Experts agree that the techniques to train men and women do differ - while they can be in the same classes, of course, there are some nuances important for working with male bodies. I’m not saying that you cannot train a man at the same time as a woman, or that they cannot all be in the same group class. Learn from LaBriece the voice tone, verbal cues, touch (how, where, if), pace, exercise choices, types of variations, number of repetitions, and spring settings for various apparatus to improve your male and athletic clients' experiences of Pilates.
