Sometimes we are asked – is there an age limit for your Pilates classes or when can my son/daughter start taking Pilates.
Like many situations, it depends. 😀
For classes, we do have a minimum age requirement of 14. Athletic teens generally do well in class once they are past the age of 14. Very occasionally, we allow someone younger in class. That is ok when a parent is also attending and when that younger client has experience from private training.
For kids under 14, private training is recommended. For younger children especially, private training is a must. Kids under 12 often don’t even fit on the machine – we need to modify all of the machine settings and add extra blocks so their feet reach the footbar.
