Contemporary Pilates is based around Joseph Pilates original exercises but has been modernised due to more recent research and influences regarding biomechanics and physical therapy. Trainers may still incorporate some of the original exercises found in Classic Pilates, but there is also a wide range of new exercises that have been added or variations added for specific needs.
Tempo Pilates™ – L1
Our Beginner/Intermediate classes are just under an hour. The first 30 minutes of each class follows our signature repertoire of core Tempo Pilates exercises. These are specifically designed to warm up the body whilst strengthening your core. The second half of the class is the individual trainer’s freestyle, meaning you’ll never get the same class twice.
TP X-Press – L3
Our X-Press classes take the Tempo Pilates method up a gear, incorporating HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) principles and really pushing you to your fitness limits. These sessions are 40 minutes long and designed to give you a challenging full-body workout that will get you sweating – but back to your desk inside the lunch-hour.
Up-Tempo Pilates – L3
Up–Tempo Pilates classes are just under an hour of unapologetic, “tough love” . Challenging your core, flexibility, stamina and overall body strength to its maximum capacity. Overall, the focus is more on control, concentration and precision. In return you will be rewarded by maximum calorie burn and muscle tone.
Tempo HIIT | SE17
This 45 minute high intensity interval training workout was developed with our students looking for a challenge and full body toning in mind. We understand you may have full workloads and hectic social lives. Yet you need to be able to keep fit and healthy too. No previous knowledge of a H.I.I.T. method is required, although due to the speed of the class, it is helpful. Note these classes are only on our Elephant and Castle | SE17 studio schedule.
