Tip 1: choose and visit some places
Before, finalizing on any option and starting off straight away, you should note down a few options. Make some calls to these studios and meet up with the trainers there. Take a tour around the premise to examine the equipment and overall place.Have a chat with the trainers to get a first impression about their attitudes and so on.
Tip 2: Facts about training
The next tip is to inquire about their certification and licenses they’ve obtained. A certified instructor will be able to provide you with the best advice and support at the studio. This will also hint you about their training and familiarity with the equipment. Ask if they provide any manuals or guides such as Pilates DVD to try them at home.
Tip 3: Do they communicate with you?
A positive and enthusiastic attitude is the key for successfully following fitness training with the instructor. If they aren’t corporative or unable to understand your needs and goals then, he or she isn’t the person to be trained under. For instance if you want to work on your posture (spine) or abdomen, you should emphasize on it. Yet, if the trainer is not taking any interest to know what you want, forget about visiting that place again.
Tip 4: Equipment, amenities
Another point to consider is the equipment that you would be working with. Furthermore, do they have just one or two or a range of exercising gears, guides (e.g. Pilates DVD), etc.? If it’s the first time you’re visiting a Pilate’s studio, you should run a bit of research. As a fact, you would know what to expect when you step foot inside the premise. Does the studio have changing rooms? Or, are there benches to rest or lockers to keep the belongings?
The aforementioned tips might be really helpful to you, when you decide to start the Pilates fitness program.
