Fitness and Exercise Safety


Please note the following important cautions before using this website or ordering products from our online catalog.

Pilates is a low-impact form of exercise that has been shown to provide beneficial health effects to those who practice it. However, not all exercises are suitable for everyone, and Pilates exercises — or any exercise program — may result in physical injury. Consult with your doctor before embarking on any type of exercise program.

To reduce the risk of injury, never force or strain during exercise. If you experience pain or discomfort during exercise, stop immediately and consult your doctor.

Certain special cautions apply to Pilates and all other exercise programs. For example, women who are menstruating should not practice inverted poses, back bends, or vigorous standing poses. Pregnant women should not practice twists or any abdominal tightening poses.

Other special cautions may apply to individuals with specific health issues. For that reason, before starting any kind of exercise program, you should consult your doctor to find out if any particular restrictions apply to you.
