How Long Does Pilates Take To Show Results?

Would you like to look and stay fit but loathe the idea of hitting the gym for weight lifting? Do you want to be physically fit and don’t have the commitment and enthusiasm required to enrol in a gym? Pilates may be just the solution for you! Pilates is a form of exercise and body conditioning that can give great health and fitness results. But how long will that take? Read on to find out:

How Long Does Pilates Take To Show Results?

Just to quote the physical trainer who invented pilates, “In 10 sessions you will feel the difference, in 20 you will see the difference, and in 30 you’ll have a brand new body.” It’s indeed a famous Joseph Pilates phrase, but like all health and fitness training, the results differ from one person to the next. Here are some determinants:  

Key Factors Affecting the Time Taken for Pilates Results To Show

1). Length And Frequency of Your Pilates Exercise Program

Just like any other method of keeping fit, you cannot just do a single session of Pilates and expect visible changes. You must be consistent and work several times a week to be able to see results.  For starters, you can start two times and progress as many times as possible in order to get the expected result. 

If you desire to change your body tone, and shape, or feel fitter, you need to be consistent. Not just that but the longer the length and more frequent your exercise program, the faster you can realise your health and fitness goals. Let us help you find a program that can help you get there faster. 

2). Type of Pilates

Pilates has two different forms of exercise. These include mat Pilates and machine Pilates. These two kinds greatly differ in terms of results because they differ in mechanism and intensity. Let’s take a look at the two separately:

  • Mat Pilates

Mat Pilates makes use of your weight as resistance and can be done at any place. It can actually be compared to yoga as they have similarities. For beginners, it is advisable to start with a mat Pilate session in order to assimilate the body to the stretches. 

This form of Pilates is also considered safer in preventing injuries while working out. However, the results will take more time than the machine form. You can however get to your goals faster when you constantly follow through with the timings and the sessions.

  • Machines/Reformer Pilates

This involves the use of machines to work out but for you to advance in reformer Pilates you must have done mat Pilates. You must have an instructor while using the machines. With machines, it is much quicker and the result will be evident in a matter of days.

3) Body Type/Personal Goals

For the best results, we recommend that you consider taking both forms of pilates at the same time. It is worth noting however that body types differ and exercise goals vary. As such, the results might be different from one person to the other.

Final Thoughts

Pilates is a great activity that’s possible from home with a mat or at a studio. How much time it takes you to accomplish results depends upon different factors, as discussed above.
