How to make Pilates cheaper

In the post “Why is Pilates so Expensive?” I looked at reasons why Pilates is much more expensive than other forms of exercise methods.  But it is possible to make your Pilates practice more economical that it appears at first sight.
You will need to be more independent, but not only will you get so much more out of the lessons, you’ll definitely be making your money go further.

Create a Community: duet or group lessons

With friends or colleagues you can share the cost of lessons.  In a Duet Lesson you’ll still get individualised attention, though not as much as in a one on one lesson.  Similarly, working in a small group provides camaraderie and support.

Work Quickly At the Start – then think progression!

Commit to learning and assimilating the Fundamental Principles & Elementary Exercises quickly and then choose one or more of these practice modalities:

Complement the above with once weekly One on One lessons…

Then: Commit to your Health


Think of this approach like an education, rather than just an exercise session.  One key way to underline this way of thinking is to have clear, specific and well defined goals.  So, instead of generalised goals such as: “I want to tone up my abdominals” – you might want to cast it in Pilates terms: “Inside of three weeks, I want to master the Mat abdominal series: One Hundred, Single Leg Stretch, Double Leg Stretch, Single Straight Leg Stretch, Double Straight Leg Stretch and Crisscross… performing them all with flow and precision”.  This reflect clear commitment to a goal.  What will need to come next is how we’re going to attain that goal.
