From 11 November 2022, Virgin Active will be rolling out specialist programmes across their Group Exercise Experiences, reinforcing their commitment to provide the highest quality in training, coaching, and class experience. The first of such specialist programmes to be launched in November 2022 is its Reformer Pilates Programme, which will turn “traditional” Reformer Pilates on its head, with the creation of three Reformer Pilates classes: Introduction, Align and Athletic. Music plays a big part in this Reformer Pilates programme, setting the energy and vibe for the class ahead.
Julian Bera, Country Director of Virgin Active Singapore says, “Besides amazing holistic fitness & wellness facilities, Virgin Active is passionate about delivering expertly crafted, quality programs. Reformer Pilates is one of the focuses of our Group Exercise Experience and we are excited to present what we think it can be. For those who are looking for something more “traditional”, try our Intro & Align classes. For those who are looking for a high energy experience, our Athletic class would be perfect. Imagine your high-intensity interval training (HIIT) workout conducted on the Reformer bed, aiding your stretches and reach. Our Reformer Pilates classes are all about the vibe and energy you are looking to bring for the day.”
Virgin Active’s Reformer Pilates Programme
All-new Reformer Pilates classes offered are Reformer Introduction, Reformer Align and Reformer Athletic. Reformer Introduction is the perfect place to get an introduction to the Reformer bed and foundational Reformer repertoire.
Reformer Align classes bear the closest resemblance to a traditional Reformer class with strong, focused, and steady movements. Students will leave an Align class feeling centred, refreshed, and accomplished after a sequence of exercises that will awaken parts of their bodies and minds they did not know existed.
Reformer Athletic, on the other hand, will bring the high-energy cardio, strength, and musical experience of a HIIT and dance class, into the Reformer studio. It combines the principles of Reformer Pilates with the best elements of HIIT training, with a no holds barred, uplifted and fearless mindset.
Not only will students receive the full benefits of a Reformer Pilates workout, such as untapped strength, balance, coordination and greater mobility and cardiovascular output, but they will also ignite an unstoppable, powerful and fearless set of capabilities. Reformer Athletic follows HIIT principles with bursts of work, followed by rest, all accompanied by expert coaching and pumping music. Renée Rommeswinkel, Head of Reformer Pilates in Virgin Active Singapore, says “With the 3 new Reformer Pilates class types, we hope to attract a larger audience of participants. Introduction and Align are focused on mindfulness and recovery; while Athletic is for those who love a good sweat-fest, as well as the pace and energy of a HIIT class.”
Virgin Active’s brand-new Reformer Pilates Programme will roll-out across all its 6 clubs islandwide from 11 November 2022.
