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!
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.
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!
