Move Better

Dynamic Reformer Pilates is ideal for improving and reinforcing movement patterns. So we’ve created a series of specialist Reformer-based Move Better classes to help you move more effectively, freely and safely in your other workouts and in everyday life.

Over 80% of UK adults suffer the adverse effects of today’s largely sedentary and posturally-challenged working and living patterns. Ten’s Dynamic Reformer Pilates programme is ideal for reversing these effects by improving and reinforcing the movement patterns that enable us to move in the way our bodies were designed to – effectively, powerfully, freely and without risk of injury.

Where injury or pain is stopping you from moving well - or even moving and exercising at all - our in-house Physiotherapy and Sports Massage teams are highly skilled at treating not just the injury or issue, but also its underlying cause. More.

Why we need to move better

We sit too much and we don’t move enough. And when we do, the movement pattern is often inefficient, unnatural and frequently unsafe.

Sitting

Creates postural and musculoskeletal imbalance, which often leads to injury, pain and dysfunction.

Lack of movement

Creates a range of issues including loss of range of movement, bone-density and reduced cardiovascular fitness, along with weight gain and obesity, and a number of metabolic and circulatory conditions.

Moving badly

Postural/lifestyle based imbalances have crept in. Office life, smartphones, high heels and handbags are just a few of the elements of our 21st Century life that have forced our bodies to develop unnatural and potentially damaging movement patterns. These place stresses on our muscles and joints that our bodies were not designed to cope with. We no longer move naturally and need to relearn the movement patterns that we were born to perform effectively, efficiently and safely.


"In the fitness industry there’s way too much focus on the intensity and challenge of workouts and nowhere near enough on the quality of the movement within them"
