With so many Pilates studios popping up on the Gold Coast, there is more to making up your mind than simply finding a studio within your closest proximity. There are plenty of options out there to choose from, however, finding one that suits YOU can be a totally different question all together. Apart from wanting to gain the obvious benefits of what Pilates has to offer, I believe you have to feel comfortable with your instructor, trust them and be able to enjoy a bit of a giggle every so often.
So, which one suits you?! In a world so highly reliant on conversing via email, making assumptions through social media and searching the web for opinions, why not make a phone call (as primitive as that may sound) to your desired studio and have a chat, ask questions, and see what they can offer you. If you have injuries, discuss if classes can be tailored to suit your needs.
There are numerous training facilities on offer to future Pilates instructors, each of them having their own place within the Pilates world. With that said, being a member of a regulated Pilates body, such as the Pilates Alliance Australasia (PAA), sets guidelines and standards for instructors to follow, and in turn, indicates to potential clients a standard is adhered to.
So take the time to do a bit of research, ask a few questions and enjoy starting your Pilates journey!
