Pilates and Pilates classes have certainly boomed in Brisbane of late so we examine some of the things you should look for when shopping for a Pilates class if you live in Brisbane.
Pilates is often thought of as being pretty easy and a gentle form of exercise. This is not always the case and some classes are so tough you may not walk properly for a few days after a class.
Pilates classes can be very different in intensity and style so it's important to first establish what you want out of your class - a tough core and all over body workout / a gentle relaxing class / a more rehab or clinical approach. Then, once you've established this, do your research up front to make sure you get the most out of your Pilates experience.
Pilates classes in gyms in Brisbane are usually a pretty strong workout and the price is usually the cost of a casual gym entry or at most gyms they are free for members so around $15.
Pilates classes in a Pilates studio in Brisbane are the next step up. These range from $20 - $45 for a group class using the Pilates equipment, all the way up to $80+ for a private session with an instructor.
Pilates classes done one-to-one are usually done if you have a chronic injury, if you are generally injury free then a group class is fine and the way you should go to get a workout and value for money.
