Types of Pilates
The term Pilates refers to a type of exercise and not a trademark, therefore be sure the individual you choose to work with is properly trained. This includes a comprehensive training course through a reputable training facility (see resources at the end of this factsheet). Since instructors can be trained on floor exercises and various pieces of equipment, it is important that your instructor has been properly trained on the equipment you will use during your workouts. Properly trained instructors will be able to adapt the program to meet your needs.
