These days it seems everyone is talking about Personal Pilates Straps. If you've been walking into your Pilates class and watching others strap on their own, beautiful, personal Pilates Straps and have wondered what all the fuss is about, read on to discover 5 reasons personal Pilates straps are all the rage.
We all have different physical issues to work with, some of us need to strengthen our glutes, others need to work on our abdominals, many of us have issues with our hip flexors. Do you know that the straps you use and the way you grip with your feet can directly impact your use of these muscles.
When you are holding your foot in a single Pilates loop strap you are activating the lower part of the leg and could be exacerbating Plantar Fasciitis and calf tension. By using Small Double Loop straps your foot and ankle both have support, this means you can flex and point your feet allowing better connection through the fascial back line up the leg into the hamstring and glute. This can seriously improve hip function and your connection into your core.
Whether you've got balance issues or something more serious neurologically going on you need to feel supported. Trusting that you can move safely without the equipment slipping off your hands, feet or back for that manner allows better Pilates practice.
We have assistance tools for elderly clients with peripheral pain and joint issues and Pelvic and Spine support for any kind of physical challenge brought to the studio.
Our specialised equipment range is a must for all studio owners.
We all know that flow is one of the Pilates principles. We have all been in studios where we need to stop what we are doing, get up and change to a different set of straps. With the newly invented Loop and Roll strap on your equipment you will never need to stop and change straps again.
'How does this work?' I hear you ask? The Pilates loop and Roll does exactly what it says in the name. It has the Roll handle that we all know and love with the benefit of working your grip strength combined with a cushioned foot loop for maximum comfort. This fusion leads to your workout will being smooth and will keep you moving.
Remember when we all used to share yoga mats? Those days are long gone, thank goodness!
The last couple of years in this world, health and good hygiene has never been more important.
Often we are sharing straps with others and sharing hand germs too. This is never more of an issue than in summer where it can get humid and hot. We've all seen those people who pour with sweat and while we wipe down beds the straps stay on the machines. Those shared straps become a Petri dish of bacteria and quite frankly who wants that?
Lets stay safe and ensure that while trying to improve our fitness we are protecting ourselves and enjoying a healthy summer.
I mean who doesn't like to look good and black straps are just so boring!
Why not add a dash of colour to your workout, mix and match. Can a person ever spoil themselves too much?
I personally love a bit of matching active wear. Look fresh this summer.
There is no 'one size fits all'
Just genius! This invention is ELEMENTS at it's best. The number of times we've had to switch between hand and foot straps, never again. This all in one combo is perfect for Allegro reformers.
I used to pack thick socks when I went to class because my feet used to hurt. THESE STRAPS DON'T HURT MY FEET! These straps are the bomb!

I sometimes get hand pain after a long days work and the small hand Y are an absolute life saver. They support my hands with a relaxed grip so I can move freely. Love them.
Love These. Soft yet Durable straps in two sizes, even the small straps fit comfortably on a mans hand. They stay on without rubber bands. Best!
