PilatesFIT RUN calsses are designed for runners – and those that want to run. So classes are suitable for all levels of fitness, flexibility and strength. All classes are small groups allowing contact and direction from our instructors so you can be sure that you are performing each exercise safely and correctly. Further to this exercises can be modified to suit participants with different levels of fitness and agility, so you can be sure that you get a workout to your level with every single class.
Participants attend PilatesFIT – RUN sessions primarily to prevent injuries. So even if you are suffering from a minor niggle you can still attend classes. However it is important to note that the goal of PilatesFIT-RUN classes is not to rehabilitate specific injuries. If you’re unsure if these classes are appropriate in your specific circumstance, please have a chat to your practitioner at the clinic.
Classes run for 50 minutes and utilise mostly reformer based exercises. Each class will be different to the last, and will incorporate both Pilates and resistance training. The aim of each class is the same, to isolate and fatigue, increasing your body’s strength and endurance. At the end of each class, there will be time to stretch to assist in recovery and improve flexibility.
It is a run class, so how about wearing what you go for a run in? Wear comfortable, gym appropriate clothing that will allow you to move freely. Please avoid overly baggy clothing as your instructor needs to see how your body is positioned and moving.
Prepare to get a little sweaty, so you may also like to bring a small hand towel and a water bottle. Grip socks are required to be worn and can be purchased from the clinic reception.
As PilatesFIT is a general fitness program, it is generally not claimable through your private health insurance. If you have a specific injury that requires management and rehabilitation, we recommend our PIER program which does incorporate Pilates inspired exercise.
