1. INDIVIDUAL EXPERT ADVICE
In a world diluted with influencers and Pilates “pros”, you can’t beat expert advice from a qualified and experienced professional.
A qualified Pilates teacher is the expert you need to provide you tailored advice and exercises, whether you’re goal is to:
  • Complete your first marathon or triathlon
  • Improve your sporting game
  • Charge up your training
  • Maximize your time and effort
The benefits of personal training and expert advice are unquestionable if you’re:
  • Suffering or recovering from an injury
  • Working out during pregnancy
  • Getting back to exercising post natal
2. SAFE, SUITABLE & SPECIFIC PROGRAMMING
Everyone’s goals differ which is why if you take two people and do the same online program you will likely get different results.
Investing in a Pilates teacher means you get:
  • Personalised training
  • Encouragement and guidance on how to try new movements, and workouts
  • A wider variety of exercise in your training routine
Safe and suitable programming is one of the top benefits of pilates training and particularly important if you have any contraindications to exercise, injuries, pre/post natal or post menopausal.
3. MOTIVATION & ACCOUNTABILITY
When exercising on your own it can be easy to skip a session, snooze your alarm clock or cheat a set. A personal trainer will keep you accountable and push your workouts to the next level while providing motivation throughout each session and the duration of your program.
4. FRESH IDEAS & INSPIRATION
It can be easy to fall into the same workout habits and eventually get bored with your workout routine. In addition to affecting your mood and motivation, this is a common cause of training plateau and you may be left wondering why you’re not seeing results from working out.
And in case you ever run out of ideas, there are a variety of tools that provide with your workout suggestions, such as the ‘Art of Pilates’ Facebook TV channel daily training guide.
A Pilates teacher can bring much-needed variety and a fresh perspective and new viewpoints to challenge both your body and mind. You can use these learnings and inspiration even after your Pilates program ends.
5. EFFICIENCY
Pilates teachers conduct a needs analysis and use their expertise to create a tailored and individual fitness plan to help you maximise results in a timely manner, increasing the efficiency of your exercise program.
This is especially beneficial if you have limited time to exercise – you know, nothing out of the ordinary, just the usual full-time job, family and social commitments – and you want to capitalize on the time you spend working out. Effective workouts with a personal trainer will make sure you’ll have time for other important things in your life.
6. SUPPORT
One of the perhaps less known benefits of personal training is that it’s much more than fitness. Personal trainers act as unofficial therapists and can provide a great source of connection. Sure, they’ll help you reach your fitness goals but they also care about your well-being and can assist in improving not only your physical, but mental health.
7. RESULTS
Depending on your goals and budget, you may use a Pilates trainer once a week or once a month. If you’re not sure, just try it out once to see if it’s right for you.
Many great trainers also provide information, tools and resources on your nutrition and lifestyle habits to maximize your results. That is something you can take with you and incorporate in your journey to healthy, active living in the long term.
