Length: 55 mins
Description: Classic mat pilates done in a room with infrared lights. This class uses props like light weights, a pilates ring and bands to sculpt and tone the body.
Sweat Level: 9/10 – You will start sweating the second you walk in here! It’s a very hot room.
Tone Level: 8/10 – Very toning and sculpting, it’s a great ab workout!
Cult Level: 5/10 – Felt the cultiness less in this class than their others. Lots of newbies, good for those who are newer to pilates and/or don’t want to use the refomer.
Sneakers/Props: Barefoot! Skidless towel ($3 to rent).
Shower/Locker Situation: 1 shower – It’s a little hidden (took as a while to discover it, not very advertised). Refresh station (A+ products) + blowdriers avail. Digi locks.
Vibe: Vibe is different than their other classes. Even though it’s just a challenging, we found it to be a little less serious that their reformer pilates classes.
Similar to: Hot Pilates (LA)
Extras: On CP and costs less credits than many of their other classes! If you have any health conditions or are pregnant, do some research/ask doc first.
Go Back? Yes! Love it for a SWEATY tone.
