Our expert says:
I think you already doubt the benefit of such a high intensity Pilates class - I would be extrememly careful doing "over the top" classes. Remember that you don't need pain to have gain - Pilates is unique in that it does isolate and then integrate the function of a very important set of deep postural and protective muscles. There are two ways in which to switch off those muscles - go fast or go very hard! Pilates is meant to be challenging and create flowing effortless movement habits.
Be thoughtful and precise with each movement, if you are unsure ask what the intention of the exercise is. If your trainer can't answer that, find another one who can.
Good luck and stay Pilates nuts!
