If weight loss is part of your goals, Pilates will definitely support that. I just emphasize restoring health first, not taking unhealthy shortcuts to lose weight at any cost. You can be fit and plus size!
I have created for you a completely private Pilates experience in a tranquil, private, home studio environment. You deserve a welcoming, supportive environment to learn Stott Pilates. That is why I specialize in Pilates for beginners and plus size individuals.
Most personal trainers, frankly, do not know what to do when they are presented with plus size client. And, since everything looks like a nail when you have got a hammer, they will put out their "athletic training" hammer - for better or worse. Plus size beginners should not be challenged like professional athletes! FOR GOODNESS' SAKE! (And, for safety's sake!)
My goal at the Pilates Resort of Oklahoma City is to introduce people who would have formerly considered themselves unlikely candidates for Pilates to all the benefits that a regular Pilates practice will bring them.
Why is Pilates the best exercise for plus-size beginners?
Pilates is an effective, yet gentle and enjoyable system of exercise. This makes it perfect for the non-athlete; the Pilates method is particularly suited for people who feel too inactive, too overweight, too uncoordinated, or too out-of-shape to begin a normal fitness routine.

What’s different about the Pilates Resort?
Pilates is unique in its vision of adapting Pilates safely for the plus size body. Often would-be plus size practitioners of mind-body fitness modalities such as yoga and Pilates feel overwhelmed by the level of even beginner-designated classes. Honestly, even several of the Beginning exercises from the Stott repertoire should not be attempted by a person who is not extremely fit, highlighting this interesting shift in Pilates from physical therapy to boutique fitness. Luckily, Mary Gordon’s Plus Size Pilates has come to the rescue, coupling “Pilates” and “Plus Size” in a beautiful pairing.
A person who is already fit can perform any type of exercise they like. A person who is out-of-shape requires the adaptive, low-impact strengthening offered by the Pilates method. For the person who is interested in also reducing their levels of body fat, Pilates must be coupled with a low-impact form of cardiovascular exercise, such as swimming, and a metabolically appropriate diet. This trifecta of eating a proper diet, building muscle through Pilates, and burning calories through safe, appropriate cardio is your best fitness plan. Pilates alone is not sufficient for weight loss, but it is a necessary component in getting back into shape.
