Clinical Pilates Benefits
We think Pilates is great, but you may be asking… “what are the Modified or Clinical Pilates benefits?”
There are many great reasons for participating in a Pilates class, (click here to read our blog on five of the benefits). Pilates exercises use bodyweight and small equipment (balls and therabands) to help target different areas of the body, to improve flexibility and strength. Breathing is an important area of focus during the exercises.

Difference between General Pilates and PhysioFit Health Pilates classes
One of the differences is that we’ll modify or alter exercises depending on your level and ability. You’ll go through different levels of difficulty and with repetition and practice, understand when to push yourself or not.
Another difference is our class size. Attending a general Pilates class at the gym, you’ll likely be with a lot of other people, where it can be difficult to get enough feedback from the instructor. Whereas our classes will have a maximum number of 8 people, which means more opportunity for individual feedback (we can be quite picky).
Pilates classes can be used for injury prevention. For example, if you’ve decided to take up a new hobby, a course of Pilates can help target the body to improve your flexibility and strength where needed rather than coming away from your new hobby with aches and pains and thinking it’s not for you.
