Product Features

There are five trainers at the Pilates Body, four are certified and all must meet continuing education requirements to continue training at the gym. Packages are sold on a per person basis, but must be used within four months of purchase. Classes are available on a scheduled basis, so the dieter must be free during gym class hours to take part in classes.

The Pilates Body uses the teachings of Joseph Pilates as the basis for class instruction. The specific method of Pilates used at the gym is called STOTT Pilates. STOTT Pilates incorporates newer medical theories into older Pilates methods. There are more than 200 exercises in STOTT Pilates.

Dieters wishing to take part in The Pilates Body classes must live near the gym as there is only one location. This limits the number of people who can partake in the weight loss program. Pilates is based on strengthening core muscles, including pelvic and back muscles.

Dieters new to the Pilates experience may wish to read more about Pilates before signing up for a class. The art of Pilates is difficult to follow and may require some basic fitness skills.

Dieters new to Pilates may have difficulty making it through the program. The Pilates Body suggests taking at least five classes to see a change in the body. There is no mention of weight loss or diet tips and none of the staff are trained in nutrition.
