Our Reformer machines provide challenging and dynamic workouts that focus on strengthening the whole body and provide deep and controlled stretching of the spine, hip flexors, hamstrings and gluteals. Both Mat and Reformer exercises build a great foundation for any sporting pursuits and develops effective movement patterns, increased coordination and balance.

Once you’ve done that, you can start enjoying our variety of classes on the schedule. Note: If you’ve been on a reformer before and feel confident using the machine, you can start classes straight away. Call us today if you have questions or need assistance with booking.

Our classes and appointments are focused on achieving the best results for you. Both Mat and Reformer classes offer similar benefits. Mat classes are a great way to learn the foundations of Pilates and we use small props during these classes including bands, small balls and circles. Reformer classes add more variety to the traditional mat exercises, use springs and pulleys to add or decrease resistance plus add more challenge/endurance. You can increase muscle tone and define your abdominal, leg, arm and back muscles faster by using a reformer. Not sure which way to go? Why not try one of each and speak to your instructor for advice.
At Lifeworks, we help people on their rehab journey after injury, surgery or chronic illness. We also understand the emotional support needed by people when they are starting a new exercise routine. We listen to you and work out a plan that best suits your goals. We also welcome input from your GP, Physiotherapist/Osteopath etc.

Pilates is challenging. It takes commitment and time, there are no short cuts to a better body. One or two sessions of pilates is not enough to make significant changes. “You will feel better in 10 sessions, look better in 20 sessions, and have a completely new body in 30 sessions.” (Joseph Pilates).
To start your journey back to a stronger more agile body, you’ll need a private lesson if you have any musculoskeletal problems or recovery after chronic injury/illness. If you do not have pre-existing conditions, you can attend an “Intro to Reformer” class or have a private/duet lesson.
