"At the age of 50 after years of weight lifting I tore my rotator cuffs on both shoulders in the same year. My physical therapist suggested Pilates as a venue to get back into an exercise program and I thought he was out of his mind. It was great and Julie was great. She is very knowledgeable and with Pilates being totally outside the box for me she was also very patient. I moved out of the area and missing it to the point I am now researching a Pilates program locally. You'll love the experience including Julie and her leadership." Richard C.

What should I wear to my sessions?
Pilates is performed in either socks or bare feet. Clients should wear comfortable clothing that isn't too baggy. This allows the trainer to see how your body moves.
How often do I need to do Pilates to see results?
It is recommended that Pilates is practiced 2-3 times a week in order to see results.
When will I notice results?
As quoted by Joseph Pilates: "In 10 classes you will feel the difference, In 20 classes you will see the difference, and in 30 classes you will have a whole new body." Clients that commit to class 2-3 times a week generally see results within the first month or two. It is also important to maintain a proper diet and engage in other activities such as cardio.
Who can do Pilates?
Anyone can do Pilates! Please keep in mind that individuals that have chronic pain/injuries may not qualify for group classes. Group classes are catered to individuals that can move pain free at a general fitness level. Classes require individuals to kneel, do planks and hold legs up in the air.
If I am new to the studio do I have to complete a first time introduction?
It is not mandatory to complete an introduction appointment but it is highly recommended. The introduction session allows a new client to work with a trainer and discuss their goals and needs. If a client has injuries or chronic pain it is important to understand modifications and the fundamental principles of the method before joining a class.
What is the difference between matwork and equipment work?
Both matwork and equipment work follow the same fundamental principles. In matwork, your main resistance is the weight of your own body and supporting that while performing a wide variety of exercises. When working with equipment you will work against the weight of springs for resistance and stability. The equipment helps assist people to accomplish some of the exercises, therefore, many people will find that matwork is more challenging. The equipment is most beneficial with clients that might experience chronic back pain or have other physical limitations. If a client is physically capable of doing both matwork and equipment it is recommended that both systems are used for maximum results.
Do I need an appointment to attend classes or can I drop in?
Due to limited space, all services are by appointment only with prepayment. The studio does not have a receptionist on staff and asks that all clients use the online scheduling system in order to manage appointments. There is a 24 cancellation policy.
How far out can I book appointments?
The scheduling system allows clients the ability to book out appointments 4 weeks in advance. The waitlist feature allows clients to book into a time slot that is already taken and be placed on the waitlist. In the event that a client cancels their appointment, the next waiting client will be booked into the slot and an email confirmation will be sent.
Are there class levels?
All classes are taught at a general fitness level unless noted on the schedule. Intermediate classes cater to clients that have been coming to the studio for a long period of time and are well versed in Pilates with no physical limitations.
Do packages have expiration dates?
All new client discounts have a 3 month expiration date from purchase and all other packages expire 6 months after purchase. No refunds, transfers or extensions are given for purchases.
Can I do Pilates if I am pregnant?
If a client gets pregnant and has been doing Pilates before conception they can continue to do Pilates while following workout guidelines that are recommended by their doctor. If you have never done Pilates before and are pregnant it is strongly recommended NOT to begin Pilates because the intense, deep abdominal work can be harmful to the fetus.
“Pilates is exercise for life and Julie is a great teacher for Pilates. Julie provides classes that challenge you while moving at your own pace. When I would accomplish a particular movement Julie would challenge me by adding on something new, in this way the classes are never the same and I was always getting stronger. Her classes are fun, challenging, exciting and are taught in a bright studio. If you're looking for a Pilates class that you can do for the rest of your life I recommend Julie at Pilates Barre.”
