If it's Pilates you want to get started with then Reformer Pilates is superior to mat based Pilates as the repertoire of exercises available is greatly increased providing far more variety. Reformer exercises work muscles through a large range of motion which is ideal for building and toning muscles as well increasing stability through the joints.

It works more areas than matwork as matwork is mostly core whereas reformer works the entire body and more the peripheral muscles of the arms and legs.

Reformer Pilates is great for rehab purposes too as it allows you to exercise in a horizontal plane of motion and not be vertically loaded and weight bearing through their legs. 

For example if you have had knee surgery or a knee injury, this horizontal plane enables you to strengthen the muscles of the leg through a larger range of motion using a lighter resistance than their body weight, speeding up recovery through controlled movement.

Reformer Pilates can be used as a sport specific cross training tool. Reformer Pilates works on core stabilisation which is vital to any athlete as well as muscle endurance, lactate tolerance, peripheral joint stability, muscle strength, balance, co-ordination and much more.

Pre and post natal on the Reformer is a great place to ensure you stay active during your pregnancy and after. Ideal to keep your pelvis stable and also build pelvic floor strength. For post natal you are welcome 6 weeks after normal delivery and generally 12 weeks with c-section. 

Our Kick Start Reformer Pilates package is all you need to get started on the reformer. It costs £149 and includes:

- 10 reformer group class passes (valued at £180) More information can be found here 

  1. For your first class try to arrive 10 minutes before class starts ready to exercise so we can register your details if you have not registered online, show you where everything is, and have a chat. After this, try and arrive 5 minutes before each class and check in at the reception desk, even if you have made an online booking.
  2. Please try to arrive ready for your class. We have small changing facilities, but we recommend you arrive ready.
  3. If you are participating in a Hot class please bring a towel – don’t worry if you forget, towels can be hired for £1 from reception. Also remember water – we stock bottled water at £1 per bottle for your convenience, but feel free to bring your own. Drink plenty of water before, during and after class. Water is your new best friend!
  4. Practice on an empty tummy,try to eat no less than 2 hours before class. If you do need a quick pick me up, we suggest natures liquid energy- fruit juice! to keep you going without making you feel uncomfortable during practice.
  5. We ask you to kindly remove your shoes as you enter the Mat room and place them in the shoeboxes in reception. We will look after them for you whilst you practice. Outdoor shoes can carry nasty outdoor things into the facility; we don’t want to share that on our yoga mats!
  6. TRY EVERY CLASS.  Variety is the spice of life; we have tried to offer you a good choice of well-balanced classes. You may find a favorite routine / teacher, or like us, you may love them all!
  7. The studio is based on the 2nd floor at 32 Portman Street, Glasgow, G41 1EJ. Parking after 6pm directly outside the studio is free of charge. If you are coming before 6pm please park at the junction next to Rise as that side of the street you can park all day for free.
