Questions you need to ask before purchasing your next Pilates
Pilates is a popular and growing form of exercise
that has proven itself to be one of the best ways of getting an
overall excellent workout. Not only will Pilates help to improve
your core strength, it helps to reduce your stress levels, improves
your balance and your posture – not to mention your breathing.
Pilates has come a long way since Joseph Pilates first pioneered
this innovative form of exercise. Today it is possible to buy all
kinds of Pilates equipment to further enhance and improve your basic
Pilates routine. However, before you go out to purchase your next
Pilates equipment here are a few questions that you should ask.
If you are buying one of the bigger pieces of
Pilates equipment such as a Pilates Reformer, The Cadillac or the
Wunda Chair, make sure to enquire if the brand or piece in which
you are interested is a safe machine. Find out if it is sturdy and
if it is quiet when it is being used. Generally the discount brands
tend to be made from inferior quality parts that tend to make them
less stable and noisier. Not only can such defects distract from
your workout but it can also be dangerous. Find out if the Pilates
equipment you want needs to be placed on any special type of flooring
such as an anti-static mat or on a hard surface. Compare the quality
of the brand you like with others; if you must invest a little bit
more – it will be worth it because it will last longer.
Should you decide to purchase your next Pilates
equipment from an online seller then ask them about their refund
policy. If they do not have a good refund policy then go somewhere
else. Ask specific questions about the exact size of the equipment
including the thickness of the base legs and whether or not it has
been refurbished or if it is new. As you will essentially be buying
the equipment based on a picture of it on the internet and on faith,
it is important to have every one of your questions satisfied before
plunking down your money.
After all, it is best to be perfectly informed
before investing in what should be a long-term investment.
