It’s the start of a whole, brand sparkling new year and I bet that just like me you’ve made resolutions to get fitter, trimmer and toned-up. If you can’t get out, afford a pricey gym membership or prefer exercising in the comfort of your own living room you’re in luck. Now Pilates classes can come to you with Pilates on Demand. Here’s my review…

Pilates on Demand: review on mummy rates it

No more excuses

We all come up with reasons why we can’t exercise but with Pilates on Demand these can’t stick. For example, if you can’t get out the house because you have a young child you can play the class while they’re napping or playing. Or if you travel for work why not play a class or two in your hotel room? Time is also no excuse. If you only have a speedy few minutes to spare – no problemo. Classes run from 10 minutes up to to 1 hour so you can choose a quick workout when time is precious and a lengthier one when you’ve got more time on your hands. Forget boredom too. The classes are updated regularly and if you don’t think you’ve got the space to stretch out there’s even a session that needs less room.
Experts at your fingertips

Pilates on Demand is a paid-for membership site where fully qualified instructors guide beginners, advanced, pregnant and post-natal exercisers through Pilates videos. There is a huge selection of classes to choose from (over 100) including ones focussing on abdominals, posture, desk/work station, third trimester, quick morning class as well as all the regular Pilates classes.

How I got on…

I’ve been doing Pilates for a while now and enjoy the benefits of improved posture and a tighter stomach. As soon as I slack off for a few weeks I can feel myself start to round up. Full of enthusiasm, I enjoyed being able to trawl through the library of Pilates classes at the touch of a mouse – picking out the ones that took my fancy. I also liked the way that I could search for a class by time and exercise level.

The first I tried was a basic 30 minute class with instructor Holly Murray. Even though I’ve been doing Pilates for a while I found this class pretty challenging which meant I couldn’t do some of the exercises. A few goes later and I found it much easier.

My favourite class was the 10 minute Quick Morning Class, designed to wake up and stretch your body in preparation for the day. I’m getting a few aches and pains at the moment and this class has been really beneficial and is a great way to limber up and start the day.

A subscription to www.pilatesod.com would be a great way to start the New Year. If you want to try it out before signing up you can opt for the free 14-day trial. Subscriptions are £12.95 per month or £116.55 per year.

*I was given a 3 months subscription to Pilates on Demand. Words and opinions my own.
