Thursday Pilates classes

Pilates classes start on Thursday @ 7:00 @ Gaelscoil Bharra with instructor Barbara Kruta.

Pilates will run from 7 to 8, and our Thursday turbo session will follow from 8 to 9.

10 week block for €70. That's pretty great value for Pilates classes specially customised for triathletes - from an excellent instructor.

Exercises will be based on Balanced Body Repertoire Mat L1-3 selection, elements of Yoga and are suitable for all levels.

Booking is open here:

A bit about Pilates from Barbara:
Pilates exercises are aimed at the full body. Every exercise is designed to elongate, strengthen and restore the body to its natural patterns. Programmes gently develop strength and tone in a way which lightens the load on the spine and joints. This helps each facet of the body to function better, to move with greater ease and with better control. Pilates does this by helping to rediscover the body’s natural movements and alignments. This restores balance that is lost with bad posture and misuse of muscles (which can happen during long rides and swims). The result of Pilates for triathletes is strengthening of muscles and freedom of movement with the lovely bi-product of looking taller, leaner and more toned!
