TEMPO PILATES FAQ: WHAT AGE GROUP IS TEMPO PILATES REFORMER CLASSES FOR?

Tempo Pilates Reformer classes can be beneficial for virtually all ages, fitness levels and body conditions.

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.’

TEMPO PILATES FAQ: I HAVE AN INJURY, CAN I ATTEND THE CLASSES?

It all depends on the type of injury you have and severity.

Unlike Classic Pilates, the Tempo Pilates Reformer method wasn’t developed for rehabilitation but muscle tone and weight management. However, what does make Tempo Pilates classes different from any other fitness regime out there is that it’s much kinder to your body due to low impact, slow and controlled movements. This makes it the ideal choice for post rehabilitation and eliminating minor muscular aches including back pain.

IS TEMPO PILATES USEFUL FOR MEN?

We have all seen and heard men patronise other men who practice Pilates, and many men are concerned whether they will be the only male in studios charged with females, practicing this so-called “women’s sport”.

What most people don’t know?  Pilates was actually created by a cigar smoking, whiskey-drinking boxer, acrobat, and gymnast named Joseph Pilates.  He created his exercise regime first and foremost for men.  He started developing his method at a camp in England during World War I, attaching springs to the beds of the bedridden to rehabilitate them. Pilates was also a physical education instructor with the military police in Germany.

Pilates originally trained athletes: boxers, wrestlers, skiers, gymnasts, and even circus performers. Perhaps the gender shift started to occur when choreographer George Balanchine and dancer Martha Graham caught onto his method, influencing the influx of dancers to seek out his studio, and embrace the Pilates practice.  This could have lead to the misconceptions that Pilates is only for women or dancers.

More men in London are now starting to rediscover the Pilates method and its benefits for their own goals; we have seen men come into the studio seeking to improve their balance, flexibility, coordination and posture, increase their core strength, low back pain and muscular imbalances.  Many male athletes have turned to Pilates to find their edge and strengthen their game.  A few athletes who have made Pilates integral to their physical conditioning are golf star Tiger Woods, England cricketers Mike Atherton and Andrew Flintoff, and footballer David Beckham.

The Tempo Pilates Reformer method compliments every movement and activity one does, whether it be sitting behind a desk, climbing stairs, picking up a bag of groceries, running in the park, swinging a golf club or dribbling a ball across the court.  It will heighten coordination, and improve balance, flexibility, and posture.  It is an intelligent workout that will sharpen focus and increase the ability to concentrate.  Those looking for an autopilot type of workout must look elsewhere.  It will re-educate the body on how to move with more efficient movement patterns, initiating from the powerhouse and develop core strength in the deep muscles of the back to stabilize and protect.

The truth is, the Tempo Pilates Reformer method is for everyone: men, women, the athlete, the injured, the flexible and inflexible, the coordinated and the uncoordinated and the elderly.  Pilates is ageless and genderless. Pilates is not black or white, but shades of grey.
