What is the difference between clinical exercise therapy sessions and Pilates classes?

Equipment Pilates

Our clinical exercise therapy sessions (CETS)  run throughout the day on the hour. Here, participants carry out their own individual, physiotherapy prescribed programs integrating Pilates influenced, floor and gym based exercises. These concurrent exercise sessions are supervised by physiotherapists and suitable for rehabilitation of injuries or treatment of conditions like back or neck pain, poor balance and poor posture. Revive also runs Equipment Pilates classes on a variety of Pilates equipment including the cadilliac, ladder barrel, reformer, spine corrector and wunda chair for individuals without injury to maintain mobility, strength and fitness. We also run mat and reformer Pilates classes in the studio - these are carried out on mats on the floor with the occasional use of some small equipment and reformers that add resistance to movement via springs.  All participants carry out the same exercises in matwork and reformer Pilates so it is more suitable for people without injuries or pain.

Revive Class Etiquette

Bookings are required for all classes due to minimum and maximum numbers.
