Pilates Reformer | Group Class: Survival Guide

So you’re ready to sign up for a Pilates Reformer | Classic class at Higher Terrain, great. Here are a few tips to get the most out of your workout for our Pilates newbies!

  1. Let the Pilates instructor know this is your first class. This will allow us to walk you through the use of the Pilates Reformer, so you will be a pro by the end of the workout!
  2. Discuss any injuries, or limitations you may have with the instructor prior to the start of class. This will give the instructor a heads up, and allow them to guide you through modifications of any of the Pilates exercises performed during class in order to keep you safe and injury free.
  3. Bring your Pilates socks! We have a wide selection of grippy socks for sale at the studio. Although not required for our Pilates classes, wearing grip socks adds stability for clients on the Reformer, and helps us keep our studio clean.

We hope to see you soon in a Pilates Reformer class!

Love, and Planks
