motion. At best, that can hurt your exercise performance. At worst, it can cause injury.
The Benefits of Pilates: It Boosts Your Brainpower
Joseph Pilates called his workout method “the thinking man’s exercise.” It could very well be. When Chinese researchers measured changes in brain activity after 10 weeks of Pilates training, they found an increase in the brain’s alpha peak power, which is related to neural network activity, memory performance, and other cognitive functions. Researchers believe Pilates may even hold potential as a treatment option for people with brain-degenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s.
