|In such cases that the client has purchased a bundle package, early cancelation can be rolled over to the following week. If you have purchased a package with consecutive sessions or any discount deals, cancellations are final with no refund. Classes canceled with less than 24 hours’ notice are treated as ‘late cancels’ and remain chargeable in full for drop-in or discounted classes. Missed classes are treated in the same way as late cancels.|
Groupon customers cannot get a refund for a canceled class.
What is involved in the Initial Private session? Is it just a consultation or am I going to get a workout?

Unlike mat work, reformer Pilates allows you to do footwork on the bar which is essential in this day and age.

Adults should train each major muscle group two or three days each week using a variety of exercises and equipment.
Very light or light intensity is best for older persons or previously sedentary adults starting an exercise.
Two to four sets of each exercise will help adults improve strength and power.
For each exercise, 8-12 repetitions improve strength and power, 10-15 repetitions improve strength in middle-age and older persons starting exercise, and 15-20 repetitions improve muscular endurance.
Adults should wait at least 48 hours between resistance training sessions.
Adults should do flexibility exercises at least two or three days each week to improve range of motion.
Each stretch should be held for 10-30 seconds to the point of tightness or slight discomfort.
Repeat each stretch two to four times, accumulating 60 seconds per stretch.
Static, dynamic, ballistic and PNF stretches are all effective.
Flexibility exercise is most effective when the muscle is warm.
Try a light aerobic activity or a hot bath to warm the muscles before stretching.
What is the difference between a Beginners and Athletic Performance class? (both Group Reformer and Mat)
