Pilates Classes For Injury Rehabilitation, Injury Prevention, Strength, & Overall Wellness

What is Pilates?

Pilates is all about precision and control. When you move through the exercises in a Pilates class, you’ll focus on technique, proper body mechanics, and breath. It can be done with or without equipment, and uses specific exercises to improve:

  • Core Strength
  • Flexibility
  • Coordination
  • Mind-Body Awareness

It’s a natural complement to physical therapy, but you don’t have to be a physical therapy patient to benefit from Pilates. Because the goal is to improve overall health by creating balance and awareness, Pilates can benefit anyone, regardless of fitness level or prior injuries.

What Are The Benefits of Pilates?

While Pilates training emphasizes core strength, the exercises you’ll do train the body as an integrated whole. When practicing Pilates you’ll notice:

  • Greater awareness of body positioning.
  • Stronger, more elongated muscles.
  • Toned, not bulky, muscle mass.
  • Better posture.
  • Pain reduction in the neck, shoulders, back, hips, and knees.
  • Improved overall mobility.

When you commit to Pilates classes, you’ll learn how true this statement from Joseph Pilates really is:

“If your spine is inflexibly stiff at 30, you are old; if it is completely flexible at 60, you are young.”

Should I Do Pilates?

Absolutely! Nearly anyone can benefit from Pilates, regardless of age or fitness level. Pilates is particularly helpful for anyone recovering from sports injuries and other injuries, but you don’t have to be undergoing injury treatment to enjoy this type of exercise.

Much of our lives are spent in static postures, which restricts how well the hips, spine, ankles, and feet can move. If you suffer from pain in the neck, shoulders, lower back, or knees, Pilates can help you feel and function better.

Experience The Diamond Peak Difference

Many Pilates classes jump right into strength training, with no regard for joint mechanics or how the underlying muscle tissue feels. “No pain, no gain” is a popular phrase, but our highly trained Pilates instructors have a different approach. With a strategic plan in place and through individualized attention, our goal is:

First, to restore joint and tissue mobility by improving joint stability and motor planning. Then, we’ll increase strength, endurance, and overall body awareness for pain-free movement.

You’ll learn how to move without pain and without muscle or joint damage. Then, you’ll learn how to properly strengthen and lengthen your muscles. Because our instructors have advanced training in body mechanics, you’ll get to the root of any pain and mobility issues.

Whether you’re joining us for help with injury rehabilitation, injury prevention, to improve overall strength, or just to feel more balanced in your body, you’ll learn how to work your body in a way that promotes overall muscle balance. Our classes are purposefully small to provide more individual attention, too.

Frequently Asked Questions About Pilates

Are classes open to the public?

Absolutely! New students are required to take one private lesson before joining a small group class. This allows the instructor to identify your exact needs so that you get the maximum benefit from your Pilates practice.

After your first private lesson, we’ll design a program based on your goals, needs, strengths, and weaknesses.

Call us at (970) 593-1442 to schedule your first lesson!

Why should I do Pilates at Diamond Peak PT, and not at a gym?

Our Pilates instructors have advanced training and expert-level anatomical knowledge. Their in-depth training includes how to prevent and rehabilitate injuries, which isn’t something you’ll find at most gyms or studios.

Most Pilates classes follow a set routine, but our style requires critical thinking on behalf of the instructor. Instructors address each participant’s weakest links (helping you get to the root of pain and mobility issues.)

When you do Pilates with Diamond Peak PT’s instructors, you know there’s a well-planned strategy behind the exercises.

What Pilates equipment do you have available?

Our Pilates studio is fully equipped with all of the tools you’ll need to develop greater strength, flexibility, and body awareness:

  • Reformers
  • Trapeze Table
  • Towers
  • Chairs
  • Ladder Barrel
  • Spine Corrector/Arcs
  • The Oov
  • Lots of fun props!

Is Pilates a good addition to physical therapy?

Pilates is an excellent way to transition out of physical therapy and is a helpful part of a comprehensive rehabilitation program. Through Pilates, you’ll feel more confident in your body movements while learning the ins and outs of healthy movement.

How long does it take to feel a difference in my body?

Here’s another quote from Joseph Pilates that rings true for our Pilates students:

  • In 10 sessions, you’ll feel the difference.
  • In 20 sessions, you’ll see the difference.
  • In 30 sessions, you’ll have a whole new body.
