Yoga and Pilates in East London

Pilates in Hackney

Spring season is just the right time to give you some tips if you want to do something for your fitness in London. It’s not too late if you want to lose the one or the other pound before summer!

From my experience, a lot of folks, especially those who have never gone to a gym are shying away from the idea having to sweat doing some intensive exercises.

The good thing is that you won’t have to all those types of tedious exercises if you want to get in shape. It is actually scientifically proven that low impact exercising such as walking, stretching, yoga or Pilates are equally effective, if not better in the long term!

My tip is that you could look into Pilates or yoga classes here in Hackney. I always enjoy those classes and like them a lot better than simply going to the gym. Pilates classes can also be a lot of fun when you can exercise with like-minded folks. The big advantage here is that you will have a qualified trainer, unlike when you go to a gym where you could be lost not knowing what type of equipment to use and how to use it effectively.

If you ask me, I’d rather spend a couple of bucks more for a class with a good trainer.

If you are looking for Pilates in Hackney, my tip is that you check out any of the smaller, not so known fitness studios first. From my experience, those guys are much more dedicated and also a lot friendlier as compared to any of those large fitness chains in London. Yes, it might be the case that you will have to look a little bit longer to find a good gym in Hackney, but it will ultimately be worth it!
