The Pilates Resort of Oklahoma City seeks 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.
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.
Pilates with Equipment is much more fun than Mat-Based Pilates

What’s different about the Pilates Resort?
The Pilates Resort specializes in both the Stott Pilates and Plus Size Pilates methods. Stott is widely considered the gold standard of Pilates practice. It is a top tier training and certification program with extensive requirements. The most valuable benefit of Stott Pilates is the focus on proper anatomical knowledge. A personal trainer without this knowledge can be dangerous. Stott recognizes this and thus, knowledge of anatomy plays a large part in the Stott program of training. Another benefit of the Stott approach is their specialty course which even other certification schools recommend; namely, Injuries and Special Populations. This specialty course focuses on adapting the Stott Pilates material for any injuries or special needs that may be encountered.
Plus Size 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.
