Dynamic and Personalized Group Pilates Classes

Pilates exercise offers a wide range of health benefits including enhanced flexibility, increased core muscle strength, improved posture, and corrected muscular balance. John Garey Fitness & Pilates are experts in the STOTT PILATES® method, which offers a contemporary and customizable approach to Pilates that delivers all the benefits and is applicable for every body type. Our studio is the only licensed STOTT PILATES training center in the Los Angeles and Orange County areas, which is why you should join us in our group Pilates classes!

John Garey Fitness & Pilates offers an extensive range of both mat and reformer group Pilates classes. Clients attending group Pilates classes enjoy targeted workouts in a dedicated private group Pilates training space featuring 10 STOTT PILATES reformers and stability chairs, plus other Pilates apparatus.

Group Pilates Mat Classes

Mat work helps increase body awareness, strengthen your core, and achieve a long, lean look. Group Pilates mat classes are held in a designated space in the studio and led by experienced Pilates instructors.

Pilates Mat features STOTT PILATES and incorporates a full body workout with emphasis on toning the core and midsection. Clients can gain full body strength along with improved body awareness, posture, and flexibility.

Pilates Mat Athletic Conditioning (AC) combines traditional mat work with athletic movement and using resistance equipment. Dynamic movement sequences use the body’s weight against gravity for whole body strength and stability.

Group Pilates Reformer Classes

Reformer classes are an excellent way for a safe, fun workout with incredibly effective results! Pilates reformer classes are held in our dedicated Pilates space and a free reformer orientation is required before participating in any group Pilates reformer class.

Reformer Orientation is an introductory group pilates class to help you safely use, adjust, and workout on the STOTT PILATES Reformer. Wear your workout gear and learn the basic principles plus some essential reformer exercises. Reformer orientation is free with your Pilates membership or with a purchase of a reformer package.

Reformer Pure is perfect for anyone beginning Pilates or those looking to perfect, and get the most out of, basic Pilates reformer exercises. In addition to increasing body awareness and strengthening the core, expect muscle balance around the joints for improved posture.

Reformer Athletic Conditioning (AC) is unique, challenging, and open to all clients! AC uses both the reformer and Pilates chair to increase strength, mobility, and endurance. While ideal for athletes, the emphasis is on fun, fast, and safe fitness for all!  While all levels are welcome, taking the Pilates Pure and/or Reformer+ classes several times before joining AC will help you get the most out of this great workout.

Reformer+ combines traditional basic and intermediate reformer and chair exercises for a full body workout. While all levels are welcome, taking the Pilates Pure class before joining Reformer+ will help you get the most out of this great workout!

Reformer Advanced incorporates both the reformer and chair to challenge those who have mastered essential and intermediate level exercise and have taken at least 20 reformer Pilates classes previously. Intense and fast-paced, Reformer Advanced will take you to a new level of fitness! While all levels are welcome, taking the Pilates Pure and/or Reformer+ classes several times before joining AC will help you get the most out of this great workout.

Jumpboard+ is the best way to burn calories and have fun! Jumpboard+ is low impact, high intensity using the Jumpboard or Cardio-Tramp Rebounder.  A trampoline surface (cardio trampoline) is attached to the end of the reformer allowing you to jump while lying on your back. This unique class is perfect for anyone looking to get a combination of pilates and cardio in one 50 minute session. All levels are welcome, and workouts are done lying down to protect the back while focusing on hip, knee, and ankle alignment.
