How to Choose Between a Private 1:1 & Group Pilates Class

Starting out in Pilates training is an exciting experience; but it can also be an intimidating one. 

But there’s only one true way of knowing how it will make you feel – you simply have to try it!

But say you’ve just come upon our Dynamic Pilates website – you might find yourself puzzling over where to start! As a premium Sydney Pilates provider, you get a choice to take up a private class as your own truly individual introduction to Pilates, or a Beginner’s group class. 

This blog will help you to figure out which option is best for you!

Comparing the Main Differences Between Private & Group Classes

What better way to determine what works for you than to place the options side by side and compare what each offers? 

Below we highlight some of the key differences for you to consider before booking in your first session.

A Private Session Is Personalised, While Group Classes Are More General.

If you want a Pilates exercise program that is developed around your individual needs and goals, private sessions will serve you best. However, if you don’t mind a universal approach, so long as you are moving and stretching, group classes could be for you.

Private Sessions Can Work Around Your Schedule, While Group Classes Happen At Set Times.

Maybe you’re an entrepreneur with a hectic schedule, or your studies are demanding. It can be challenging to make it on time for set class times. If so, Private sessions may be the solution for you. If you have the leisure of time, you can slot into a group class instead.

Private Sessions Form A Solid Foundation, While Group Classes Need You To Have A Bit Of Background.

Trying anything new can be challenging, and Pilates training is no exception! Booking a private lesson may be a good idea for setting a solid foundation of technique that you can build on. Once you get the hang of it, you can consider progressing to  group sessions.

Private Sessions Are Secluded, While Group Classes Are A More Social Environment.

Not a fan of people? There’s nothing wrong with that. You can choose to train with only your Instructor in a private session. Or, if you love to make new friends and feel supported, a Dynamic Pilates group class will definitely be more up your alley.

Decide for Yourself, Based on the Merit of Each Option

Taking all of the above into consideration, you must reflect on your goals, personality and preferences to choose the option that resonates with you. There’s no wrong or right decision. 

Maybe you want to challenge yourself, or perhaps you’d rather ease into it. It’s entirely up to you.
