WHERE ARE YOU LOCATED?
We are located at 131 S. Stratford Rd. in the Stratford Village Shopping Center, also home to Midtown Cafe, Schiffman's Jewelers and 5 Points Restaurant. The studio is towards the back of the shopping center on the corner, right next to Deja Vu Nail Salon and across from Nawab Indian Restaurant.
WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT AT MY FIRST CLASS?
All brand new clients to the studio and Megaformer classes MUST arrive 10 minutes early. There will be a brief intake form and liability waiver for you to sign and your instructor will give you a quick orientation of the method and the machine. Make sure that you either bring your own grip socks, or are prepared to purchase a pair at the studio for $15. If you do not arrive at least 10 minutes early for your first class, the instructor has the right to 'late cancel' you from the class. Please understand this policy is in place for safety reasons and to ensure that you and your fellow classmates have the best workout possible. Once class starts you will experience one of the most challenging workouts of your life!
SHOULD I TAKE A PRIVATE LESSON FIRST?
Unlike our traditional pilates classes, the Megaformer does not require you to start with private sessions due to the fact that the classes are designed to work best in a small group setting. Since each client has their own machine, they can modify each exercise to suit their current fitness level. Most will do fine jumping into group classes. However, if you have chronic back pain, joint pain or a severe medical condition, it is recommended to take a private session first to assess your fitness level. You can email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information on scheduling a private session with one of our instructors.
IF I HAVEN'T BEEN WORKING OUT REGULARLY OR AM NOT AN ATHLETE WILL I BE ABLE TO DO THIS WORKOUT?
YES! We are a place for everyone from beginners to advanced athletes. Our instructors are here to help you every step of the way as you learn and adapt to this workout. Remember you have to start somewhere and always listen to your body, compete with no one and be proud of yourself and what you accomplish in every class you take!
HOW OFTEN SHOULD I TAKE CLASS?
The Megaformer workout is designed to work your body to muscle fatigue at which point you need to rest. Depending on your fitness level and intensity of your workout you will need more or less time to recover. We recommend 2-3 times a week to allow you to properly recover and repair. The key is to listen to your body and find a routine that works best for you.
HOW DO I SIGN UP FOR CLASS?
We have an extremely user friendly and secure software system to assist you in reserving a spot in class. We recommend all of our clients get familiar with our automated online booking system. Simply create a user name and password, and use it to purchase, schedule and track your visit history. If you forget your password or have any issues using the online scheduler please send us an email at email@example.com for assistance.
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR TO CLASS?
- Wear comfortable clothes that are easy to move in and not too baggy as they will caught up in the machine
- Bike shorts (or grippers) must be worn under looser fitting shorts
- Jewelry is NOT a good idea
- Socks with grips are required to take class. You can bring your own or purchase a pair at the studio for $15
- Please refrain from wearing strong perfumes or lotions as some clients are allergic
WHAT SHOULD I BRING WITH ME TO CLASS?
- A hand towel- as you will most likely sweat
- Grip socks
WHY ARE SOCKS WITH GRIPS REQUIRED TO TAKE CLASS?
Your feet can get sweaty in class, and these socks will keep you safe and in place on the machine. Since we are all about keeping things safe and clean we chose to make it a policy that everyone is required to wear toe socks. If you do not have grip socks you will not take class. We sell them at the studio for $15 for your convenience.
WHAT IS THE CANCELLATION POLICY?
All group classes require a 12 hour cancellation notice. Private sessions require a 24 hour cancellation notice. Clients will forfeit their class or session if they don't cancel their class or session in advance of the noted cancellation period. There are no exceptions to this policy. For more detailed information please refer to the 'CANCELLATION POLICY' tab under the 'PRICING' section of this site.
