Whether you are brand new or a regular pFIT goer, this is for you!
Based off our signature pilatesFIT method, This is an entire body workout that will challenge you physically and mentally as you improve strength, tone & flexibility on and off the Reformer.
Progressions and regressions are given throughout and as you feel more confident moving on the Reformer, begin to flow movements and transition with minimal rest for that extra challenge. Once you feel confident with moving around on the Reformer, we highly recommend stepping into pFIT Method.

REFORMER / MAX 6 CLIENTS (45MINS)
You’ve got the hang of the way we move at pilatesFIT, so now it’s time to introduce you to the ultimate pFIT workout. Our signature method is about quick transitions on and off the Reformer that flow from one movement to the next with minimal rest. The heart rate will rise and the body will start to shake so the aim is to intensify the burn by dropping a little lower and pulsing a little longer while resisting the urge to stop.
Based on the Reformer, we also utilise a mix of small equipment including Swiss balls, small weights, resistance bands & slider discs.
NOT SUITABLE FOR BEGINNERS. A minimum number of 6 pFIT Core sessions and/or experience using the Reformer is required before attending a pFIT Method class. Speak to an Instructor before booking in to see if/when this session is suitable for you.
