Take a sneak peek into our studio to see the complexity and the full body workout you can get from Pilates reformers!
Our Runaway Bay studio delivers two types of sessions; our FIT reformer Pilates classes are designed to improve your overall fitness and well-being and help you achieve your health goals; our clinical Pilates classes are tailored to target a specific injury, ailment or condition, for example to assist with rehabilitation post-surgery. Learn more about the benefits of Pilates.
Reformer Pilates classes use bed-like apparatus, with ropes, springs and straps which allow for changes in resistance as proficiency increases. The fluid transition from one position to another allows for a continuous flow of movement within each exercise, thus providing a more intense workout than can be achieved from regular mat Pilates. Read more on the topic, what is reformer Pilates?
Using reformer equipment also generally allows for greater customisation of fitness goals, since they promote better postural alignment, greater cardiovascular endurance, and potential weight loss through increased calorie burning. Since reformer Pilates tends to be more intense, it is a popular choice not just for those already well-versed in mat Pilates, but for beginners alike.
Clinical Pilates classes are suitable for those who may be recovering from injury, rehabilitating post surgery, or looking for a pre-natal or post-natal exercise program.
Our clinical Pilates classes are available in a maximum group class of four, however each participant may be working to their own program, within their own capabilities, and to meet their own specific requirements and goals. We do of course also offer private one-on-one clinical Pilates sessions should you prefer.
