This is an exclusive interview with Cherry Baker and answers the question of whether Pilates based classes are actually good for your back.

This is a slightly controversial interview, but it is really a really insightful interview with one of Uk’s most respected fitness professionals. In this interview you will learn;

1. What is the difference between all the Pilates courses out there.
2. Whether the original Pilates exercises are actually good for your back
3. What type of Pilates exercises and classes do actually help the core and back.
4. The IDEAL class template that all Pilates classes stick to, to be successful and effective.
5. Why many classes are actually giving Pilates a bad name, how to watch out for this and, if you are an instructor, how to make sure your class is not one of them
