Why choose goPhysio?

Don’t just take our word for it, we have hundreds of happy patients willing to share their thoughts on their goPhysio experiences. You can read more reviews here.

I have been going to goPhysio for several years and think they are brilliant! I had a lot of physio leading up to & after back surgery, and have also been attending goPhysio’s pilates classes. These are run in a lovely clean modern studio, and the classes are nicely small. Roz is also fab – always moving around the class to make sure we are doing things right, and moving bits of you if they are in the wrong place! Really glad I found goPhysio.

FAQs

What exactly is Pilates?

Pilates is a system of exercises designed to improve physical strength, flexibility, and posture, and enhance mental awareness. It was developed in the early 1900’s by the German born, Joseph Pilates, who believed physical and mental strength were closely connected. Pilates can be done as part of a small group, larger class or on a 1-2-1 basis. There are lots of classes to choose from – some are mat based and others may use specialist equipment.

How do I choose a Pilates class?

There are lot’s of different types of Pilates and classes to choose from, such as Mat, Reformer, Fitness or PiYo Pilates. If you’re new to Pilates a good place to start is a mat based class. This is the bread and butter of Pilates and the basis on which all other Pilates is built. We progress our mat classes from beginner through to advanced at a pace that suits each individual.

If you’ve had an injury who better to teach you than a qualified Physiotherapist or Sports and Rehabilitation Therapist? We integrate all our knowledge and experience into the classes to make sure you progress at the right pace, are challenged appropriately and don’t risk re-injuring yourself. You’ll also get on hand advice from our Clinicians. 

You may also want to consider how many people are in the class. The key to Pilates exercises is the quality of the movement. To gain benefit you have to do the exercises correctly. Smaller classes enable the instructor to give individual guidance. We’ve actually had people come to us after suffering an injury by doing Pilates incorrectly in a large class. At goPhysio, we have 5 or less people in our classes.

Why do I need to have a Pilates induction before I start a class?

If you haven’t already seen us at goPhysio and want to join our studio classes, you will need to come and see one of our Pilates Instructors before you join a class. This is essential so we can screen you for any injuries or particularly weak areas, find out exactly what you want to achieve by coming to Pilates and teach you the basics before you start. This is commonplace for any Clinical Pilates classes. This 30 minute appointment will really help you get 110% out of the classes.

Whats the difference between mat and Reformer Pilates?

Both are Pilates, but it’s more down to personal preference. Mat is based on an exercise mat in a variety of positions and uses the weight of your limbs and pieces of equipment for resistance and core training i.e. resistance bands, magic circle. Whereas Reformer pilates uses a reformer bed and resistance springs / pulleys to help improve mobility, resistance and core strength. Both are very good, it’s a question of personal preference and which is more suited to your specific needs. Just ask your clinical pilates instructor at goPhysio for more information and bespoke advice.
