5 Tips on How to choose a Pilates Studio

When it comes to choosing a Pilates studio, there are many things that need to be considered. 

There are thousands of Pilates companies in the United States alone, and looking for the right one can seem like finding a needle in the haystack.

Whether you’re looking for a studio near your house or near your office, there are certain questions that need to be asked and answered before finalizing the decision.

With these 5 tips in mind, you can find the best Pilates studio in whichever city you’re in.

Tip #1 Find a studio with certified Pilates instructors

This is the most crucial part of choosing a Pilates studio – making sure that your instructors are certified. Find out if they have sufficient training and experience to guide you. 

These days, it’s easy to verify this information. You can simply do a Google search and type the certification name. Then, you will discover the number of training hours required to complete the certification. 

You can also look at the studio’s reviews and see what others are saying about the quality of the classes.

Tip #2 Check out the vibe of the Pilates studio

Working out can be challenging, especially if it’s not yet part of your routine. Motivation plays a huge part in continuing your workout plan. Imagine: “What if you don’t like the studio vibe?” 

Starting your Pilates workout can be daunting, so find a studio that has a welcoming atmosphere and friendly classmates. Don’t forget the interiors as well. Do you like the look and feel of the studio?

Tip #3 Ask about the studio’s Pilates method of teaching

While Pilates studios offer almost the same type of exercises, they still vary in their way of teaching. You want to make sure that the instructor is someone you can work with long-term. So, it’s vital that you feel comfortable with your instructor’s way of teaching and most importantly that you enjoy the workout. 

Tip #4 Look at the studio’s available classes and schedule

When finding the right Pilates studio, check out their availability. Make sure that it fits your schedule. In addition, find out if they are offering classes that match your needs. 

Look at their websites to learn more about the types of classes they offer (mat, reformer, private or group classes, etc).

Tip #5 Choose a Pilates studio with a convenient location

If you are choosing among various studios within the area, choose the one that is most convenient for you. Also, consider the traffic and hassle of going there. The best location for a Pilates studio would be the one near your home or your workplace.
