Pilates

Why Pilates?

Developed in the early 20th century by Joseph Pilates, “Pilates” is a form of exercise
which uses special movements designed to improve physical strength, flexibility,
posture and enhance mental awareness.

At Jeremy Bingham Pilates we have a modern approach and introduce Pilates balls,
spikey balls, resistance bands, medicine balls and dumb bells to aid your progression.
We follow Pilates methods and sequences to provide a holistic approach that targets all
muscle groups in the body whilst working on posture, functionality and flexibility.

Joseph Pilates 1883 - 1967

Can anyone do Pilates?

Pilates is completely customisable for people with varying fitness and health levels. At

review and tailor our approach to make sure you start to feel benefits.

My clients include:

    sufferers – we see many people who’ve been suffering from back, shoulder, hip
    or knee pain.

    as they age and often for those living more sedentary lifestyles.
  • Elite sportspeople who want to improve core strength, flexibility and stamina.

    pregnancy.
