Private Pilates Sessions

pilates classes in novi miIn a Private Pilates session, you experience a 55-minute session tailored to your body’s level and desired focus on Pilates mat and reformer. You will also learn your body like never before through the tutelage of your own certified Pilates trainer that works with you for quick results.

 

 

 

With a private session you book a time that works in your schedule rather than sticking to a pre-set class schedule–we recommend 30 minute classes to start for those with fibromyalgia. A Pilates instructor’s trained eye is crucial for proper form and ultimate results. The instructor ensures that it never gets boring by introducing something new in variations, props, equipment and constant motivation.

 

Bone Fit Programs – Too Fit To Fracture

Our bone strength works like a bell curve, and strengthening or raising the peak of the curve now will allow our bones to avoid deterioration longer, tapering off at a later age. Many assume suitable care for one’s bones solely includes proper vitamins or calcium-enriched diets, but it turns out that specific types of exercise must also be included. Proper workout programs can strengthen our muscles while additionally awakening dormant osteoblasts, rebuilding and reshaping current bone structure. Four types of exercises that perform these functions, which Bone Fit offers in every class, include the following:

1. Weight bearing
2. Resistance Training
3. Flexibility
4. Balance Training

Weight bearing exercise includes any activity where your feet, legs, and hips are supporting all of your body’s weight. No type of machine or “middleman” can be used in this case, such as a bike or swimming pool. It needs to be feet-to-ground, including high or low-impact training like dancing, walking, jogging, and so on.  And balance is an important component to avoid falls.

Remember, Movement is key to staying healthy as we age!
