What you need to know

heart Why it's good for me

Offering a full body workout, that also works wonders for the mind, the benefits of Pilates are far-reaching. From tightening and toning your whole body to stabilizing and lengthening your muscles, and increasing your overall strength, there are many reasons for you to integrate Pilates regularly into your schedule.

heartbeat Frequency

In his book, Return to Life Through Contrology [Pilates], Joseph Pilates suggests that we practice Pilates at least four times per week. His interpretation would be four full workouts (i.e. a complete classical mat routine or Pilates equipment class).


While that would be great, we understand that that may not be feasible for you. We suggest you try to complete two Pilates equipment classes each week, with additional balanced Pilates mat work on the other days. 

goal Types of Pilates

Pilates, which is one of the most popular forms of exercise, is a workout that helps to tone and strengthen the body. But Pilates is not a singular form of movement, with a number of varieties being available:

 

  • Mat Pilates

FAQ

Can I do Pilates if I'm not flexible?

Absolutely! We offer demo Pilates classes and one-on-one sessions that can help if you feel unsure or unstable when you first begin. You're also encouraged to only go as far as you can comfortably with each movement. As you practice more, you'll notice that your flexibility increases.

What types of Pilates do you offer at the Club?

We offer both mat and reformer Pilates. Please note that some methods are only offered through one-on-one sessions rather than classes. We encourage you to keep trying the different methods and classes until you find one or two that you love!

What should I bring to class/my session?

All we ask you to bring to our Pilates classes and sessions is hydration. You can fill up your water bottle at any of our water stations throughout the Club. We provide all equipment and towels that you will need.

How soon should I arrive before my class/session?

If you're new to the class or are having your first session, please arrive 5 minutes beforehand. This will give the instructor enough time to introduce themselves and get you familiar with their style/the class' style.

How do I sign-up for Pilates classes/sessions?

If you're already a Toronto Athletic Club Member, please email Stephanie to get started.
