I find that our male clients end up starting their Pilates practice because their wife or significant other convinces them to try it. Once they get into the studio and start practicing Pilates, they realize they enjoy the work and can feel the difference in their body.
I was checking in with a wife of one of our new to Pilates male clients this morning and she mentioned something that got me thinking about how we teach Pilates. She said he mentioned,” It’s been a long time since I’ve been coached and I’m really enjoying the instruction and coaching.”
Coaching is one thing that really separates Pilates from any other fitness trend. We train Pilates Instructors to coach each body to learn exercises and movements that are very specific to their body. Pilates instructors are not just worried about giving you a workout, we train them to educate you on how to move your body more efficiently so you can get a better workout and move better throughout your life. We train Pilates instructors to give you movement tools that you can use in all the other movements you do outside of the Pilates studio setting.
If you’re someone that enjoys learning new things or maybe you were an athlete in your younger years (or still are) you might find that learning to practice Pilates is something you’ll really enjoy!
