Frequently Asked Questions

Introduction

Pilates is an effective, low-impact workout that strengthens the body in many ways. Individuals who use Pilates regularly will become more toned and muscular, especially in the core muscles of the abdomen, hips, buttocks, and lower back. Pilates also helps improve the stabilization of the spine.

As Pilates is so focused on small movements, it's vital that every action is precise and engages the right muscles. This is why it's essential to have an instructor. Some people try to teach themselves Pilates or watch videos, but nothing can beat the in-person adjustments learned in a class or a private lesson.

What is Pilates?

Pilates is a form of low-impact exercise that focuses on improving muscle strength and flexibility. This type of exercise uses the body's natural weight or may incorporate medicine balls, ropes, machines, and weights. Pilates focuses on improving the balance, posture, and strength of the body.

What does Pilates do?

Pilates helps individuals strengthen and lengthen their major muscles. Focusing on the major muscles has the added benefit of improving posture, balance, and flexibility. While the ultimate goal is strengthening the core, Pilates is considered a full-body exercise. Many Pilates movements look simple, but the challenge comes from the precision and control of the action.

What is the difference between yoga and Pilates?

Yoga and Pilates are often compared as they're both low-impact, focus on the core, and strengthen the muscles. However, the two differ in two key aspects. Yoga typically incorporates breathing and meditation into each movement. Pilates, on the other hand, focuses on just the movement itself.

Is Pilates good for you?

Pilates is good for the body in various ways:

  • It's a form of exercise, and any kind of movement is good for a person.
  • It's low-impact, which means it's suitable for people with injuries.
  • It helps strengthen and balance the body, which can help people improve in their other physical activities.

Does Pilates build muscle?

Yes, Pilates is a strength-training form of exercise. In Pilates classes, you either work with your body weight or work with additional weight on the machine. Additionally, many Pilates exercises have progression steps. As you get stronger, you can push yourself by moving into the more challenging version of the movement.

Is Pilates good for weight loss?

Pilates is excellent for maintaining a healthy weight and toning your body. However, when it comes to weight loss, Pilates won't be as effective as cardio classes or weight training. Pilates classes completed on a mat tend to burn fewer calories, so if weight loss is your goal, consider combining Pilates with cardio.

How does Pilates change your body?

Pilates should help your body get stronger, and specifically, your core. This stronger core will help you with balance and posture. In addition to this, most people who regularly go to Pilates report having more toned and defined muscles, especially in the arms, buttocks, and abdomen.

Is Pilates a good workout?

Like most workouts, some people love Pilates, and others don't. Pilates is especially great for those who don't love cardio or want a low-impact form of exercise. People who love cardio might find Pilates isn't the best for them, as it may not raise their heart rate to their target range.

What are the benefits of Pilates?

The benefits of Pilates include its suitability for all ages and physical abilities and the option to progress to more challenging workouts as a person gets stronger. Because it engages the entire body, Pilates can also provide:

  • Increased flexibility
  • Longer, stronger, and better-toned muscles
  • Increased energy
  • Improved posture

Can you do Pilates every day?

Since Pilates is low-impact, it’s safe to do this exercise every day. In fact, doing Pilates every day may help you get into a routine faster. If you sustain an injury, you may want to limit your exercise until you recover.

How often should you do Pilates?

Not everyone can handle working out every day, and generally, experts recommend you try to do Pilates three times a week. The consistency will allow you to see results and improve quickly. When you're not doing Pilates, you may want to consider more cardio-intensive exercises, such as swimming or running.

Is Pilates effective?

Pilates is most effective for strengthening muscles, improving balance, and increasing flexibility. If you're looking to lose weight, you can do Pilates along with a cardio-focused exercise routine and eat a healthy diet. For Pilates to be most effective, you have to go frequently. It also helps to have an instructor who can adjust you when needed.

What is reformer Pilates?

This type of Pilates is done on a reformer machine rather than a mat. It's considered more intense and active than Pilates performed on a mat. The reformer machine has straps for your arms or legs and can be adjusted to provide greater or lesser degrees of resistance.

What to wear to Pilates?

As with any workout, you'll want to wear breathable, comfortable clothing to Pilates classes. Your instructor may also recommend that you wear grip socks to keep your feet from sliding out of position. If you're doing reformer Pilates and have longer hair, you should put it up so it doesn't get caught in the machine.

Why is Pilates so expensive?

Pilates is most effective when an instructor can watch their students and adjust their form if necessary. An instructor can only do this for a handful of people at a time, so Pilates classes tend to be smaller. Due to these smaller classes, the price of Pilates can seem expensive compared to other exercise classes.

Who invented Pilates?

Joseph Pilates invented this popular form of exercise. He was a nurse in World War I and experimented with putting springs on hospital beds to help patients tone their muscles. This gave him the idea to invent what we now know as the reformer machine. Joseph Pilates opened his first studio in 1923 in New York.

Who was Pontius Pilate?

Pontius Pilate was a Roman governor in the 1st century. He served under the emperor Tiberius and is known for being a judge at Jesus' trial. Pilate is thought to have been the one to order Jesus' crucifixion. Some people have credited Pontius Pilate with inventing an early form of Pilates, but this is widely disputed.

How do I become a Pilates instructor?

Pilates instructors typically take a course and earn a certification in teaching Pilates. Some courses may only teach mat or reformer Pilates, while others teach both. Technically, there are no legal license or certification requirements to teach Pilates, but most studios will only hire trained instructors.
