Solo Pilates


  • Dec 02, 2014 12:23 AM GMT
    I used to practice pilates in machines, but i went to another gym and there they have solo pilates classes already included in the monthly payment, if i went to practice machine pilates i`d have to pay a small fortune...
    Will i have the same benefits of machine pilates?

    This sounds like a trick LSAT question because there are pilates machines you can use solo (not as good as the "rack" a trainer manipulates you through) yet "classes" implies there's no machine.

    Are you asking if you'll get the same benefits WITHOUT a pilates machine than WITH EITHER kind of pilates machine? If so, having tried all three both my answer is no - benefits are different for each, and the upgraded rack used in conjunction with a trainer is by far best.

    I agree, but with a competent Pilates trainer. The gym that I am using on trial pass has a Pilates reformer machine, so I use it. It feels like doing weighted Yoga poses. Proper form is easy to maintain compared to Pilates mat exercises using bands.
