What's the difference between classes and one-on-one?
There is a huge difference between classes and one-on-one instruction.
Classes are generalised unless I choose a theme to work on, for example, the back and abdominals.
There needs to be a range of exercises to suit all within the structured planning, as not everyone will need a specific area.
People who come to classes have a variety of muscular and bone issues, and they are usually in Pilates due to the support for pain management, and don't forget the social aspect as we have a lot of laughter.
Classes are fun, varied, and a relaxing environment, where you work at your own pace.
One-to-one training is specialised.
A posture assessment is carried out, and muscles are tested to find any imbalances. I then release the overactive muscles and stimulate the underactive muscles, and then a tailored programme is given to be carried out by the client.
The exercises given are a wide variety, ranging from Pilates to fitness to strength and conditioning, depending on their issues.
Once the client has improved or has become pain-free in the majority of cases, they can either stay for personal training, as many clients move on to making goals, or if this is not the case, they will filter into one of my perfectingpilates.com community classes in York, where they can maintain their results.
There is a video below to get you started in your practise, happy Pilates practise!
