Our team at Fitness By Design is passionate about Pilates, and we encourage more people to give this workout a try. If you are interested in trying Pilates for yourself, we recommend that you take the time to look for a great Pilates instructor. In this article, our experienced team will go over a few key things to look for in an instructor in order to make sure you will enjoy the program and get the results you want.
- Experience- When searching for a Pilates instructor, we recommend that you look for someone with plenty of experience with the technique. The longer an instructor has studied Pilates, the better they will be at teaching the exercises to you. In addition, we recommend that you look for an instructor who has worked with people of many different body types, ages, and levels of fitness experience to make sure they can adapt their instruction to your needs.
- Flexibility- We also recommend looking for a Pilates instructor who is willing to change and adapt their teaching style to suit a variety of different learners. Not everyone responds to the same types of cues or encouragement, and a good instructor will take the time to find what works best for you and provide the kind of feedback you need to thrive in their class.
- Passion- A third key thing to look for in a Pilates instructor is passion for what they do. In our experience, it’s hard to learn anything from someone who is simply going through the motions, much less get excited about what they have to teach. Our instructors have a deep love of Pilates, and we are eager to help more people experience its benefits for themselves.
