15 reasons to date a Pilates instructor
Would you limber up for love? We asked our friends at Ten Health & Fitness to share just a few of the many reasons why you really should consider dating a Pilates instructor
1. We’re family-friendly
Pilates instructor sounds so much more innocent and non-threatening than Personal Trainer when you introduce us to your parents.
2. We’re self-aware
We know ourselves well, both physically and emotionally. So, if we think you’re the one, you probably are.
3. We’re good listeners
You can’t train people well without being interested in them. Honestly, we can’t wait to hear all about that time you accidentally super-glued your ear to the car door.
4. We’ve got a great sense of humour
You can’t be a male Pilates instructor and take yourself too seriously.
5. We’ll make you a better morning person
We’re used to getting up with the lark to train people, and our early morning energy is infectious. At the very worst, you can expect more breakfast in bed!
6. Tough day at work? We’ll fix that
With its focus on posture and alignment, Pilates is the perfect antidote to office aches and pains. So, when you come home with your backache, tight shoulders or stiff neck, we’ll get rid of it in minutes.
7. We’re patient and supportive
Pilates teaches us that some skills take time and effort to master. Next time it takes you five goes to get those shelves up straight, we’ll be encouraging all the way.
8. We’ve got great stamina
You wouldn’t believe the positions we can hold. Or how long we can hold them.
9. We’re educated
Pilates instructors know anatomy, physiology, biomechanics, diet and psychology. And Latin. Gluteus maximus, piriformis, transversus abdominis – need we go on?
10. No ironing
We live in Lycra.
11. We can make you sweat in the bedroom
Or the hallway, the living room, the garden – we don’t need gyms or equipment to give you a killer full-body workout.
12. We’re very supple
13. It’s all about you, not us
Unlike the typical gym instructor, we’re more interested in watching you than checking ourselves out in the mirror.
14. We’re the whole package
Pilates is a great all-round workout. It gives us the grace of a barre instructor, the flexibility of a gymnast, the strength of a power lifter, and the ferocity of a boxing coach. All in one tightly-toned package!
15. You’ll stand taller when you’re with us
Partly because a Pilates instructor will always have an eagle eye on your posture (and partly because we usually look pretty good too!)
