FAQs

“Is the Pilates Lesson Planner compatible with Macs?”
Yes.
“Am I able to change the wording within the exercises with my own explanations?”
Yes.
"Can I use the Pilates Lesson Planner with IE browser?"
The Pilates Lesson Planner cannot be used with the IE (Internet Explorer) web browser. IE is notorious for bugs in it’s coding. The IE bugs have nothing to do with the coding in the Pilates Lesson Planner. Here’s an article from Computer World explaining why the IE web browser is out of date. There are 100’s of other similar articles online. If you’re using IE, I recommend downloading the Chrome Web Browser (or Firefox, Opera, etc).
