PilatesFIT - MOVE

Pilates FIT Move is a group fitness class designed to get you moving.

Catering for those looking for gentle exercise to improve balance, strength, flexibility and range of motion.  Perfect for those looking for a social way to be active.

Pilates FIT Move is a class for everyone.  You do not need to be fit or flexible to begin classes.  If you are nervous about exercise, aspects of the class can be modified depending on abilities, so that you get the most out of each session.

PilatesFIT MOVE classes cater for all individuals, with all classes providing thorough support and guidance from your instructor. With a maximum of 8 participants per session, there is strong attention to detail, and you can be sure you are performing each exercise safely and correctly.

Depending on the nature and severity of your injury, and because exercises can be modified or regressed, it is generally fine to attend PilatesFIT classes. Please remember, the goal of PilatesFIT classes is not to rehabilitate specific injuries. If you’re unsure if these classes are appropriate in your specific circumstance, please have a chat to your practitioner at the clinic.

Classes run for 50 minutes and utilise mostly reformer based exercises. Each class will be different to the last, and will incorporate both Pilates and resistance training. The aim of each class is the same, to isolate and fatigue, increasing your body’s strength and endurance. At the end of each class, there will be time to stretch to assist in recovery and improve flexibility.

Wear comfortable, gym appropriate clothing that will allow you to move freely. Please avoid overly baggy clothing as your instructor needs to see how your body is positioned and moving.
Prepare to get a little sweaty, so you may also like to bring a small hand towel and a water bottle.  Grip socks are required to be worn and can be purchased from the clinic reception.

As PilatesFIT is a general fitness program, it is generally not claimable through your private health insurance. If you have a specific injury that requires management and rehabilitation, we recommend our PIER program which does incorporate Pilates inspired exercise.

Due to the nature of these classes, pre-payment for sessions is required. The easiest way to purchase and book classes is online via our website. You can choose to purchase single classes or cost effective multi-class packs.
