THIS WILL BE MY FIRST TIME TO TAKE A CLASS AT PILATES PLATINUM, SHOULD I DO A PRIVATE SESSION FIRST?

Unlike traditional pilates, our workout does not require you to start with private sessions due to the fact that the classes are designed to work in a group setting. Because clients have their own machine, you can modify each exercise to suit your current fitness level. Most new clients do fine stepping into our group classes. However, if you have chronic back pain, painful joints or a severe medical condition, it is recommended to take a private session first to assess your fitness level. If you are concerned, just let us know and we will take care of you.

HOW OFTEN SHOULD I TAKE A PILATES PLATINUM CLASS?

The 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 three 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 for you.

HOW DO I SCHEDULE A SESSION?

We have an easy to use and extremely secure software system to assist you in reserving a session. We recommend all of our members get familiar with our automated online booking system here on www.pilatesplatinum.com. It is the easiest, fastest, and most accurate way to book classes. Simply create a user name and password, and use it to schedule, purchase and track your visit history. If you forget your password or need more information, please send us an email.

WHAT HAPPENS IF I MISS A CLASS?

Due to the limited number of spaces available in each session, all group classes require an 8-hour cancellation notice and all private sessions require a 24-hour cancellation notice. Unlimited memberships will be charge $15 for a late cancel and $20 for a no show if a class is not cancelled in advance of the noted cancellation period. Group packages and monthly packages will forfeit their class if a class is not cancelled in advance of the noted cancellation period.

WILL MY SPOT BE GIVEN AWAY IF I AM LATE TO CLASS?

Yes. It is very important to arrive on time as a respect to the studio and other clients. Many times, clients will drop in to see if someone doesn’t show allowing them a space in the class. If you do not arrive within 10 minutes of the scheduled class time, your space may be given to someone who is waiting. Be sure to sign in to class so we know you were present!
