So you decided to book your first session… now what? Starting something new always comes with a little uncertainty. From knowing where to park, what to wear and what will happen when you walk through the door, it can be a lot. Don’t worry though, we are here to guide you on what you can expect from coming to a session with us.
What to Bring
We recommend bringing a water bottle with you, we do actually work up a sweat in Pilates! If you have not purchased one of our intro packages prior to your first session, please come prepared with cash/check or credit card.
What to Wear
Something that you feel good moving in! Typically you’ll find our class goers in yoga pants/capris, men in gym shorts with bike shorts underneath, a comfortable t-shirt or tank top that is not too baggy and socks. If you forget your socks, don’t fret, we have some available for purchase in the studio.
We are very happy to tell you that we have available parking to the side of our studio. Spaces that allow for three hours use, no worry of running to any downtown meter before your session.
When to Arrive
When visiting the studio for your first time, we recommend arriving 5-10 minutes early. This will give you time to use the washroom if needed, sign our waiver and be on time for class. Before you book your session you will be able to talk with staff about any body limitations, concerns or goals. If you would like extra time to discuss with your instructor prior to class, we recommend arriving closer to the 10-minute mark.
What to Expect
When you walk into our bright studio you will be greeted by one of our instructors, and showed the lay of the land. After this, you will be asked to sign our waiver, disclose any injuries or pain that you may be experiencing, and potentially be given some modifications before class. You will be introduced to our awesome clients, they really are the best and we don’t mind bragging.
Once class begins you will be guided through your workout, any springs or equipment used will be explained to you, no need to guess your spring tensions. If any questions arise in class, do not hesitate to ask! If you don’t feel comfortable asking just yet in class, make sure to check in after with one of our friendly instructors.
The most important thing to remember is to have fun! Movement does heal, but it also just feels good. We hope to have you leave the studio feeling better than when you arrived. For more information on how to start training with us, head to our Group Classes or Private/Duet Sessions tab.
Hope to meet you soon!
