Pilates is a highly versatile form of exercise, Pointe Ahead Pilates recognises this and embraces it. When every person who walks through our doors is unique, why offer classes that are anything else? Pilates is used by dancers, athletes, and celebrities like Adele, Meghan Markle and Chris Hemsworth. It is also used for rehabilitation and all ages and abilities.
Pilates focuses on developing long, lean muscles through control, flexibility and core strength. By making you more aware of your body, Pilates can become an invaluable component of any workout regimen. Whether you are looking to build strength, lose weight, increase flexibility, or seeking rehabilitation after an injury we’re here to help
The thing that really sets Pointe Ahead Pilates apart is our equipment. While the Reformer might look scary, it has proven benefits for increasing strength and endurance. It has a moving carriage with springs to provide variable resistance. A fabulous way to work out dynamically utilising the whole body whilst providing stability for joints.
The Tower is similar to the Reformer as it uses springs to provide resistance and support. The stable mat makes it less daunting and is a great launch pad to some of the more advance exercises on other pieces of equipment. This is great for rehabilitation as the smaller movements can easily be controlled and once you have the hang of it there are some fun variations to spice things up.
The most common form of Pilates due to its accessibility, requiring only a Mat. Focus is on improving posture, flexibility and core strength using body weight and breath to provide resistance. Our traditional Mat classes are suitable for all levels of fitness and experience.
Created from ballet-inspired moves, Barre classes focus on strength, flexibility, stamina and dynamic stability. Driven by music this a very functional way of training and it can increase coordination, motivation and movement quality whilst having a lot of fun! All you need is a chair and a light weight such as a couple of water bottles or cans of beans.
