Pilates is a type of low-impact exercise that utilizes targeted movements to improve posture, increase strength and flexibility. A one-on-one class provided by a private instructor is an ideal way for first-timers or those graduating from physical therapy to get acclimated to these challenging and fulfilling workouts as it offers several benefits.
Group Pilates classes are wonderful, however the instructor must pay attention to all clients, which doesn’t allow them to focus in on clients that may require more individualized attention. A group setting can be challenging for new students as without individual attention they may develop poor habits. In a private session, your instructor will provide their full attention to your form and performance of movement and will identify and correct problematic habits. This will lead to improved performance and better results your Pilates practice.
Newcomers might feel shy, especially if they’re joining a class with a large group of seasoned exercisers. One-on-one instruction removes the intimidation, and you’ll have the opportunity to learn the routines at your own pace. You can also feel free to ask as many questions as you need, which isn’t always easy in a group setting.
If you’re striving towards a stronger, more flexible and healthier you, personalized attention usually expedites the process as you’ll receive tailored guidance to working your muscles properly and have a coach who’ll push your limits. The undivided attention from your instructor will help you quickly progress through exercises, allowing you to advance at a faster pace.
