The difference between Clinical Pilates and Fitness Pilates.

Pilates is a great avenue to fitness, strength and overall well being. However there is a difference in the type of Pilates you do. Generally speaking, the two forms are Fitness Pilates and Clinical Pilates.

Fitness Pilates is generally held in a standard gym setting and is a great way to stretch and sculpt the muscles. It’s primary focus is on increasing flexibility and core strength all whilst burning fat.

Clinical Pilates on the other hand is ideal for reducing pain, rehabilitation after injury, increasing strength and even improving sporting performance. Classes are typically, one on one or small groups of people. Exercises are specific to the individual and are performed on equipment which provides better control and quality of movement. Clinical pilates is a tailored modality and as such, before your first class each individual is assessed for strengths and weaknesses. All classes are run by qualified clinical pilates or rehab therapists.
