Pilates classes are popular with dancers, gymnasts, athletes and others in their physical prime but it is equally suitable for almost any age. Indeed, one of the beauties of Tempo Pilates Reformer classes is that we tailor it to suit each person’s physical ability by adjusting the reformer resistance through spring tension.
Older clients might still have to ask for medical advice before taking up Pilates classes and to start more slowly. Many people, however, do Pilates into their eighties and nineties. A properly tailored Pilates program is one of the best-known ways to ward off the infirmities of old age.
Your true age, in the end, of course, is as much a function of how you feel as the date on your birth certificate. As Joseph Pilates himself put it: ‘If, at the age of 30, you are stiff and out of shape, you are old. If, at 60, you are supple and strong, then you are young.’
