Please read the following Frequently Asked Questions before attending your first class:
** I HAVE NEVER TRIED PILATES. CAN I TAKE A CLASS OR SHOULD I DO A PRIVATE SESSION FIRST?
We recommend that all new students start off with a FORM class. It’s a slightly slower paced class focusing on proper form and technique for all exercises. The workout is intense but the routine is kept simple to make sure everyone is using good form. However, if you have chronic back pain, painful joints or a severe medical condition, consult your physician before starting any kind of fitness regimen. Consider booking a private session to assess your fitness level and to review proper technique.
** HOW DO I PREPARE FOR MY FIRST CLASS OR PRIVATE SESSION?
If you are not familiar with our studio location, print out our map that includes our parking information: studio maps. Please arrive at least 10-minutes early to sign paper work, meet your instructor and go over proper use of the equipment.
Most importantly, bring a positive attitude. Leave all your worries behind. The class is for you, not the others around you. You need to be present minded when working out to maximize the benefits of the class.
Bring a towel as you will most likely sweat.
Although we have a water available for purchase, we encourage you to bring your own water.
Wear loose, comfortable workout clothes that allow your muscles to stretch and your skin to “breathe”.
If you choose to wear socks, please make sure that the sole has a grip. PILATES+DTLA carries Toezies. Purchase on-line and we’ll have your Toezies available at the studio for pickup within 24-48 hours.
Remove any dangling jewelry.
Wash off any perfume prior to class to respect any allergies of your fellow students and wash your hands and feet of any lotions to prevent slipping.
Turn off your cell phone prior to class.
** HOW OFTEN SHOULD I ATTEND CLASSES AT PILATES+DTLA?
The Lagree Fitness workout is designed to work your body to muscle fatigue at which point you need to rest. Depending on your fitness level and the intensity of your workout, you will need more or less time to recover. We recommend attending 2 to 3 classes per week to allow your body to properly recover and repair. Some students love the workout so much that they come 5 or 6 times a week. Listen to your body.
** WHAT IF I CAN’T COME TO CLASS AND I HAVE ALREADY BEEN CONFIRMED? WILL I BE CHARGED?
Yes, even if it’s your first time. We require a 24-hour notification before making any kind of changes to your schedule. The same rules apply to all unlimited class series. You will be charged the $25 no show/late-cancel fee each time you cancel or reschedule a class without giving us 24-hour notice or if you do not show up for class. THERE ARE NO EXCEPTIONS.
