What type of Pilates session should I take?

At Pilates Fit Studio, we firmly believe that private Pilates is the best way to start your Pilates practice, regardless of whether you are a beginner or an experienced athlete. Private sessions allow you to work on your specific health goals and get the most out of your training program. These private sessions make Pilates such an incredible beginner-friendly form of exercise that is safe and effective. Each lesson will be personalized to give you a strong foundation, help you gain new skills, and work towards your goals. You will get familiar with the essential apparatus setup instructions to move forward into a duet or small group Pilates class. 

What to Expect During a Beginner Pilates Private Session

No matter your fitness level, beginner Pilates is where it all starts. From athletes to fitness newbies, we begin with the foundational beginner system. The beginner system Pilates exercises will become the building blocks for intermediate and advanced exercises.

During your beginner Pilates sessions in Louisville, your teacher thoroughly explains everything: when to change the spring setting, the choreography, the number of repetitions, and how to get on and off the apparatus. The beginner exercises are not easy, but they are effective and safe for everyone. You will sweat and get a challenging workout.

At the end of each workout, your trainer will update your account with SOAP notes so that you can always see your progress and what needs to be worked on.

Pilates Mat Exercise to build stability and strength

To begin your lesson, your trainer will place you on a stable surface, either the classical raised mats or the Cadillac, to work on strength and stability with the mat exercises.


Beginner System on the Reformer

Working on Individual Needs

After completing exercises on the mat and the reformer, your trainer will assess your strengths, asymmetries, and areas that need improvement to decide where to take you next. These are your individual needs. You might end up using the highchair to work on stability or small barrels if you need to improve spinal mobility and activate the powerhouse.


Alignment and Standing Balance and Stability

To end, we make sure you are standing tall with either an alignment check on the wall or the arm weight series to work with shifting gravity while building strength in the upper body.
