Clinical Pilates

Trimetrics prides itself as having been the first clinic in the Lower Mainland and Canada to introduce the concept of combining Physiotherapy and Pilates as an evidence based, effective rehabilitation tool. Due to its success in returning many patients to their previous level of health and fitness or beyond, Trimetrics has been an industry leader in supporting many other clinics province-wide in developing this powerful work.

What is Pilates?

The pilates method, originally called “contrology” is a system of movement and therapeutic exercises developed over a span of 60 years by German born “Joseph H Pilates”.

The method executed with precision, works by toning and rebalancing the muscles around joints. It stimulates circulation, improves joint range of motion and facilitates alignment of the skeletal system. Pilates also creates new neuromuscular patterns, improves coordination and enhances body awareness. The Pilates method helps prevent further injury and reduces chronic pain.

The elegance of the work makes it adaptable and effective for anybody of any age and furthermore, this model is now fully supported by current neuroscience.

Private 1 to 1 sessions

For the very best experience we recommend 1:1 private classes with one of our highly experienced teachers. In order to fully benefit from this method and address your individual needs and goals, all students new to Pilates are required to take 4 introductory private classes. You will be introduced to the principles of the Pilates Method, safely building a strong foundation using the Pilates equipment and mat. Once you have completed the 4 introductory sessions you have the option to continue with private classes or join one of our group classes.

Group classes

Group classes at Trimetrics are instructor-led and have a maximum of 3 participants. They run on a term basis so you will always work with the same people at a time dedicated to you. The term program will be developed by your teacher to ensure it is customized and progressed weekly to meet your needs.

Semi Private classes

We also offer instructor-led, term based, semi private classes of 2 people.

Sessions are all 55 minutes in length

Many people in our community attend regular sessions with one or more instructors as a part of their personal health and self care.

Before placing you into one of our groups, we kindly request you book one private Pilates session to enable us to place you into the most appropriate class and ensure you and your classmates have the best possible experience.

Clinical Pilates

Clinical Pilates, as it is most commonly referred to in the medical health clinic setting, modifies the classical Pilates exercises to meet the needs of each client, whilst remaining deeply rooted in the traditional, well constructed philosophy of the original Pilates Method.

At Trimetrics Clinical Pilates teachers (rehabilitation assistants) and physiotherapists work very closely together to help clients achieve the best possible outcome. Physiotherapists carry out a
detailed assessment to establish a treatment plan and introduce clients to the basic fundamentals of the Pilates method before referring to a pilates teacher (rehabilitation assistant) for an agreed number of goal oriented 1;1 Pilates sessions. The physiotherapist will monitor progress towards achieving set goals and provide additional treatment sessions as necessary.

Clinical Pilates is a tool for rehabilitation in conjunction with physiotherapy treatments such as hands on manual therapy and IMS. Using these modalities, we can effectively treat a wide
range of injuries, medical conditions and post surgical recovery. Some of these conditions include but are not limited to; scoliosis, degenerative disc disease, rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, osteoporosis, dance injuries, pelvic floor and other women’s health dysfunction, long covid, post stroke and neurological conditions ( MS and Parkinson’s )

Let's start your journey to recovery!

Clinical Pilates Sessions may be covered as a physiotherapy service on Extended Care Plans.

Our front desk team will be happy to assist you in determining the best entry point into Pilates and to help you get started.
