"In ten sessions, you will feel the difference, in twenty you will see the difference,
and in thirty you'll have a whole new body."
~ Joseph Pilates ~
A whole new body in 30 sessions may be an exaggeration, but you can expect to feel taller, more elongated, and more energized after just one session. But don’t stop there! To maximize results we recommended that you practice Pilates a minimum of two times a week.
How many times per week should I do Pilates to see results?
Pilates can be done every day as it's designed to not over or undertrain any muscle groups. It is recommended to practice 3x per week for optimal results, but it is most important to listen to your body if you are feeling sore, tired, etc.
How long does it take to notice weight loss from Pilates?
There are many factors that contribute to weight loss, such as genetics, diet, sleep, exercise, and more. It usually takes about 6 weeks to notice a difference when starting a new routine or when incorporating Pilates into your fitness routine.
Does Pilates change your body shape?
Pilates can change certain aspects of your body shape as other factors such as genetics, diet, sleep and exercise influence your body shape. Everyone is different, so some people may see a change overall and others may notice changes in certain areas of their body, such as their legs or abdominals. Pilates is designed to lengthen the body, so your shape should not become bulky.
Can Pilates reduce belly fat?
Yes, Pilates can reduce belly fat as it focuses primarily on the abdominal muscles and burns calories. As a result, you can expect Pilates to give you a streamlined physique and a slimmer mid-section.
