Fitness Pilates is a modern, research based group fitness class created for the apparently healthy adult. It is neither remedial, clinical nor is it designed for rehabilitation. Fitness Pilates utilises all of the principals and includes many of the mat work exercises in traditional Pilates, but offers modifications, diversifications and updated exercise prescription to provide a controlled body conditioning program appropriate for the general public.
How does it fit in with other Pilates Programs
Fitness Pilates is a complimentary class aimed at all levels, ages and abilities. It is general level incorporating basic Pilates techniques and exercises in a non intimidating and easy to follow way. Fitness Pilates is designed to sit along side clinical Pilates sessions and small group classes whose aim is rehabilitation therefore becoming an excellent feeder class for members wanting a more specialised form of Pilates. It is a cost effective way of training that includes marketing and business ideas to help you set up and prosper in this area. Ultimately, it is custom designed and targets YOU. Every exercise, sequence, structure and lecture on the course has been thoroughly tried and tested.

This has been done to help people come to the right class for them and for them to get the right attention during that class.
It has also been done to help people progress and improve.
Many think that because they have done a few sessions they are pro’s, which is generally not the case.
So, our Instructors will be there to help. If the class isn’t suitable for that person (ie beginner coming to intermediate / advanced class), they can recommend a more suitable class to help build up ability before progressing on to a harder class.
Equally if someone is capable of doing a harder class, this will also be suggested.
Please do not get upset if this happens, it is only done so you get the best out of your training at Bubalu.
If you are unsure of what level you are suited to, please ask your Instructor.

A great way to get back in shape after having a baby and meet other Mums.
If post natal, you need to have been signed off for exercise by your Midwife or Doctor for before being able to exercise at Bubalu.
A general guide here is approx a minimum of 6 weeks for normal childbirth & 12 weeks for Caesarians.
We do insist that you do the Pre / Post Natal classes to get used to exercising and get a base level of fitness before doing any of the other classes at Bubalu.
We do not want to turn people away from classes, so if unsure, please call 01179245381 and speak to Mike.
After doing some Friday classes and as long as baby isn’t crawling, rolling, or walking, you can also bring baby into these other classes;
- Fitness Pilates – Monday 1.30pm, Thursday 10.30am and Sunday 10am (all with pre / post natal qualified Instructors – adviseable to bring a pillow for prone exercises and call 01179245381, so we are aware of your situation). See the relevant sections for more info.

People have brought their babies in their buggies into other morning classes after doing some Pre and Post Natal classes, which is cool, but please call 01179245381 and speak to Mike beforehand to make sure there is space and it is ok for that class. Also please be aware as they are normal classes, they can be loud and babies will have to remain in their buggies.
