Pilates

Pilates is a vigorous full body exercise system that utilizes a variety of specialized equipment such as the Reformer, Cadillac, Chair, and Mat. Pilates is a whole body workout as well as a mental workout.

“In ten sessions you will feel the difference, in twenty you will see the difference, and in thirty you will have a whole new body.” - Joseph H. Pilates

Introduction Package

The Intro Package consists of four 55-minute private sessions and is designed for those new to the Pilates Reformer. You will learn how to personalize reformer settings, focus on breathing, body-awareness and the core principles that constitute the Pilates repertoire. 

Group classes not your thing? We also offer private pilates sessions! Contact Sarah Richardson, Pilates Director.

Prerequisite: Assessment by a Pilates instructor to assess the member's ability to move to the regular classes or begin with the Intro Package.

Pilates Mat

Mat, Ball, & Props classes are group training classes performed on the floor using just your body weight. Small props like hand weights, stability ball or magic circle can be added to increase the intensity of the exercises. Mat classes are designed to focus on core strength and stability with the purpose of improving posture and helping to prevent injury in sports and daily activities. Modifications will be offered to accommodate different body types and levels of fitness. 

 Minimum requirements: This class is open to all members of Club Fitness and has no pre-requisites.

Reformer Multi-Level

The multi-level Reformer classes combine Level 1 and Level 2 exercises and are open to any Pilates member who has completed Intro Package AND has been consistently taking Pilates classes for at least one month. The exercises taught in class will depend on what level of student is present, especially taking into consideration our most inexperienced members. Pilates Reformer classes help develop stability, coordination, breath, and precision while toning muscles, increasing flexibility, and improving posture, balance, and breath support. With consistent practice, members will find themselves with a stronger, leaner, more mindful body. This class is a prerequisite for Reformer 2 classes. 

Minimum requirements: Participants must have completed the Intro Private Package and have at least one month of consistent group Reformer class experience.

Additional requirements: Members must have no major structural injuries and should be able to follow verbal cueing in a group class environment.

Reformer Two

Reformer 2 class members continue to build strength, stamina, flexibility, balance and coordination while performing faster-paced, intermediate-level exercises on the Pilates Reformer. Class members will mobilize their spine and peripheral joints in every direction while focusing on their breath patterns and their stability in the pelvis, shoulder girdle, neck and rib cage. 

Minimum Requirements: Participants must have approval from the Pilates director prior to joining level 2 classes. If members have not taken any Pilates classes in 6 months and wish to join the Reformer 2 classes, the Director might require a $65 one-hour Pilates assessment prior to enrollment. For their personal safety, members who do not have the approval of the Pilates Director may be asked to leave before the start of class
