Maybe in the beginning, the smaller classes went with the small building at 1302 9th St NW where Reformer began earlier this year in January. The studio expanded later into the neighboring building, yet the classes remained small. Huling claims it was not anything planned, it just happened that the space became available. In the original studio there are hooks for TRX straps and 6 movable Reformer Pilates machines. The second building allows for a full TRX and bootcamp studio on the ground floor and space for mat classes and ballet barre classes upstairs.
Reformation Fitness offers several classes at different levels. My class was a Studio Mat Pilates 1.5. I should have found something in the 1.0 range considering I hadn't been inside a gym for about a year. Despite my limitations I got a really good core workout, and I felt it two days later in the right areas. Overhearing the conversation of one of my classmates, the Reformer workouts are challenging and maybe you might not want to take classes too close together.
Functional training, is the focus of Reformation Fitness where the goal is to help clients build strength from the inside out, learning techniques to help with one's goal.
Classes are available by going to their home page at reformation-fitness.com and signing up for classes. At this time there are specials for group reformer (the classes with the reformer machine), studio classes (power yoga, mat pilates, TRX/kettleballs, pointe/barre) or personal training. There was some mention of a 55+ program for 2014, as well as other planned programs for the coming year.
I am very interested in returning to Reformation Fitness, with the Help (my spouse) because of the experience I had and the instruction. The Help has some minor issues (he was a preemie) and I could see where he would greatly benefit from the small classes and personal attention.
