Our 50 minute reformer classes are designed to give your body a complete workout with the focus on core strengthening exercises to help improve posture, increase flexibility and improve mobility. Attentive guidance from your instructor is provided and all skill levels are accommodated. As our open group classes are fast paced they are most suitable for those without injuries. We recommend private sessions to accommodate injury rehabilitation or those wanting guidance towards specific goals.

Jump Reformer

Jump Reformer

The jump board is used in addition to the Pilates reformer to create a dynamic 50 minute workout. Traditional Pilates exercises paired with interval jumping will increase your heart rate, which is optimal for burning calories, building lean muscle and improved cardiovascular fitness.

The spring resistance and padded jump board help to reduce impact on your joints.

We require you to attend a minimum of 20 Open Reformer classes before participating in this class. Jump reformer is not suitable for those with injuries, heart conditions or during pregnancy.
