What should I expect during the different types of classes?
Group studio classes are either 45 minutes or an hour long, depending on the class. A low impact warm-up begins each class, followed by exercise sequences specific to each class. You might use light weights, the ballet barre, and other small accessories incorporated into choreography to work the core, joint stabilizers, and every major muscle group to the point of fatigue. This is the most efficient way to break through training thresholds and develop strength and muscle definition.
Group equipment classes will begin with getting you comfortable with the machine you are using (reformer, stability chair, jumpboard, etc) and are followed by a full-body workout with a maximum of 3 clients (at Burnet Road) or 4 clients (at Westlake) in a small group atmosphere.
A thorough stretch sequence follows all of our workouts to prevent injuries, improve blood flow, increase flexibility, and decrease soreness and stress. Classes are leveled so please read the descriptions to choose an appropriate level for you, or contact us if you need additional guidance.
