Pilates in White Rock B.C.
People needing rehabilitaion classes to strengthen and tone are best to work on the Pilates Reformer fitness machine. Joseph Pilates invented this amazing machine for that very purpose, and it is still today, the best rehabilitation exercise machine for most problems.
1/2 hour Rehabilitation Classes: We now offer these shorter Pilates classes to people with very limited endurance. When you are recovering from an accident, surgery or long term disabilites a 1 hour class is too tiring. When you are working on the Pilates Reformer each exercise targets specific muscle groups. Isolating muscles so they learn how to strengthen, stretch and tone correctly is tiring both physically and mentally.
Most elderly clients can concentrate for 30 minutes and and their bodies can gain strength and muscle tone, but after 30 minutes, their thoughts wander, their muscles tire and at that point doing more exercises is of little benefit.
The 1/2 hour class is $30 for a private or $20 for a semi private. By keeping these class costs down people are able to come more often rather than coming once per week. They see much faster results and results make us all happy.
