Manifesto For The Pilates Industry

By | Business, Pilates industry, Pilates teaching, Uncategorized

These beliefs are our compass: We think they should be yours too

Challenging times call for clear vision, optimism, creativity and agility

  1. The value of an instructor lies not in equipment or premises but in the client’s experience, results, and emotions
  2. Classes are not a public service but an exchange of value and should be priced as such
  3. People can learn physical skills to a high level in a purely online format
  4. The present restrictions will probably continue until the end of 2020
  5. This situation represents a fundamental paradigm shift and a massive opportunity for Pilates instructors, studio owners and the Pilates industry
  6. After restrictions are lifted, things are unlikely to return to the way they were before: The industry worldwide will have new norms, new technologies, new competitors, new consumer expectations, and ultimately a vastly different competitive landscape
  7. We don’t know what the world or the Pilates industry will look like in 12 months, so the best way to prepare for success is to develop agility, resourcefulness and resilience
  8. Instructors and studio owners who wholeheartedly welcome the challenges and leap into the new opportunities inherent in these times will flourish

Online classes have many benefits for clients and instructors including:

  • greater class numbers without crowding
  • no travel time, transport cost, or parking required
  • because of no travel time, classes can potentially be done at any time of day including during work hours
  • increased opportunity for social connection
  • increased geographical catchment area
  • multiple clients in same family can workout together potentially for one price
  • no child-minding needed
  • no queue to sign-in or use the change room

Give yourself permission to try with Anula Maiberg

By | Uncategorized

 

Anula is an owner at Sixth Street Pilates in New York, a regular presenter on Pilates Anytime, and prolific presenter of workshops. She is co-author and instigator of Shift Happens with creative partner James Crader.

In addition to being a highly accomplished Pilates teacher, Anula Maiberg is a walking paradox. She is at one and the same time ironic and guileless, simple and subtle, dark and optimistic, artful and down to earth.

Most of all though, she is a deep thinker when it comes to Pilates, and the way she thinks about the movement flows over into the social and cultural context of Pilates today. Anula also has the knack of summarising the human experience with clarity and simplicity. She is a master of soundbites. And there are plenty in this interview.

Are Expensive Running Shoes Really Safer?

By | Uncategorized
There is a widespread belief among recreational athletes that running shoes play an important role in injury prevention by providing cushioning. Custom-fitted shoes and newer shoes are generally thought to provide better protection than older, less expensive shoes.

Surprisingly, scientific evidence points in the opposite direction.
