Who should do Pilates?
One of the greatest advantages of our Gravity Pilates classes - they are suitable for everyone! People often make the assumption that as Pilates is a lower impact class, it is more suited to beginners, however, Pilates is beneficial for everyone. From beginners to seasoned athletes, the low impact style of Pilates allows you to decide the intensity, giving you a huge range of control while still achieving a full body workout.
Body Sculpting Gravity Pilates Equipment
As our Pilates Gyms are so versatile, we offer a huge variety of classes using the incredible Total Gym Gravity Pilates machine. The Total Gym Gravity Pilates machine offers over 250 different exercises, enabling you to achieve a FULL BODY workout. Our Gravity machines allow you to use your own bodyweight as resistance, improving resistance from as little as 1% of bodyweight to a maximum of 62%. By using your own bodyweight as resistance you prevent placing stress on your joints, stress which is usually associated with lifting heavy weights.
Gravity Machines have a moving platform lodged between a foot plate and a vertical tower, attached to this vertical tower are specialised exercise pulleys and strength training bars. Gravity machines differ to other Pilates machines as they can be placed at different angles, giving you a much more efficient and effective workout. Another incredible feature associated with the Gravity Pilates machine is the ability it provides you to tailor your workout to suit YOUR fitness level.
