Our studio uses only the genuine Gratz equipment, built to the specifications recommended by Joseph Pilates himself. Working with the equipment provides weight bearing resistance which builds muscle/bone strength and stamina much quicker than mat work alone. Group classes are small and done in sequence with lots of hands on corrections. Private equipment work is vital for anyone wanting to progress quickly or recovering from injury. Many of our clients have completely avoided surgery due to working on the apparatus. Doctors and Osteopaths regularly recommend classical pilates/gyrotonic to their patients.
How Do I Start?
We ask that ALL clients start with an assessment session before attending any equipment classes. This is a full private lesson with an instructor who will record your strengths and weaknesses on our system for all teachers to use as a reference. The instructor will then suggest a personal program to suit you; If there's imbalance we might advise a few more privates or let you know which level of classes will challenge you appropriately. This assessment ensures everyone attends the correct class for their ability, and helps to set out personal goals. Group classes are a fun, affordable way to workout, but we insist that you start with a good foundation to maximise your work and avoid injury!
If you are in good health, injury free and exercise regularly check out our fast track option to join classes in top right corner under Introductory Offer. The assessment special is only suitable to those who fulfil the criteria. If you have any injuries or joint problems, please book a single assessment session (not the assessment special) so we can advise you of the safest and most economical way to address your issues.
