What are the Benefits of Working Out with Pilates Equipment?
Pilates apparatus consists of a wide array of equipment designed to accommodate clients at every fitness level. It was developed by Joseph Pilates after he created the traditional mat exercises. Spring tension, straps to hold feet or hands, support for back, neck, and shoulders are an important part of the process. Because of the remarkable nature of the apparatus to both challenge and support the body as you learn to move more efficiently, the Pilates equipment truly act as a complement to the challenging mat work exercises.
How Long Before I See Results?
This varies from client to client depending on how driven and dedicated one is. Typically, when practiced consistently 2-3 times per week, clients will see results in 4-6 weeks. As Joseph Pilates said, “In 10 sessions you will feel the difference, in 20 you will see the difference, and in 30 you will have a whole new body.”
