Frequently Asked Questions: Pilates

If you’re new to the world of Pilates, don’t worry; let’s give you a quick rundown of the types of Pilates.

What is Pilates?

Pilates, devised by German physical trainer Joseph Pilates, has been around since the early 20th century. It is a fitness programme that takes inspiration from yoga. But unlike yoga, which focuses on the balance of physical, mental, and spiritual well-being through asanas, Pilates relies on seven core principles: breath, concentration, control, centering, flow, postural alignment, precision, relaxation, and stamina.

Although Pilates does not include rapid, heart-pounding sets like HIIT training, it adopts a similar principle of slow but dynamic movements that push the body to its extreme in challenging poses.

So if you’re feeling a little apprehensive about jumping into a cardio-intense workout or hitting the weights, or just want to try something new to kick-start your fitness journey again, Pilates might be the thing for you.

What is a Pilates Reformer?

The reformer is like a finely tuned instrument, providing the perfect amount of resistance for precise alignment, core strength, and flexibility. Using your own body weight and the resistance of springs, you’ll push and pull the carriage to work every muscle and achieve a beautifully toned physique.

What is AbsFocus™?

AbsFocus™ is a Pilates-inspired class that places emphasis on strengthening the abdominal muscles. The routine maximises every minute of the hour-long session by utilising dynamic routines set to upbeat music. The class is designed to sculpt the core muscles, enhance core strength, and build endurance, making it suitable for all fitness levels. Expect a challenging workout that pushes both the body and mind to their limits.

AbsFocus™ is available at TOPFIT.

What is Infrared Pilates?

Experience the radiant, therapeutic heat of infrared heat panels, which emit an unseen light that penetrates your skin and heats the very core of your body. Benefits of far-infrared heat include increased blood circulation, improved oxygen levels, enhanced collagen production, and detoxification through sweat.

Infrared Pilates is available at DEFIN8 Fitness.

What is the Gyrotonic training system?

Imagine a workout that combines the grace of dance, the strength of gymnastics, and the fluidity of swimming. That’s what you get with the Gyrotonic system, the most common image that comes to mind when people think of Pilates. It’s a pulley-based workout that utilises the Gyrotoner, Jumping Stretching Board, and Archway to train major muscle groups independently and interactively.

And at Iso Fit, you can experience Gyrotonic training with specialised attachments that adapt to your ever-changing workout needs.
