    Hi Sabine

    I am quite an active guy, as I play squash regularly, play badminton occasionally, having played it regularly for a number of years. I have in recent months re-started playing table tennis as well, which I played a lot during my school and university years back home in Pakistan. However, I am not fit enough and took up weekly gym classes at the club around 5 years ago, hoping to get fit. Paul, the trainer is very good but somehow it is not working enough for me. This is all the more difficult as I do not enjoy gym but feel that it has a positive impact. I just turned 57. Can pilates really work for me?

    Dear Nasser

    Many thanks for your comment.

    I’m sure Pilates can work for you. A wide spectrum of many athletes e.g. runners, tennis players, footballers, golfers and rugby players among others are now integrating Pilates into their training programs.

    Pilates is excellent for improving joint mobility, flexibility and strength. You need all of this to improve your game and more importantly to prevent injury.

    Just recently a Squash player said to me: “Strengthening my core, arms and legs with Pilates has really helped my movement as you have to constantly lunge turn and sprint”.

    Pilates is based on 6 principles – concentration, centring, control, precision, breath and flow – and once you master to apply them all to your training routine (not only to Pilates) it will help you to keep focused on the ball during the game which very often decides whether you win or lose a match.

    Pilates is a mind & body exercise technique and once you’re in a class you’ll realise it’s all about you and your movements on your mat and everything else around you melts into the background.

    Please let me know if you need any more information and feel free to come to a class on Saturdays at the Cumberland and give Pilates a try.

    Best wishes,

I’m a sporty type of person, I play tennis, I go for long walks on the Heath.

I’ve never enjoyed doing gym workouts or even Pilates mat work before I started going to Sabine’s classes.

She makes them so interesting by introducing small equipment from time to time and by playing a variety of beautiful background music.
