Private Pilates is ideal for those looking for more one-on-one attention for their Pilates training, or even as an alternative to personal training. Instructors may utilize popular equipment such as Pilates reformers and Peak MVE chairs during sessions, which use pulleys and springs rather than body weight to create long, lean muscles.

Why Private Pilates

  • Create a lean, toned body
  • Increase strength, flexibility, and balance
  • Challenge deep abdominal muscles to support the core
  • Promote recovery from a strain or injury
  • Enhance mobility, agility, and stamina
  • Compliment sports training and develop functional fitness

  • Arrive 5-10 minutes prior to the start of class for set-up and sanitize your equipment. This is to help make sure the class will start promptly at its’ designated time.
  • At the end of class, sanitize, disassemble and put all equipment away

  • Notify your instructor in advance of dates you will be absent from class. All absences will be accommodated, if possible.
  • Make-up classes require prior instructor approval and must be done within the session the participant has registered for. 
  • After your instructor is notified, fill out the make-up form to be contacted with the date to attend another class. 
  • Dress for movement

  • Please wear spandex under baggy gym shorts
  • Pilates is traditionally practiced in bare feet or socks
  • Be open with your instructor about any previous or current medical/injury history so appropriate modifications and variations can be offered.
