Frequently Asked Questions
Pilates is not primarily designed as a weight loss exercise but rather as a method to improve flexibility, strength, and overall body awareness. While it can contribute to weight management by increasing muscle tone and calorie expenditure, for significant weight loss, a combination of Pilates with cardiovascular exercise and a balanced diet is generally recommended.
The frequency of Pilates workouts can vary based on your fitness goals and individual circumstances, but a general guideline is to aim for at least 2-3 sessions per week to see noticeable benefits in strength, flexibility, and posture. However, it’s essential to listen to your body and consult with a fitness professional to determine the right frequency for your specific needs and abilities.

The choice between yoga and Pilates depends on your specific fitness goals and preferences. Yoga is more holistic, emphasising flexibility, mindfulness, and relaxation, while Pilates is primarily focused on core strength, posture, and overall body toning, so the “better” option depends on what you’re looking to achieve.
Mat Pilates can be just as effective as reformer Pilates for improving core strength, flexibility, and overall fitness, provided that you perform a well-rounded and challenging set of mat exercises with proper technique.
