Staying in shape is a challenge, especially when it involves trips to a gym or fitness studio. Maybe you’ve tried Pilates and stopped because the studio experience is not your thing. Or maybe you’ve been interested in trying it, but haven’t found a class that fits your schedule. What you may not realize is there are instructors who will bring Pilates to you! In-home Pilates has benefits you may not have considered.
Why is in-home Pilates often a better alternative? Well, there are lots of reasons!
In-home Pilates is convenient
Having a Pilates instructor guide you in the comfort of your own home is increasingly popular. Especially in places like NYC, busy fitness enthusiasts find that in-home Pilates is the perfect solution for fitting a workout into their schedule.
I love teaching in-home Pilates, because I can help my students get over one of the biggest obstacles to sticking with an exercise program. That is, by bring Pilates to them, I make working out so convenient that my students can’t avoid it if they try!
In-home Pilates eliminates distractions
Pilates is a body/mind fitness method. Results depend on your ability to concentrate and utilize the six principles: centering, concentration, control, precision, breathing, and flow.
Of course, these principles are easier to achieve without distractions. However, in group Pilates classes, distractions are common. With in-home Pilates, it’s just you and the instructor. Your attention is 100 percent on what you are doing and how it feels—the perfect setup for discovering deeper levels of movement. You’re able to truly go within yourself, making the exercises even more effective.
You don’t have to keep up with other students
During an in-home Pilates session, you can work at your own pace. You’re at home on your own time, so you can get clear on what you need to work on. As you can imagine, it’s much easier to work up to your potential in the comfort of your home. You won’t be held back by slower students, and you won’t feel the pressure to keep up with those who are faster. Instead, your personal instructor can teach you modifications for exercises that may not have worked for you before. You’ll discover a lot this way, enabling you to take your practice to the next level.
Don’t want to go it completely alone? Find an instructor who offers duet sessions and sign up with a friend.
I recommend private or duet sessions to ensure you receive the individual attention you need for optimal results. When I work with students in NYC’s Upper West Side (or anywhere in NYC), I custom-tailor sessions to meet my clients’ personal fitness needs. I can challenge students without pushing them too far too soon. My clients experience results that far surpass what they’ve accomplished in group classes.
If you’ve tried Pilates or any kind of fitness class in a gym or studio and did not like the results, don’t give up before trying an in-home Pilates session. In the comfort of your own home, you just may see benefits you did not think were possible.
