Good for someone w Pilates experience. Wish it had audio
This app will not teach you the proper way to do Pilates. However if you are experienced in Pilates, this app is a good way to get in a quick workout. The pictures illustrate the movement in a very rough way. But did not explain the nuances how to do it or how to prevent from getting hurt. Which are both very important to doing exercise properly. I would not recommend this app to somebody new to Pilates because it’s possible to injure yourself if you don’t use proper form. I think an option for voiceover that talks you through the movement and what to do to make it effective and what not to do to prevent injury would be very helpful. The animated movements could be more accurate too, Including the actual timing. The movements are shown very sped up which is unrealistic and potentially unsafe for people trying to keep up with it. In summary I will use it occasionally as someone who known Pilates well, but this does replace a real instructor or a regular workout schedule.
Good tool for a consistent short workout
Heads up: you get 2 free 5-min workouts, then you have to pay $8 to unlock the rest. I’m usually cheap and would just do the 2 free ones over and over, but because they’re so short that’s not really an option here. However, for me it’s worth it - this is a good tool to keep me doing an exercise every day since it’s only 5 mins. I feel lightly worked out after I finish, and Pilates appears to have a good combo of body weight training and dynamic stretching. When you upgrade, it allows you to play music through the app, although the song picker is terrible (to update the songs it wipes the list clean you have to re-select a new list from nothing).
Not gonna lie, it’s a good app. I’m a softball pitcher and my coach recommended I started doing pilates daily to increase my speed. After only 2 days there was a huge difference in how fast I was throwing. However, I have 2 problems with the app. First, only the first 2 days are free, and after that you have to pay $7.99 which really isn’t worth it when there are so many other apps and videos you can follow along with for free. Second, I really enjoy playing music when I exercise and this app pauses your music every time you start a workout. I’ll probably be downloading a different app because $7.99 with no music isn’t worth my time or money.
