THERAPEUTIC EXERCISE AND REHABILITATION
We specialize in therapeutic exercise programs including Therapeutic Pilates and rehabilitation for back, shoulder and hips after surgery or injury.
We use Therapeutic Pilates as a foundation with focus on neutral spine and spinal stabilization. We also incorporate exercises influenced by many years of work in the health and fitness industry and years of continuing education (see biographies for information on qualifications).
Our focus in sessions is improving awareness of proper postural alignment during exercise, spinal stability, movement efficiency and recruitment of muscles that stabilize the spine. The goal is improved muscular endurance, shoulder and hip mobility and overall physical condition. The pace of progression to more advanced exercises will be based on individual adaptation to exercises.
Our studio offers Pilates, various group fitness classes, specialized group classes, personal training and active rehabilitation. We keep group classes small in order to maintain quality and safety and to give appropriate attention to each participant to ensure proper exercise technique.
Pilates Plus Fitness is a place for being active while having fun and feeling comfortable. We strive to provide an environment that is safe and non-intimidating. We believe that exercise should be a good experience and should be individualized for each participant’s abilities and postural alignment. We avoid the “no pain no gain” mentality and instead focus on correct exercise form and technique.
We work with the medical community and, based on information you provide about your medical history, we may require consultation with your Physiotherapist, Family Physician, or other medical professional.
