At Ultimate Performance Lifestyle all of our Modified Pilates classes are taught by fully qualified Physiotherapists, trained in both Pilates and biomechanical movement. We have been teaching Modified Pilates in Peterborough since we opened in 2012, we have a purpose build Pilates studio and some of our regular participants have been attending since our very first class!
The style of Pilates we teach is often very different to what many of our class participants have previously experienced. Muscular imbalances are a key contributor behind many aches and pains, such as neck and back problems. These imbalances occur when certain muscles become tight and highly toned, whilst others weaken. Our Modified Pilates classes have been specifically designed to focus on core conditioning techniques and exercises designed to strengthen weak points and correct imbalances.
Participants join our classes because they are experiencing neck pain, suffering from upper or lower back pain, recovering from an operation or injury, training for a sport, keen to rebuild core muscles post pregnancy or because they just want to enjoy the benefits of a specialised Pilates class
Integrating the core principles of Pilates (breathing, concentration, movement, relaxation, alignment, centring, pelvic stability, stamina and co-ordination), our experienced Physiotherapists lead class participants through exercises that have been carefully adapted to help increase flexibility and movement, improve stamina, enhance their core strength and reduce neck and back pain
At Ultimate Performance Lifestyle we keep class sizes small. This allows our Physiotherapists to walk around the class and ensure each participant is performing exercises with the correct posture and alignment. Our teachers can adapt exercises to meet an individuals needs and provide aids and equipment to support certain positions such as pillows, bricks, large balls and small spiky massage balls.
All of our regular classes are suitable for beginners though to intermediate and advanced participants, as for each Pilates movement our Physiotherapists will carefully guide attendees through different levels. We also offer a dedicated Post-Natal Modified Pilates Class.
We also offer one-to-one Pilates classes on request.
If you are unsure if our Pilates classes would be suitable for you we offer a 30 minutes dedicated Pilates assessment by a Chartered Physiotherapist for £35.
