How to survive your first Reformer Pilates class 

So you’ve signed up, booked in and set your alarm (and good intensions) for the early morning reformer class.  NOW WHAT!

Here are some of our tips on what to do before your first reformer class by a Reformer instructor;

  • Show up 10 minutes earlier than the class begins.
  • Tell your instructor it’s your first class – don’t be embarrassed chances are there are a few of you.
  • During the class listen out for beginner options, spring choices and exercise modifications. If you feel you can go a little stronger grab the attention of your instructor.
  • Do follow lead from other students! Some of our regulars are our best form of teacher during class.
  • If you feel fatigued, REST! Don’t push yourself just because the person next to you is doing a push up with one finger!
  • Don’t forget to HAVE FUN and BREATH!
  • Make sure you refuel after class
