This is my first time to take a SESSION Pilates class. Do you recommend that I take a private session first?
Unlike traditional Pilates, our group class format doesn’t require a private session. Our skilled instructors are great at adjusting and modifying for all fitness levels. However, if you have chronic back pain, painful joints, or a severe medical condition, we recommended you take a private first to assess your fitness level. If you have concerns about your ability to participate in a group class, please let us know and we will gladly assess whether it is appropriate.
Do you have lockers/showers?
We do have lockers for you to store your belongings in while taking class, and if there is no front desk, we lock the studio door 5 minutes after class starts to make sure your belongings stay safe and sound. We do not have showers, but don't worry! We have lots of products for you to freshen up with post-session.
Do you provide water?
Absolutely! We sell Boxed Water in the studio for $2.50 or we have filtered water stations.
How early should I arrive to class?
If it is your first time, we recommend arriving 10 minutes before class starts so that we can walk you through our studio and equipment. This way, you feel as comfortable as possible before class begins.
If it isn’t your first time, we recommend 5 minutes before the class. Please note that the studio door will remain locked until 10 minutes before class begins so that we are able to properly disinfect the studio between classes.
What if I arrive late?
While we recommend that you arrive 5 minutes before class starts, we do understand that life happens. In the case that you are running more than 5 minutes late to class, you will need to call the studio as the door will be locked 5 minutes after the start of every session. If you do not call, your reserved spot may be forfeited to a standby client.
A $15 late cancel fee will be applied to your account for any cancellations that occur within 12 hours from the start of the class time. A $25 no show fee will be applied to your account for any cancellations that occur within 2 hours of the start of the class time or if you no show the class. Any unclaimed reformers may be given to a stand-by client 5 minutes after class starts.
What should I wear?
We recommend you wear something that is comfortable to move in that you would traditionally wear to work out or do yoga in. For safety and sanitary reasons, we do require all clients to wear non-slip socks while on the reformer. If you do not have any—or it's just time for a fresh pair—we sell some pretty snazzy sticky socks in-studio for $10.
Where should I park?
UPTOWN: We have a few parking sports along the side of our building—on the corner of Cole and Fitzhugh. If those are all occupied, you can park curbside—along Cole Avenue or across the street at Sigel's.
LOVERS LANE: You may park anywhere in the shopping strip along Lovers Lane or along Amherst Avenue, which is just behind the studio. *Please do not park in the lot to the left of our studio that is designated for Chip's Old Fashioned Hamburger.
LAKEWOOD: Anywhere! There is ample parking throughout Hillside Village Shopping Center.
How old do you have to be to take a SESSION class?
We welcome anyone 14 years or older, but require that a parent take with any client between the ages of 14-16. If you are 16-18 years old, we require a parent/guardian signature of permission to be signed prior to your first session, which can be signed upon arrival at the studio.
Are there different class levels?
No, our standard session is formatted for all fitness levels! That being said, all instructors provide modifications and advancements throughout every class.
Can I take if I am pregnant?
If you have been working out with SESSION before becoming pregnant, you can continue to do so as long as you are comfortable! Be sure to let front desk or the instructor know so that we can put an alert on your account and so that the instructor may provide modifications for you throughout your session.
**Doctors do not advise that you try a new workout while pregnant. For that reason, we do not allow first-time clients who are pregnant. If you are pregnant and have NEVER taken class at SESSION Pilates prior to becoming pregnant, we kindly ask that you wait to take your first session with us until you are no longer pregnant.
How do I create an account?
Oh, this is super easy! We recommend downloading the SESSION Pilates app. You can create and manage your account with our app, as well as purchase classes and manage your schedule.
Or you can simply click the green “book now” button on the left-hand side of this screen. Once it redirects you, click the “Sign Up” button and follow the instructions.
How do I book a private?
If you are interested in a private, first go ahead and set up an account with us. When you are done, email us at email@example.com requesting a private and giving us as much information about why you are interested in a private. From there, you will hear back from us shortly with more information and if we think it's the right fit and/or if any of our instructors are available. Please note that we have limited availability when it comes to scheduling privates as our studios are only available when there is not an existing group class scheduled.
