A Guide For Buying PBB Method Pilates & Barre Equipment

A Guide For Buying PBB Method Pilates & Barre Equipment

There are various kinds of equipment that you can use during your PBB Pilates and Barre workouts that can complement your movements, making them more challenging but effective! It can often be daunting to know where to begin when you are wanting to buy the correct equipment for your Pilates and Barre workouts which is why I wanted to tell you more about my top favourite pieces of equipment and why I love using them so much. 

Pilates Ball
The Pilates ball is a versatile piece of equipment that can add challenge and variety to your Pilates and Barre workouts. It can be used to support your back during exercises, help you engage your core, or as a tool for balance training. When performing exercises on the Pilates ball, you will need to engage your core muscles and maintain balance, which can help improve stability and overall body control.

Resistance Bands
Resistance bands are excellent tools for building strength, improving flexibility, and increasing range of motion. They come in various strengths, and you can use them to perform a range of exercises that target different parts of the body. Resistance bands are also incredibly portable and easy to pack, so you can take them with you wherever you go.

PBB Anti-Slide Socks
PBB anti-slide socks are specially designed for Pilates and Barre workouts, and they can help you maintain balance during your exercises. The socks have grips on the bottom that prevent your feet from slipping, which can be beneficial when performing challenging movements. They are also incredibly comfortable and can provide additional support for your feet. You can buy them at the PBB studio in Fulham or on my website!

Ankle Weights
Ankle weights are excellent tools for increasing the intensity of your Pilates and Barre workouts. They can be used to target the muscles in your legs, hips, and glutes, and can help build strength and endurance. However, it's essential to use ankle weights safely, as using too much weight can cause injury. If you feel like you want more of a burn, try using your ankle weights with your resistance bands! 

Pilates Rings
The Pilates ring, also known as the magic circle, is a versatile piece of equipment that can help improve your posture, balance, and overall body control. It is one of my all time favourites! It can be used to target specific muscles and can make challenging movements more accessible. Pilates rings are also incredibly lightweight and portable, making them perfect for at-home workouts.

Light Dumbbells
Notice how I have said “light” instead of just “dumbbells”. Light dumbbells are great for adding resistance to your Pilates and Barre workouts. They can be used to target specific muscle groups, and they are an excellent tool for building strength and toning your body. However, it's crucial to use the right weight, as using weights that are too heavy can cause injury or overexert your muscles. Now don’t get me wrong, using a heavier weight in a Pilates and Barre class is doable, however, I strongly suggest building your muscles up to a point where a heavier load won’t cause injury. 

Incorporating the right equipment in your PBB Pilates and Barre workouts can help you achieve your fitness goals efficiently. Each type of equipment has unique benefits, and the best way to determine which is right for you is to try them out for yourself. Experiment with different pieces of equipment and find the ones that work best for your body and fitness level.
