We asked what we could do to improve our classes. Here’s what you said.
It is so important to us that we are providing you with the best classes possible. And your input is vital in making that possible. So a HUGE thank you to everyone who took the time to share your thoughts. We were really blown away by the response and have read every single comment and suggestion….it really means a lot being able to hear your experiences.
So. What was the feedback?
Preferred class length
The majority prefer classes lasting between 30-45 minutes. While a third of you like having all the options.
Moving forward we will continue to create a range of classes. But will try to ensure there is plenty of classes in the 30-45 minute bracket.
We asked if we’re categorising the classes correctly. Nearly 90% of you agreed that we are.
It is important for us to continue creating a range of classes to suit everyone in our Pilates community. We’re really pleased we’re generally getting the difficulty levels correct. We will continue to create a range of of classes but maybe we’ll look to design a few tougher classes that are even more tough, to suit those who are very experienced and looking for more of a challenge.
Month long calendars
Last year we created a month-long Pilates calendar roughly every quarter. We asked how popular they were. It appears there is a real mix, with about 70% of you following them at least some of the time.
Given that the calendars are generally popular we will continue creating them at the current rate – about 4 a year. We feel this gives a good mix for those that follow and enjoy the calendars as well as keeping a varied range of new classes for those that also like to choose.
Areas of the body
There is a real interest in more classes focusing on all areas of the body. It appears that classes focusing on the core, back and upper body a slightly more popular. (This question allowed you to select multiple options).
As there is a desire to continue making classes that focus on all part so of the body, so we will continue to do so with perhaps a slight increase in core, back and upper body classes.
Using Pilates equipment
The desire for more classes using Pilates equipment is split almost 50-50
Currently we do not have many classes available that utilise Pilates equipment. We will look to create more so there is a greater range for those that have that preference. Of course, well continue making plenty of new classes that do not rely on equipment too.
Types of equipment
For those interested in more classes using Pilates equipment, we asked what the preferences would be. There was a broad interest in all the equipment offered with a particular interest in more classes using the resistance band.
We will look to provide more classes using all equipment. With a particular focus on providing new classes with the resistance band.
In addition to the options above there was also an option to write specific feedback and comments. Just to re-iterate we have gone through everything and taken on board these suggestions as well as been blown away by your comments! It is wonderful to hear how about your experiences of using the classes – so thank you so much for taking the time to let us know.
All the best and here’s to a fantastic 2022
