It is important that you work with a professional trainer when doing mat Pilates at our studio in Greensboro, NC.
The founder of Pilates, Joseph Pilates, once stated, “The Pilates Method teaches you to be in control of your body and not at its mercy.” When it was first developed, the mat Pilates method involved just a mat on which the exercises were performed. Today, mat Pilates is still kept relatively simple, although some smaller pieces of equipment have been added, including bands, resistance rings and balls. Primarily, however, mat Pilates involves using your body weight alone as a safe and effective way to tone and shape your body. At Fitness By Design, we offer both mat Pilates and reformer Pilates sessions.
Doing mat Pilates correctly is important. You must focus on breathing and keeping your abdominals contracted and active. It is advisable to work with an instructor when first learning mat Pilates, as well as later on when you need reinforcement that you are doing it correctly. One of the best things about mat Pilates is that you can do it every day. It is also safe to do when you are pregnant and as part of rehabilitation after many types of injuries. Again, the important thing is to work with a professional trainer when doing mat Pilates.
We offer various types of sessions of mat Pilates, including one-on-one private sessions and up to 4 people in a group. You can also purchase packages at a discount. We are confident that we can help you attain your fitness goals, whether you are a beginner or advanced in mat Pilates.
