Matwork, a Great Place to Start

We receive a lot of new clients who have been referred by friends and family, but they’re often not sure where and how to get started.

We think matwork Pilates is a wonderful entry into movement, and can be less daunting than learning how to use the Pilates reformer equipment.

But they’re not mutually exclusive, combining matwork and reformer is an amazing way to get the benefits from both!

Reform Studios is a warm and welcoming environment for people of all ages and fitness levels to come and feel part of our community.

The Studio has two main spaces; one side is our group reformer room, with an instructor guiding you through a 45 minute whole body workout. We cater for beginners through to more experienced clients, and if the reformer machine isn’t what you’re after, feel free to try our matwork Pilates classes. You may just want something gentle and restorative, like our stretch and relax class. There’s no need to worry about remembering moves or being coordinated, and we can work with your injuries and niggles. We provide adjustments and extensions so that every day feels like a totally new workout. The reformer space focuses on strength and fitness, with each class engaging a multitude of muscles.

Our second space is dedicated to floor classes, including matwork Pilates, stretch and relax classes, more advanced matwork Pilates classes, along with some weekend high intensity. Not sure whether matwork or reformer is for you? Check out our blog: Matwork vs Reformer

Reformer Pilates is an exercise modality done on a reformer machine that, like its matwork counterpart, involves the principles of centring, concentration, control, precision, breath, and flow. The reformer machine was designed by Joseph Pilates, the founder of Pilates, in the 1920s and involves a system of springs, ropes, pulleys and a moving carriage. During your class, an instructor guides you through a range of slow moving (but not boring!) exercises designed to target muscle groups through a large range of motion.

You may find yourself lying down, standing, kneeling, lying on your side, and pulling straps and pushing against springs. The reformer machine is hugely versatile, and can adapt to your level of strength, therefore catering for everyone in the class. For this reason, it has many benefits, including; limitless exercise variations, excellent for improving both strength and flexibility whilst being gentle on your joints, excellent for toning and most importantly, it’s fun! Regular reformer Pilates exercises will lead to greater strength, flexibility and balance, which in turn improve posture, movement and mental health.

We know it can be daunting starting something new. One of the biggest barriers to starting with a new exercise regime, especially if you’re not someone who actively throws caution to the wind, is having the confidence that you’re starting in the right place. “So where do you start?”…great question!

Reformer Pilates:

For all our new clients, we require you to come along to one of our weekly reformer ‘Fitness Intro’ classes. Before your class, we will have reviewed your Health Questionnaire information and will be able to discuss any concerns you may have at your intro. You will have a chance to meet your new best friend (the reformer) and experience what all the fuss is about during a 30 minute workout. For those with recent reformer experience, and with minimal or no injuries, you may skip this class by reaching out to the team first.

If you are interested in something a little higher intensity, we would recommend our Reformer Extensions classes. However, as they include the reformer, we do ask that all those new to our studio complete an Introductory Pack first to learn the ropes.

Matwork Pilates:

With matwork Pilates, we don’t require you to have completed our prerequisite Fitness Intro class, as you will not be using the Pilates reformer machine. Instead, you will be guided by your instructor through a range of exercises, standing or lying down, using props like therabands, Pilates circles and chi balls. These are suitable for beginners, and can be made more challenging by your instructor depending on your level.

If you’re looking for something to help relax and unwind, our Stretch & Relax classes also conducted in our matwork space, would be ideal.

As matwork classes do not require any prerequisite you can trial these classes by simply purchasing a 6 class Intro Pack and book away!

We often get asked about who attends a Pilates studio like ours?

“Will I be ok if I’m not young and fit?”

“Is it ok if I’m not skinny?”

“Will I be able to keep up?”

The answer to all of these is a big YES! Many of our clients are over 40 and love the supporting atmosphere whilst getting  workout that can be as intense as they chose. We built this studio as a happy place to move your body to a level you’re comfortable with, to have fun and to feel welcome. That’s it! You don’t need to prove anything to anyone at Reform Studios, here, everyone is welcome.

We’re also a truly boutique studio, Mitchelton is where we live and wanted to base our one and only studio. We’re proudly independent, and love to support local. 

At Reform Studios we love the relaxed atmosphere and strong community vibe we have created. So please don’t feel compelled to rush out and buy yourself the latest exercise fashion, just wear what you’re comfortable in. If that includes your favourite, and well worn, ‘best mum in the world’ T-shirt, then we want you to rock that with pride!

In your Pilates class, socks are a must. They not only help with general hygiene, they provide grip whilst on the reformer. We encourage you to buy yourself a pair (or two) of Pilates grip socks in your favourite colour.

Towels are not essential, however you may want to bring along a small towel to place over your head cushion to add a barrier for additional infection control. Rest assured though, you will be wiping down your reformer after your class, including all surfaces you’ve been in contact with. We also ask you to disinfect your hands both on entry to the studio and on exit – which is why we have set up automatic hand sanitiser stations for you.

One of the most frequently asked questions, and one one of the most important, is “how many classes a week should I attend?” There’s a couple of things to consider here, like how much other exercise are you doing, how much time do you have for classes, and how quickly you are looking for progress?

We often suggest that one class a week will help you maintain your current level of muscle strength, and allow you to slowly improve your range or motion and flexibility. It also provides you with plenty or recovery time if it’s been a while since you did any strength based training. Two classes a week is the most popular, and will help you achieve an increase in both muscle tone and strength. As a result, you will see changes in your body shape and posture, and help overcome any niggly chronic pain that has crept in due to lack of movement. Three times a week will see you gain strength quickly, a more rapid change in body shape and a significant improvement in your joint condition and flexibility. This is a big commitment, and you’ll see some amazing results!

We have an amazing team of Pilates instructors (well, I guess we would say that), but it’s true! They are the lifeblood of the Reform Studios business, and they are 100% committed to everyone in our community of clients. You will see from the first moment you arrive, you have entered into what our clients often refer to as their “happy place”. We treat everyone as an individual, including keeping personalised notes on all class attendances. This way, our instructors can review your fitness and injury status before each class.

You’re not simply a number to us, as a boutique studio we’ve made sure the experience is about you, not us. Plus, they are all a little different from one another, which is how we like it. It may take a few classes to find the instructors that suit your style the best, so we encourage you to give them all a try!

We love how the surrounding community supports us as a local independent business, and we truly feel blessed to call Mitchelton home. As this is our only studio, we pour out heart into everything we do, including ensuring you reach your fitness and wellness goals.

For anyone looking for more of a challenge but not necessarily a cardio-based  class, then dive into one of our Tower Classes. With only six in a class, you will get lots of attention from one of our senior instructors as they take you through your paces! A reformer with a tower adds not only significantly more exercise repertoire, it will test your strength and balance, leaving you will a great sense of achievement.

I had a very hard day at work, I was full of stress, tension and wanting to send cranky emails. I went to Lara's tower class instead. The transformation was incredible, by the end of the class I felt relaxed and happy. It was so good I stayed for a second class and loved it! Thank you Lara, you are a miracle worker!

Reform Studios is simply the best Pilates studio that I have ever been to (and I've been to many). It has a real community feel where you treated as a person, not a number. The awesome instructors check in with you before each class and provide options to suit your body so that you get the maximum benefit out of every class. Your age, size, weight or fitness level doesn't matter here - whatever you want from your workout, Scott and the team can deliver. I can't recommend Reform Studios highly enough. It truly is my happy place to exercise.

Reform is the best Pilates studio in Mitchelton. Their staff are knowledgeable, experienced and demonstrate a level of care and concern that goes beyond your usual fitness class. I have been a client since June 2018, where post baby I wanted to get back into exercise and Leigh and the staff at Reform helped me to get back into the swing of things. They differentiate the program to suit your needs and abilities. No matter your age, stage of life, fitness or experience, Reform is very well-suited to cater to your needs. Highly recommend!!
