For those of you who may question why working with a trainer may be a better choice than working out on your own, I would like to share some info on what often brings people into my gym and how working with our trainers has helped. Reasons to seek out a trainer range from the desire to be motivated by someone who could help you achieve your goals more effectively to the fear of feeling as though working out alone may cause injury.
Ok, I know this title will cause most people who do pilates to take exception because pilates in itself is strength training. However many of those who have never tried it have preconceived notions on exactly what pilates is. When asked, many will say that it is mostly about stretching and building only abdominal strength. Well yes, it is those are common objectives during pilates workouts, however when done correctly pilates should be a total body workout focusing on muscular strength as a whole.
