Pilates on Twitter

By Amy Leibrock

Twitter Pilates“Returned from 60min Pilates! Instructor from abroad, he has an accent, sounds like Arnold Schwarzeneger…very entertaining! I’ll be back!” —overhead on Twitter

Do you Tweet? We do…Pilates-Pro.com just set up a Twitter profile this month. (You can see our Tweets and follow us at twitter.com/Pilates_Pro_com.) If you’re not sure what Twitter is all about, you’re not alone. For all the press it gets, the social networking site Twitter has yet to reach the critical mass that Facebook has. But if you like Facebook, LinkedIn or MySpace, it’s worth checking out. You can connect with friends, clients and colleagues, promote your business, get breaking news, follow the moves of your favorite celebs and brands—and just waste time—in 140 characters or less. We’re still learning, but it’s been fun so far.

There are some other fun things you can do on Twitter…like eavesdrop. That’s how I found the quote above. Without even being a member, you can search by any term and see what people are saying about it in real time. We searched by “Pilates instructor” and “Pilates teacher.” Here’s more of what we found…

On setting a great example…
“Looks like I’ll be taking Pilates instead of yoga since I met the 75 year-old instructor”

“best pilates class ever! this lady instructor was keep calling Dr. Pilates Uncle Joe… -_- But she had the most amazing arms as a 50 y/o!”

“wonders if pilates is a waste of time? looking at the instructor… probably not.”


…and a little criticism
“wishes her Pilates instructor didn’t talk so much about her recent colonoscopy.”

“the problem with the pilates class I go to - teacher is quite good but never adds new challenges so no real progress made”

…and inspiration!
“most inspiring teacher-Mary Bowen- “Body, what do you WANT to do today?” at Pilates Method Alliance Convention Nov 08 -first gen.are amazing”

“Just back from pilates…my instructor made a routine for me to do on the road, + insists I check in w/ her on FB daily <3 accountability :)”

“I do pilates daily, and it makes me feel like the Queen Of Health!!”

“Pilates = so not boring. Especially with the right instructor.”
