Exciting news - Reform Fitness is opening in Commercial Bay on February 12!
This prime location is perfect for those wanting to incorporate Pilates into their pre-work, post-work, or even lunch-hour routines.
At Reform Pilates, they do things a little differently to your standard pilates class. Forget holistic, slow, soul searching pilates and think body enhancing, muscle trembling dynamic reformer pilates.
Directors Jane and Lane want to change the perception of traditional pilates and show that they can create body changing experiences that are respected as one of the hardest, most challenging forms of exercise.
The result is the toning of long, lean muscles FAST by combining exercise and stretching into your routine. Their dynamic approach is more intense, based on the ‘isolate, fatigue, stretch principle’, or in laments terms ‘find it (muscle), thrash it (exhaust it), stretch it. Integrating into this a combined weight training programme, their approach is designed to slim figures, improve posture and build toned muscles.
Reform combines controlled functional exercises, focusing on the duration of muscle activity to achieve fatigue, as opposed to load (common in gym settings). Aimed at full body workouts, as opposed to focusing on one muscle group per exercise, reformer pilates provides an intense session that is easy on the joints and will guarantee to have you screaming for more.
Find them at the top of the escalators leading up from the waterfront square to Harbour Eats. Beyond being just a studio, it's the ideal space to recharge after your class.
