I hope you are having a great week and classes are busy.
Band Ideas For FP
Activation/Resistance bands not only provide the muscle with increased resistance but can be useful to assist and ensure correct alignment for many exercises.
Whether you want to prevent lower back, hip, knee or even foot and ankle pain or you want to run faster, cycle further or lift more, you’ve got to get those glutes activated and working efficiently.
By using a band for squats, lunges, bridges and side lying work will help engage the glute medius to stabilise hips and this can, in turn, help the glute maximus also fire better and become stronger.
The band is great too because it applies constant pressure, even increasing pressure at the point in the movement where you are the strongest.
Because of the nature of the bands, the range of motion on many of these moves and the PUMP the band creates really helps establish that mind-body connection and use metabolic stress to drive muscle growth. Perfect for progressive Pilates classes.
Business, Marketing & Promotion Social Media Tips
Instagram is the fastest growing social media platform with thousands of people in your area using the app DAILY.
Are you using it effectively to grow your brand and attract more customers?
To showcase your skills as an Instructor and for prospective customers to work out if what you offer is for them, clips of your classes and you instructing is a brilliant way to promote your services.
“But my people don’t want me to film them”
I get this. FP is intimate and quiet and many people just don’t want to be filmed doing shoulder bridges from various angles 🙂
So here is what I do.
Every few weeks I have a small group of 5/6 regulars of my class members (who LOVE to be filmed) stay behind and we “stage” a mini class of me teaching a few exercises. It takes about 15 minutes.
A friend films using my iphone and I use that content for IG and Facebook.

I hope that helps.
Wishing you a fabulous week and look forward to seeing you on training very soon.
