Fitness & Pilates Workshops
Workshops to get you started and keep you going
Workshops are a great option to learn Pilates, fitness, and conditioning techniques so that you work out correctly over a period of time. Often an entry point when you are new or returning to a workout routine, workshops are taught by certified fitness and Pilates instructors and will help you progress and feel confident about your workout. Workshops are generally four to six weeks in length. Attending regularly for a set period of time will motivate you and hold you accountable.
*All workshops require enrollment ahead of time and are non-refundable after enrollment.

If your hesitation has been how to use the machine correctly, or how to get started when it looks so challenging, this workshop is your answer!
