A cardio pilates workout helps improve cardiovascular fitness, and it tones the body at the same time. Cardio Pilates helps you to improve your flexibility. The combined workout will also help you improve your posture.

Real Men Do Pilates: (Mixed level reformer)

Pilates holds plenty of benefits for men who rise to the challenge—yes, it’s hard! Whether you’re a powerlifter or prepping for your first marathon, a Pilates class can help fine-tune your performance.

You might be asking yourself how is this different from weights training? Great question! When you exercise on the reformer you learn to connect movements from one to the next. The springs reinforce the activation of the entire muscle fiber and play it like an accordion; in and out without stopping.  The result is a healthier, stronger, leaner, and more flexible muscle.

This Pilates class offers improved sports performance, decreased joint pain, and increased mobility, stability, strength, balance, and muscle control. Men, in general, have tight muscles in the shoulders, back, hips and legs, resulting in weaker core muscles and shallow breathing patterns, our aim is to help you improve all these!

This will be your go-to class for all your conditioning needs! (*Women are also welcome in this class).

This class has been specifically designed for people with conditions or injuries. Our instructors will make sure you are working out in the safest ways for your ultimate recovery or to accompany what you have been doing with your physiotherapist.

 

While Pilates in general is very restorative by nature, this class will help you move with greater ease and efficiency regardless your condition. The class size has also been reduced dramatically to make sure you get the full attention from the instructor without having to pay for 1-1 classes all the time.  We are pretty sure your doctor and physiotherapist have recommended that you work out more often to build strength around your injury and at this class this is exactly what you will be doing under the supervision of a professional.

Gym Vibes (Intermediate to Advanced)

For Intermediate to Advanced Pilates Fanatics! (You have completed 10 classes of mixed level reformer pilates)

Our signature Gym Vibes class is for those who are looking at gaining more muscles. Yes, you will not need the gym subscriptions anymore because you will be able to achieve a gym ‘body’ look and an even ‘longer’ body.

The exercises we will take you through will address the total body with resistance from the springs we use on the machine, additional weights, plus our own body weight. Sometimes you will do the same exercise for up to 3 minutes which will exhaust the muscle group we are working. Stretched over 1 hour, we will help you hit every muscle group resulting in a growing muscle.

The cherry on top is that by applying the Pilates principles on the reformer we will hold our bodies in neutral alignment protecting you against incorrect form.

This class uses heavier weights and tougher springs, so you’ll build new strength and rock a six-pack sooner than you expected.

 Injury-free- good understanding of the reformer exercises is a pre-requisite
