All new clients also qualify for a one time purchase of our Introductory Pilates Package, which is 3 private sessions for $150.00. During these 3 sessions we teach our clients how to use the equipment, teach some of the exercises done on the equipment, as well as discuss your current exercise routine, health history and personal fitness goals. If your plan is to attend our mat classes only, we will focus on teaching the core exercises done in a mat class and your personal modifications. This is to help you feel comfortable and safe joining a class. You will get the most out of class with this basic information prior to your mat workouts. Come visit our fully equipped studio any time. We are here, we’re ready and excited to help you reach your fullest PILATES fitness potential!
What is a Group Reformer class? These classes are performed on the Pilates Reformer which is a spring loaded machine. The springs add resistance which will challenge your strength, muscle endurance and flexibility with each exercise. Reformer workouts condition the whole body and can be especially FUN in a group!
Who can participate? Men and women of all ages can participate that would like to condition and tone their whole body. Some injuries and/or health issues may prevent a student from safely participating in a group setting. Therefore, private training would be best.
How can someone get started? All Group Reformer students must do at least 3 *introductory sessions before joining a class. As long as there are not any physical conditions that may be compromised by participating in a group setting, new students can join a class once the 3 sessions are completed. In some cases your trainer may suggest additional private or semi-private training before joining a class.
*INTRO PKG - $150 / 3 private sessions
What is the Jump Board? The JB is a firmly padded board which attaches to the foot of the reformer. Plyometric training is done while lying supine as opposed to standing with full body weight and impact. The JB brings a cardiovascular element to Pilates exercise including intervals of upper body strength work. Great for sport specific training!
