Being seen early can make the difference between an injury keeps on recurring and one that is nipped in the bud. Leaving things to develop without any advice or professional opinions can be costly for people, especially those who play sports.
What is performance pilates?
Our performance pilates classes are specifically designed for runners, in order to minimise the risk of injury faced by runners. This is done by focusing on the common areas of weakness and issues faced by runners.
These classes are suitable for all levels of runners but are especially beneficial for those who regularly run over 10k. Many choose performance pilates classes if they are looking to boost their performance, extend their running distance or have recurring injuries.
What does the class involve?
The class works on all areas of the body but especially targets those key areas that are involved in running. The exercises undertaken are aimed at:
- hip flexors
- leg abductor and adductor muscles
- gluteals and postural muscles
Balance and co-ordination exercise are also included in every class in order to help the runner to work effectively on their feet.
Can I get 1:1 pilates instruction?
Yes, of course! By having your own personal pilates instructor, we can design a workout which is specific to your needs. Each 1:1 pilates session will be tailor-made to you and you can change the content of your sessions as you progress.
These sessions are ideal if you have an injury or are recovering from surgery. With 1:1 instruction, you can be 100% sure that you are getting the most out of every pilates session.
