Pilates classes are based at our Long Eaton and West Bridgford clinics

Pilates is a body conditioning method that targets deep postural muscles to encourage healthy movement patterns.

It aims to develop your body awareness, integrating your mind and body. Our classes have a maximum of six students and are led by Physiotherapists to ensure that any individual needs are met.

Our studio is equiped with Pilates specific equipment including a Trapeze table, Reformer, Core Align, Combo Chair, Ladder Barrel, Baby Arc, Orbit, Foam Rollers, Magic Circles and a multitude of soft and weighted balls.

Small group classes

We regularly run small group pilates classes with a maximum of six students being taught at a time. This allows our instructors to give each participant their own significant individual attention.

Pilates 1:1

1:1 Pilates sessions allow specific exercise programmes to be developed for both in the studio and at home to maximise the benefit from Pilates. As your body changes and develops, so does the exercise programme helping you to strive to achieve and surpass your goals.

Safe for everyone

Pilates works the muscles through controlled movement and can be adapted to challenge any body whilst accomodating potential physical limitations. Therefore, Pilates is suitable for all, at any age, from the first-time exerciser with chronic back pain to top athletes looking for that sporting edge.

Studio Equipment

Our studio is equiped with Pilates specific equipment including a Trapeze table, Reformer, Core Align, Combo Chair, Ladder Barrel, Baby Arc, Orbit, Foam Rollers, Magic Circles and a multitude of soft and weighted balls.

We have recently added 8 x oov’s to our kit. The Oov helps to activate core stabilizing muscles while also gently extending the spine. From stretching to core strengthening to rehabilitation, or for relaxation, the Oov offers significant benefits for spinal health.

Pilates Course levels​

Class feeder for beginners: This class is for beginners who are looking to join into one of the existing classes due to convenience of times available.

Pilates Reviews

Friendly and experienced staff always happy to tailor exercise and Pilates lessons to your needs and abilities. Since attending my mobility and core strength have improved, not to mention the classes are lots of fun.

"As I've aged I've found that I've got increasingly stiff and my joints and mobility have significantly reduced. To counteract these conditions I have been thinking about taking up Pilates and Yoga again, I used to attend classes but dropped out several years ago due to a change in my circumstances. I found Impact Physio through a recommendation from a friend and decided to join. I have now been attending both Pilates and Yoga classes since September this year and have seen a big difference in how I feel physically. The classes are not only good for me but I find them hugely enjoyable, I get a real ""buzz"" out of the exercises. In addition to the feel good factor generated by the exercises, a big plus about going to Impact Physio is that the staff are friendly and approachable. This makes the classes a very good experience, one I would recommend.
