Frequently asked questions
In this section we would like to answer all your questions about Pilates as a physical conditioning exercise. If you do not find the answer to your questions, do not hesitate to contact us or visit us directly at our facilities.
What is Pilates with machines?
Pilates with machines involves the use of apparatus such as Reformer devices for the practice of exercises and movements. It is particularly suitable for people who suffer an injury or pathology and are in the process of recovery. In addition, with machines it is more comfortable to perform the exercises, as it is less demanding on the body. This same positive aspect can be used in the opposite direction, increasing the body load if requested by the athlete.
Which is better: Pilates on machines or on the floor?
There is no universal answer to this question, although there are characteristics of both formulas that can help you to choose one or the other. Pilates on the floor is more accessible, as you can do it directly at home, with the help of a mat. However, it is not as useful for rehabilitation exercises, it requires more physical and mental work and can be more aggressive for the body.
Pilates with machines offers more variety of exercises, facilitates the execution of certain movements and is more appropriate for overcoming muscular injuries. On the other hand, it is advisable to put yourself in the hands of experienced instructors, as we do in our centre. In addition, the sessions are held in larger spaces.
I have an injury, can I do Pilates with machines?
Yes, you can go to a Pilates centre with machines to recover from an injury. The high quality Reformer type machines are designed to facilitate and extend the degree of mobility, but they should only be used by users who are familiar with this technique or by sportsmen and women who have professional advice.
