One thought on “how fast will i lose weight with pilates?

  1. I find that with regular Pilates practice (2-5x/week, depending upon the type of Pilates I do and my current exercise regimen), my pants fit more loosely, but I personally don’t lose weight with Pilates alone. That said, I do see results.
    Joseph Pilates said that in 10 session you will feel a difference, in 20 you will see a difference, and in 30 you will have a whole new body. For the most part I found that true, although no one can escape their genetic destiny in terms of body type. That said, I moved in a different way and saw my body differently, so in that sense I did have a whole new body. My results from Pilates are subtle. My core (abs and lower back) are so much stronger. I have better posture, and I have less lower back pain and even tension. Pilates helps me train the muscles that pull in my tummy, acting like a natural “control-top” or girdle. I’ve seen some increases in flexibility, too. And Pilates has helped me gain confidence in my body.
    Weight loss is normally tied to these two things: proper diet and cardiovascular exercise. Pilates will help your abs become stronger and flatter, but it will not burn off a significant number of calories. You must get some cardio activity in, whether it’s walking, jogging, swimming, biking, aerobics, kickboxing, chasing kids, etc. If you’re not already active, aim for 30 min. 3-5x/week and work your way up to 60 and even 90 min. 3-5x/week. And you must eat healthy foods in proper amounts. (A little cheating is OK now and then, but in moderation!) Places like FitDay and SparkPeople are good for helping you get eating under control, if you need help with that. If you don’t, definitely make sure you ramp up the cardio, too. And do your Pilates 2-3 times a week. 🙂
