New [as heck] to Pilates

Updated: Oct 22, 2021

Whether you are new to Pilates or trying to convert a friend or family member over to Pilates, there are usually a lot of questions about what Pilates really is and what "the protocols" are when you are beginning a practice.

Honestly, I'd like to say "you do you, Boo" - which I think you totally should do "you", but there are actually a few things that are helpful to know before starting a practice or to know if you are newer to Pilates [like the answer to "should I wear underwear?"].

So, here's my plan...

I outlined some topics to blog about over the next year - please feel free to message me if you'd like to see any other topics!

  • Why should I try Pilates?

  • Is it true that ANYONE can do Pilates?

  • Am I too fat to practice Pilates successfully?

  • Will Pilates help me lose weight?

  • What is the best type of studio to work with?

  • What does each piece of equipment do?

  • What are all those little gadgets that looks weird?

  • Is there a cardio aspect to Pilates?

  • What are my session options at the different types of studios?

  • How much does Pilates cost?

  • What should I wear? *I'll cover the underwear topic here :)

  • What should I expect at my session?

  • What if I can’t do an exercise?

  • What if I fart a lot?

  • How many times a week should I do Pilates?

  • How long should a session be to give me benefits?

  • How long does it take to see results?

  • Should Pilates replace my current movement practice?

  • What is the difference between the Pilates Principles and the Fundamentals?
