Answers to the Most Frequently Asked Questions

Pilates is a low-impact, total body workout that aims to strengthen muscles and improve flexibility. Reformer Pilates simply refers to the equipment used. A reformer machine adds more resistance than typical body weight, making for a more effective workout.

What is Reformer Pilates?

When it comes to what to wear and bring, we recommend:

  • Clothes that breathe

  • A slightly tighter/firmer top and bottoms; baggy tops may end up being revealing when doing certain exercises

  • Grippy socks; while they are not an essential, they will provide more traction on the machine making it easier to follow along with the exercises

    • Don’t have a pair of socks? Don’t worry! You can purchase some inside our studio

  • A water bottle

What should I wear/bring to Pilates?

At least twice per week for results-driven clients, however if you’re new to Pilates you may wish to commence with one of our 1:1 personal training sessions. Remember, even though it’s fun Pilates is still a workout and it’s important not to overdo it.

How many classes a week should I do?

Unfortunately, because of the structure of our studio, we are not able to accept walk-ins. If you are a new client looking to get started with Pilates, you can visit this page to find out more about our packages and to book your first class.

Do you accept walk-ins?

Because Pilates is a form of exercise designed to tone and strengthen muscles it can help you to lose weight. With that being said, if weight loss is your goal, we recommend implementing Pilates into a larger health and nutrition strategy.

Will Pilates help me lose weight?

Absolutely! Pilates is a great way to stabilise joints and eliminate or manage some of the aches and pains that typically come with pregnancy or help you to rehabilitate your body after labour. Because the focus is on strengthening the back, pelvic floor, and legs, and combing this with body awareness, Pilates is not only a great way to help you prepare for labour, but it can also be beneficial in supporting your body in the time after. Please note that it is important to listen to the recommendations made by your physician.
