The media says 2023’s the Year of Pilates, but we’ve been fans for decades You will almost certainly have heard of Pilates. You may even have done it. Perhaps you’ve seen that we offer it here at Grosvenor and been intrigued. Maybe you even have a niggle, a pain or a soreness – and you wonder if it might help. Please read on – at Grosvenor, we passionately believe in the benefits of Pilates. We feel that it is the one fitness “fad” that has definitely proven itself and deservedly passed into the mainstream of physical programmes. (The Royal Osteoporosis Society, among many other respected bodies, promotes Pilates.)

 

What is it?

Pilates is a mat-based sequence of planned, co-ordinated movements, which strengthen, stretch and condition the body, as well as promoting balance, bone health and body awareness, with injury prevention or rehabilitation and mood enhancement as important by-products.

 

Who can do it?

Anyone can do Pilates; you go at your own pace; but it’s progressive, so gradually you will do more. Whatever your age or starting physical condition, Pilates can be a major factor in you reclaiming your physical abilities and thus your physical freedom. We would go so far as to say that Pilates is the ideal workout for our post-Covid selves, for those of us who realise, more than ever, the importance of taking responsibility for our own well-being. Whilst we all tried to keep a fitness programme going during the pandemic – didn’t we?! – attempting to follow a workout on Youtube just isn’t a patch on the truly supportive atmosphere of an in-person class – especially one as inclusive as Pilates. Sound too good to be true?

“Pilates has greatly improved my balance and posture, and it has taught me to use my core muscles effectively in everyday tasks. All this is thanks to the Return to Fitness classes at the Grosvenor Clinic, and especially Karen’s care and expertise in selecting and grading the exercises. Many, many thanks.” – Jim

“Grosvenor have put me back together so many times over the years, and I am grateful to Jo and Karen for neck treatment, treatment for sciatica and recovery from a broken bone, plus foot problems. Always good advice and effective exercise plans.”

 

Why consider Pilates at Grosvenor?

Peace of mind: we are with you every step of the way. We won’t just book you into a class and leave you to find your own way, we will work to understand your starting physical condition, and talk you through your every movement, on your entry into the world of Pilates.

Experienced eyes: our instructors have decades of Pilates experience each, and this, together with our maximum class size of 8, means that you are always working under their watchful eyes. You do the movements correctly – and therefore safely.

It’s your journey: we recommend Pilates to many of our physiotherapy, clinical massage and rehabilitation clients, and we are delighted when they no longer need those other services because of the all-round conditioning that this one programme provides. With the new year upon us, Pilates classes are filling up faster than ever – please contact us now to book your slot or join a waiting list.

I attended the clinic at 28 weeks pregnant after suffering with my back - Lindsey was so so helpful, informative and made me feel completely comfortable. Would highly recommend.

I’ve used Grosvenor for physio, acupuncture and podiatrist services on a number of occasions over the years for myself and my sporty kids and always been really pleased with the results. Friendly, approachable and importantly provided good advice that fixed the problems we presented with. Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend or return if required.

Had treatment with Jo following replacement knee surgery and this was excellent. Had no hesitation returning a couple of years later for a back problem and again I cannot fault their service.

Really happy with the results of my treatment plan meant I could get back to the things I enjoy. Would highly recommend

I had four sessions of physio and acupuncture with Jo who then suggested I might benefit from seeing her colleague Louise for some clinical massage. The treatments I have received at the Grosvenor Clinic have meant my neck has been pain free for the first time in a number of years. All of the staff are so friendly and explain everything that is happening so you have confidence in all aspects of your treatment.

I have visited the clinic three times now for an extremely painful trapped nerve, when I first called up in a panic they accommodated me very last minute and got me treated and rebooked for acupuncture with Jo and I can’t thank her enough! The relief I have had since being to the clinic is amazing. Can’t recommend enough!
