  • We don’t wear shoes in Pilates so wash your socks
  • The preliminary stretch is very important for safety, so arrive on time as latecomers often can’t join in as they haven’t had time to limber up
  • You will learn about how to breathe, engage your core, keep a neutral spine and move all at the same time. It can take a few sessions for it to click. Be patient with yourself

Body Conditioning

  • Body Conditioning requires you to wear trainers with good support.
  • Water is readily available as it is a sweaty pursuit. Drinking water helps keep your balance, hydrate and lose weight.
  • Ensure you smell good for the hour.
  • Body Conditioning is a seasonal class and comes to The elbowroom in January and September.


  • Zumba class requires you to wear inside training or dance shoes
  • Double bra support is good for women with more bounce on top!
  • Be prepared to have a laugh

Do you still need help in deciding what is right for you?
