The classes with equipment are great fun and keep it interesting, challenging your muscles in different ways. These classes are suitable for intermediate to advanced levels and it is recommended that you complete a course of matwork classes prior to attending. It is essential that you are confident to sit and lay on a gym ball prior to attending the gym ball sessions.
Mat Work Pilates:
Monday 9:20-10:20am, Wednesday 7:30-8:20 pm & Friday 9:30-10:30am
A generic Matwork Pilates Class (beginners-advanced) runs on a Wednesday evening (8:00-9:00pm), Monday (9:20am), and a Friday morning (9:30am) at the Fit Pit Gym. Currently there is no booking procedure for the Wednesday session and you pay £4.50 on the night. Friday class runs in 4 week blocks which can be pre-booked, £18 for block, or £6 per session if you drop-in and pay as you go.
These classes are suitable for beginners up to advanced level. Each exercise is taught from level 1 upwards so you can chose what level you wish to work at and exercise at your own pace. There is always assistance during the class and the instructor will come round and correct your alignment and technique as needed to ensure you get the most out of the session.
Many people that attend have pre-existing musculoskeletal problems and cannot achieve some of positions so many exercises are taught in 2-3 different ways to meet the needs of everyone. Feel free to ask questions during the class or put up your hand for extra support or advice. We like to ensure everyone feels supported during the session and is never struggling along unsure of what they doing.
It is recommended (but not essential) to attend a 60 minute one-to-one introductory session if you have never done Pilates before (or if you have done it before but still unsure regarding pelvic alignment and core activation). This will comprise of teaching alignment, ‘pelvis neutral’, deep core activation and maintenance, the breathing method, how to spot your compensations, and some basic exercises to practice at home. This way you will get the most out of each class and become proficient in the exercise technique. If you have an injury, especially a spinal condition, this one-to-one session and health screening is compulsory.
We vary the class every week, no class is ever the same. We have regular attendees and welcome new people every week so please come along and join us. Please call if you have any further questions or to arrange a one-to-one session.
