The Truth About Pilates with Alexa Idama

On this episode, Low Impact Fit's Alexa Idama joins me to talk all things pilates. She walks me through a number of misconceptions about the fitness system, including its common comparison to yoga. Alexa unpacks the differences between the two for us, pointing out various factors that set them apart. Alexa and I also discuss the types of pilates as well as who can do pilates and how often. Pilates can supplement other areas of fitness as well, and we dive into the pros and cons of group classes vs private sessions. 

In this episode, Alexa and I talk about:
- Difference between Reformer and Mat Pilates.
- How pilates works with other forms of exercise.
- The variety pilates offers. 


Don't forget to leave us a review on Apple Podcasts.

About Today's Guest

Alexa Idama has been working in the health and wellness industry for 18 years. She was a Certified Personal Trainer, Yoga teacher and Group Fitness Instructor before being introduced to Pilates by a colleague. From her very first session she was hooked! All the missing pieces she had not been able to find with other forms of movement finally came together. Joint issues that she had struggled with for years just went away. Her body finally moved as a whole with more awareness. She decided to become a certified Pilates teacher so that she could share her passion for and the benefits of Pilates with others. Alexa believes that every body is unique and strives to focus on the individuals needs and what works best for them. Her goal is to help as many people as possible become the healthiest version of themselves in mind, body and spirit.

Originally from Cameroon, Alexa now lives in Atlanta with her husband and two sons. Apart from doing Pilates she loves cooking healthy foods, hiking and restoring/creating pieces made from wood.
