The Development of Clinical Pilates in Brisbane

 

Do you know the background about the development of Pilates not only in Brisbane but around the world? Here are some interesting factors associated with the growth of this popular workout routine:

 

  • A 20th-century practice: You may be surprised to learn that Pilates didn’t take shape until the first part of the 20th century by a man named Joseph Pilates from Germany. His mother was a naturopath, and his father was a gymnast, so he showed an interest in movement and exercise from an early age. Pilates believed that through combining mental and physical well-being, a person could achieve the ultimate fitness goals, which are how the Pilates exercises came to be.

  • First World War testing: Pilates served as a soldier during the First World War. He was ultimately captured and sent to an internment camp, where he took the opportunity to test out some of his exercise techniques and theories on fellow soldiers over the next four years.

  • A worldwide phenomenon: The premise of Pilates caught on quickly. Joseph Pilates’ students would take what they learned and take it back to their separate parts of the world. Over time, this exercise technique grew even further to incorporate apparatuses that would challenge yet strengthen the user.

 

What You Can Expect When You Take a Pilates Class in Brisbane With Us

 

While we know that there are several other Pilates studios in the area, we believe that the classes that we offer are the best options for you for the following reasons:

 

  • Booking flexibility: We know every client has a unique schedule which is why our team tries to accommodate every client that would like to take one of Pilates classes. If you decide to take one of our in-person classes, you can lock in your position ahead of time through our online portal. However, we also offer online Pilates classes, which are often more conducive to a client that may have a busier schedule. You can still arrange for a time to meet with our doctor in the morning, afternoon or evening.

  • Private Pilates class: Some people feel uncomfortable participating in a Pilates class around other people. This is particularly true if a person is new to this type of exercise. Other people prefer to receive the personalised attention that comes with a private Pilates class. This format gives them the peace of mind that they are executing each movement correctly. If you prefer to take advantage of this option, just let us know so that we can arrange for a private class for you.

  • An assessment consultation: To provide you with the best Pilates experience, we offer every client an assessment consultation. It’s vital for our team to learn more about you, including your current physical condition and any injuries that may impact performing certain exercises. We can then help to put a workout schedule in place for you that can help you to reach the goals that you have for yourself. You can expect your Pilates sessions to last anywhere between 45-minutes up to an hour.

 

We also offer an array of other services in connection with our in-person or online Pilates classes. Some examples include physiotherapy, hydrotherapy, and group exercise. As long as you commit yourself to your workouts and maintain your healthy dedication, you will likely see a positive change in yourself sooner rather than later.

 

Tips for Getting More Out of Exercise at Home

 

Home exercise can present a challenge if you don’t plan for certain aspects of it. Here are some tips that you should keep in mind when planning to participate in online exercise:

 

  • Be sure that you have enough space: It’s important to remember that you will need to move during your workout. Therefore, you must ensure that you have enough space to do that in the room that you choose to exercise in. A good rule of thumb is to move any tables, chairs or lamps out of the way to ensure that you won’t knock anything over or run into anything during your workout. This will also help to reduce the possibility of injury.

  • Listen to your body: While you may be eager and excited to begin your new workout routine, you must listen to your body as you perform each movement. You should never feel extreme pain as you’re working out. While you should feel as though you’re pushing yourself, you should never get to the point where you feel as though you can’t move due to pain after your clinical Pilates online.

  • Have the right equipment: Even though you’re not travelling to our Pilates studio to your class, you must have the right equipment at home to help you capitalise on your workout. Our team can speak with you in greater detail about must-have pieces of equipment that you should have on hand for your workout.

 

Remember, our staff can provide you with any insight that you need in setting up your home space to accommodating a Pilates workout. If you need any guidance, don’t be afraid to contact us any ask.

 

Benefits of Taking a Pilates Class in Brisbane

 

If you’ve never taken a Pilates class, you’re missing out on an excellent opportunity to improve your physical fitness. Here are a couple of reasons why Pilates classes have become so popular:

 

  • Better posture: Many people struggle with improper posture. As a result of bad posture, you may experience different muscle aches and pains. The improved muscle strength that you will see after taking Pilates classes will help you sit and stand straighter and take pressure off of certain parts of your body, including your back.

  • Decreased risk of injury: An understandable concern among many people that are new to the world of Pilates is that they will get hurt during a session. Although some Pilates techniques may seem complex, the reality is that Pilates is a series of exercises that are meant as a form of rehabilitation, so as long as you follow the guidance of your instructor, the likelihood that you will sustain an injury is very low.

  • Increased stamina: Pilates exercises revolve around a pattern of intense movements with short break times which results in an improvement in your stamina. There are significant advantages that come with increased stamina, including a positive upgrade in your endurance as well as your energy which can help you to focus better on different tasks throughout your day.
