Cape Town is often thought of as having a ‘clicky’ culture but the Southern Suburbs, in particular Claremont, are filled with ladies who love social gatherings, getting together, meeting new people and feeling as if they are a part of something. I have a few groups of clients who have been together for about 3 years now in the same Pilates class. They have grown together, motivated each other and strengthened together. They party together and meet each other for coffee. This is what makes Studio2Pilates different. The classes are small, no more than 5 ladies in a class and I don’t encourage drop-ins. I like the group to develop together and find great satisfaction in placing ladies in a class that is not only suited to them on a beginner/intermediate/advanced level, but on a social level too.
I find this way works for various reasons. It helps to keep the ladies motivated and its like escaping the house or work to meet with good friends and exercise at the same time!
But it’s not just Pilates we do together. From wine tasting to book club to end of year functions, we find an excuse to get together even when we are not exercising!
What could be more motivating?!
