WHAT IS PILATES PLUS?
Pilates Plus is a combination of weight training and Pilates. Pilates Plus utilizes the best of both: the strengthening and toning benefits of weight training, and the lengthening and postural enhancing benefits of Pilates in a circuit training sequence. Pilates Plus keeps the heart rate up and burns extra calories. You can expect to burn 500 to 600 calories in a single class! The support provided by the ProFormer reduces pressure on joints and the spine eliminating extra stress on the body.
WHAT SHOULD I BRING TO CLASS?
Bring a towel as you will most likely sweat! Grip Socks are mandatory.
Although we have a water dispenser, some students like to bring their own water. Wear loose, comfortable clothes. For the benefit of everyone, please wear socks during the class. Jewelry is NOT a good idea. No cellphones during classes, to be respectful of others. No strong perfumes as some students are allergic.
WHAT IF I CAN'T COME TO CLASS AND I HAVE ALREADY BEEN CONFIRMED? WILL I BE CHARGED?
Yes, even if it's your first time. We require an 8hr notice before making any kind of changes to your schedule. The same rules apply to any specials. During any unlimited offer, as well as losing the class you have booked, we will charge an additional $15 each time you book a class and do not show. There are no exceptions, so please don't ask!
THIS IS MY FIRST TIME DOING PILATES PLUS - SHOULD I DO PRIVATE SESSIONS FIRST?
It depends on your current fitness level. Most of our new students do fine in the classes. The workout is intense but the routine is kept simple to make sure everyone is using good form. However, if you have chronic back pain, painful joints or a severe medical condition, it is recommended to take a private session first to assess your fitness level. We also have a Technique Class in the schedule if you want to start in a learning environment.
HOW OFTEN SHOULD I PRACTICE PILATES PLUS?
The workout is designed to work your body to muscle fatigue at which point you need to rest. Depending on your fitness level and the intensity of your workout, you will need more or less time to recover. We recommend three times a week to allow your body to properly recover and repair. But some students love the workout so much that they come 5 or 6 times a week. It’s up to you.
