Pilates vs. Clinical Pilates

Updated: Sep 26, 2023

We often get asked what the difference between regular/fitness Pilates classes and our Clinical Pilates consultations. And it’s no wonder, the word “Pilates” has become used in so many different ways, all with a varying degree of quality and helpfulness. So why do we recommend Clinical Pilates to our

clients rather than just sending them to a traditional Pilates class to get fit and relieve pain?

Clinical Pilates is specific to you.

Fitness Pilates

  • Usually, the instructors are Personal Trainers who are also Pilates trained

  • No individual physical assessment

  • Great for increasing overall core strength, fitness and flexibility

  • Generally, everyone in the class does the same exercises

  • Limited tailoring of programs and not specific to your body’s preferred movement patterns

  • Large number of people in the class

Clinical Pilates

  • Physiotherapist instructor who is also Clinical Pilates trained.

  • Individual Program based on Physiotherapy Principles

  • Initial consultation to assess injury history, your body’s preferred movement pattern, and your goals

  • Physiotherapy treatment can be incorporated into the program

  • Specific changes can be made to your Clinical Pilates program if an injury flares up based on Physiotherapy knowledge

  • Ideal for rehabilitating after injury, surgery or pregnancy and reducing pain by correcting poor mechanics that underlie injury causes

  • Reformer-based equipment which allows for greater control and quality of movement

  • Sessions are one-on-one, made just for you
