What to Expect at Pilates New Plymouth

At Pilates New Plymouth we want to provide the best possible Pilates experience for our clients, therefore, every new client will undergo the same initial process of assessment & programming.


In general New Clients will be required to attend a series of sessions: one Assessment & Intro Pilates Session & two One-on-One Mat Sessions.

The first appointment includes a personalised health screen & postural analysis, plus goal setting, to allow us to prescribe a suitable Pilates programme. It also includes teaching the principles & benefits of the STOTT PILATES® method.

The two One-on-One sessions will be programmed for you so that you can become familiar with the prescribed exercises. The client can then choose to book private appointments or move into group sessions or classes.

Another Option is to attend a Group intro session, then join a class, providing there are no health or injury issues.


Come along in clothing that is comfortable to move in. Clients must wear socks throughout each session for hygiene. Pilates Socks are available for purchase. If you wear orthotics, your shoes can be worn.

"I'm exited that Chris is opening a Pilates Reformer studio. I cant wait to get back on those machines as I find they are a wonderful compliment to Pilates mat work, & ensure that I make the most of my workout, enabling me to tone & really connect with specific areas of my body.  If you haven't tried a reformer before & are looking for that something extra to add to your workout then this could be for you"

"I was looking for something to keep me smiling as age creeps up on me, to help with muscle tone, balance, easy breathing, posture, walking tall, and for enjoyment. I started Pilates with Chris, and I feel fabulous. I would recommend it to everyone."

It is with great sadness that Pamela passed away, September 2015, after a brief illness. She was a great lady who I admired. I enjoyed her company,her humorous  Irish soul, & it was a privilege to have taught her Pilates. Chris Ure

Pamela McCarthy

"I went to Pilates New Plymouth with a weak core, balance & co-ordination issues, lack of strength, lack of tone, & joint pains in my knees especially. A challenge to say the least! Following an assessment with Chris we embarked on some one on one sessions. Under Chris’s expert guidance & tuition I was able to move more freely & I progressed to Group sessions.I decided to book 3 x per week so I could feel & gain the benefits quickly.  Now just 3 months later, I am amazed at my new found strength & agility, a much stronger Core, which has made a profound difference to my everyday activities. I feel more toned with a greater sense of ease & wellbeing, I even sleep better, plus I have gone down 2 sizes in my clothes. I recommend Chris & Pilates New Plymouth to anyone."

Veronica Tarrant

"Since Pilates New Plymouth opening I have regularly attended reformer classes. Working in an office position sees me sit for long periods, which has had major affects & pain to my back, along with other added injury’s I found myself searching for a solution to better my quality of life. I tried gym personal training, osteopaths, massage, acupuncture, physiotherapists with no avail. I heard through a co-worker about Chris and her new reformer pilates studio, so I thought I would give that a whirl.I fast saw improvements with issues I was having and now find my general quality of life much better, in fact I saw such great improvements I bumped my 2 classes a week up to 4.Personally, I love the fact that I am doing something healthy, nonabrasive and good for my body, but still knowing that I’m getting stretch & some core exercise workouts – Beats the gym if you ask me. Chris and Gemma are a dynamic team, they’re both lovely people to chat with, they work well with injury’s, create wonderful tailored one on one sessions, however they also have a great push to make you work hard and build yourself, therefore I feel is very suited to any level of health."
