Do you need to be fit to do Pilates?
No. Clinical Pilates exercises and intensity are adapted for all levels of fitness and abilities. Pilates really is for everyone and everybody!
What should I wear?
Comfortable, non-restrictive clothing is best for your 1-2-1 and group sessions, layers are handy for the relaxation and warm-up sections of the classes.
For the Physiotherapy assessment sessions, we ask you to bring shorts and wear suitable undergarments as a requirement to undress for observation may be needed.
