What is your cancellation policy for classes?
We require a 24-hour cancellation notice to avoid being charged for classes you’ve pre-registered for.
How does the wait list work?
WAITLIST: If you are on the wait list an auto email will be sent to you if you are added to the class up to 24 hrs prior the class. Only add yourself on the wait list if you are sure you will be able to take that class. If you are added to the class you are accountable for the spot and the 24hrs cancellation will apply. If you book yourself for one class and also add yourself to another class wait list on the same day, when added, you will be accountable for both classes.
HOW IT WORKS: Once you find a class you'd like to take, please pre-register online by logging in and selecting "Sign Up". This will reserve your spot so the instructor knows to expect you. It's important to arrive promptly at class time so that you can ease in with our instructor-led stretches (though we understand you may run late from time to time!). Please note that your reserved spot canbe given to someone on the wait-list if you do not show up soon after start time. You will still be charged for reserved classes.
WHAT TO EXPECT: To work! But at your own pace. Our instructors are trained to work with a variety of fitness levels, injury histories, past Pilates experience and ages. Pilates is about setting your own personal goals, enjoying the moment (breathe in and out), clearing your mind (stretch...) and getting toned and fit! Trust us, you'll enjoy the total body benefits of Pilates.
WHAT TO BRING: Pilates socks with grips (we sell them on site). Proper workout attire, for your safety we requier you yo have the proper strechy pants.

Do I have to take an introductory class before joining a group Pilates class?
No, we do not require new clients to take a private introductory session prior to attending a group reformer class, but we do encourage clients to take advantage of our great introductory session rate. The session allows you to work 1 on 1 with one of our instructors to access your body and goals, help you learn the equipment, and become comfortable with basic Pilates movements.
How long does it take to see results with Pilates?
There are many factors that contribute how long it will take to see results such as your starting fitness level, diet, and how often you attend classes. As a general rule, attending classes at least twice a week with a healthy diet at home will allow you to begin seeing results in as little as 6 weeks.
How do I know if Pilates is right for me?
Pilates is a wonderful addition to anyone’s current routine or a great way to start a new one. It benefits people of all ages, male and female, and varying athletic abilities. Our clients range from 15 to 76 and everywhere in between. We have athletes, new mothers and mothers-to-be, as well as clients recovering from injuries. No matter where your body currently is, Pilates can help.
What’s better – Pilates mat or Reformer classes?
Both types of classes are greatly beneficial and can help you achieve your fitness goals. A great Pilates workout can be accomplished with mat classes whether you’re a beginner, intermediate, or advanced as our instructors often give clients various options and modifications for individual exercises. Our Reformer classes use spring resistance that works like concentric and eccentric muscle contractions to safely sculpt, tone and stretch the muscles. It is always a good idea to mix up your fitness routine to avoid reaching a plateau and all of our classes can help you do that.
What do the private Pilates sessions consist of?
Our private Pilates sessions are a 1 on 1 workout with a certified Pilates instructor. Since you are the only client, our instructors can focus all of their attention on your body and fitness goals to put together a specific routine and training schedule that best meets your needs. Our private sessions are also a great way to learn the equipment and various Pilates fundamentals whether you’re just starting out, mixing them in with classes, or just want to change up your routine.
Can I do Pilates if I’am pregnant?
It is always important to consult with a physician before beginning a new exercise routine, especially while pregnant. Generally speaking, moderate exercise is safe throughout a normal, healthy pregnancy and Pilates exercises can be very beneficial during and after. Pilates is incredibly adaptable, making it an ideal fitness routine as your body goes through the many different stages of pregnancy and childbirth. During pregnancy, the goals of Pilates are to keep the core strong to support the back, hips, and belly and to help during childbirth. As a bonus, many Pilates mommies find that postpartum recovery is faster because of the existing core strength and muscle awareness. Pilates can be a fast, safe and very effective way to get in shape postpartum..
What if I’am not very fit or have just gotten back into exercising after a long hiatus?
We welcome people of all fitness levels in our Bootcamp classes and are happy to tailor exercises and activities to your individual fitness level. Everyone will leave class feeling challenged but we won’t ask you to accomplish more than you are comfortable and capable of doing safely.
I’am not much of a runner. Can I still participate in the Exo Cardio classes?
Absolutely! During those classes we do intervals in the treadmills which are a mix of walking and running. Typical interval sets last between 6 and 8 minutes so no need to be an expert runner to participate and get a great workout.
Do you use very heavy weights in the Power Classes?
We use a variety of different size weights during our classes depending on the exercises and muscle groups that are being targeted. We have a multitude of weights available, allowing the weight for each exercise to be customized to the individual client if necessary.
What should I wear and bring with me to class?
Clients should come prepared for class wearing appropriate workout attire. No jeans are allowed. Toesox or sox with grips is a must!. Athletic shoes and mat are required for the Exo Cardio. A water bottle, towel are also recommended. If you forget your water, we have it for sale at our boutique for your convenience. We also offer mat rental as option.
Do I have to register online for classes?
Yes, We don't have a front desk, so you need to preregister online in order to attend the class
Can I attend classes if I am recovering from an injury or experiencing chronic pain?
It is always a good idea to consult your physician prior to beginning any exercise program following an injury or while you’re experiencing chronic pain. Our instructors are trained to handle many different body types and conditions including some rehabilitation. All of our classes are adaptable to help make sure you can still get a good workout while being conscientious of any particular body issues and/or injuries you may be dealing with. Pilates in particular can help tremendously when recovering from an injury or while experiencing chronic pain. It can also do a great job of preventing chronic pain and injuries by strengthening key muscles and creating a better balance within your body.
Should I eat before coming to class?
Your body is a finely tuned machine and thus needs energy to fuel it. Energy comes from food. While everyone’s body is unique and has different needs, we suggest making sure you’ve had at least a good snack a couple hours prior to attending a class so your body has fuel to burn. On the flip side, you don’t want to eat a large meal just prior to exercising as it will tend to make you feel heavier and sluggish as your body expends more energy to digest your meal.
