Class + Studio: Hot Pilates Classic @ Hot Pilates
Location: LA (WeHo)
Length: 55 mins
Description: Mat Pilates in heated room (95 deg!) Mix of toning, cardio + core exercises done on a mat with props. We used a band, light weights and a pilates circle.
Sweat Level: 10/10 – this is a HIGHLY sweaty workout!
Tone Level: 7/10 – This is dependent on instructor, but they also have more advanced classes: Hot Pilates Sculpt (intermediate) + HARDCORE (advanced)
Cult Level: 8/10 – Definitely a cult following, but an easy follow-along for newbies
Sneakers/Props: Barefoot. Bring lots of water. Mats + towels are free – Yay!
Shower/Locker Situation: Showers (with Malin + Goetz products), + digi locks
Vibe: It’s pretty, clean & new with a trendy WeHo scene. Celeb hotspot – no pun intended (James Franco was in our class the first time we went & Zac Efron the 2nd time … !!)
Similar to: Flex IR. We thought of it as Core Power Yoga meets mat pilates.
Extras: On CP, 1st timers get 2 classes for $30! Studio is located behind Eden Sassoon WeHo: you have to walk through the alley to a parking lot to get there (we got lost the first time and were totally frantic), and parking is FREE.
Go Back? Yes – we went two days in a row!
