A. If you’re ready to experience a body-mind-spirit transformation, 3-D Pilates in Motion is the method for you. Utilizing a fully equipped Pilates studio, having all of the Pilates equipment we tailor a program specific to your needs. Instructors Shannon and her team at Club Pilates use contemporary Pilates fundamentals integrated with Applied Functional Science principles, strategies and techniques, creating an experience unique to 3D Pilates in Motion.
Q. What kind of results can I expect to see from doing 3D Pilates in Motion?
A. We will develop a program specifically based on the results of your postural and gait assessments and goals. Results may be an increase in strength, flexibility, mobility, balance, and body awareness, as well as a decrease in back pain and other general pains. Also better posture, functional performance, increased muscle tone, metabolic fitness, strong and flexible abdominals, back muscles, hips, pelvis and shoulders.
Q. How long will I have to do the workout before I see results?
A. The average active person, doing 3 sessions per week should experience some results within two to three months. This varies depending on each individual, the number of sessions a person takes each week, whether they are private or group classes and whether they participate in other physical activities and follow a healthy nutritional plan.
Q. Can I lose weight just doing 3D Pilates in Motion?
A. The most successful and healthy way to achieve weight loss is an exercise plan that includes an aerobic component coupled with a strength training component, such as 3D Pilates in Motion exercise, and following a healthy nutritional plan. 3D Pilates in Motion can be a positive addition to your overall weight loss program. Combining Pilates with aerobic exercise also offers additional benefits: greater mind-body connection, improved posture, flexibility and functionality.
Q. How is 3D Pilates in Motion different or better than other Pilates, weight training or other resistance exercise?
A. Functional movement training integrated with the Pilates Method is what makes 3D Pilates in Motion unique. Weight training traditionally focuses on single muscle training, which often leads to injury, muscular imbalances and boredom. 3D Pilates in Motion is different than most Pilates in that the training is three-dimensional functional movement training rather than just a bunch of different exercises. Functional means that the training improves the clients performance while also developing strength, flexibility and stability. We use Pilates equipment to create the proper joint action and muscle function to achieve the desired result. Spring resistance more closely resembles muscular contraction with an emphasis on concentric/eccentric muscle contraction that is important for injury prevention. Emphasis is placed on re-balancing muscles around the joints and corrects over-training and muscle imbalance that leads to injury. 3D Pilates in Motion emphasizes balancing strength with flexibility (for injury prevention and more efficient movement) and leads to an improvement in posture and body awareness.
Q. What is Restore and how is it different from “foam rolling?”
A. Restore is a unique program that utilizes soft foam rollers and soft balls to create gentle soft tissue releases and soften the nervous system. “All Gain, No Pain!” is the underlying premise of Restore with the old days of painful rolling now being obsolete with the application of the latest scientific truths about connective tissue and fascia. Restore improves joint function and balance which leads to improved movement quality and decreased pain. Restore is a great addition to any training program and pairs exceptionally well with alignment-based, core exercise programs like Pilates.
