Jump Reformer + Barre: combines toning and stability benefits of standing barre work with cardio jump intervals on the reformer.
This was my first reformer class ever and I thought it was so fun! I didn’t know if you always jump in reformer classes or if that is specific to “jump reformer” but I loved the jumping moves! I could definitely feel the burn in my legs and I loved the different jump moves to work all parts of the legs. I couldn’t wait to go back! I have since learned, through taking a “regular” reformer class, that the jumping is unique to the “jump reformer” class and it is now my favorite! I love it!
Mixed Level Reformer Class: A class for any level. The class utilizes spring based resistance to movements that focus on creating overall balanced strength and flexibility. This was my second reformer class and I have to say, it wasn’t as fun without the jumping. Definitely more focus on toning and proper form. I was feeling the burn at times and I definitely enjoy using the reformer but I think it takes some getting used to.
Bottom Line: I love Awaken Pilates studio. It is so adorable, the instructors have been great, the classes are excellent and overall, a great experience and another one of my favorite Minneapolis fitness studios that I go the ClassPass monthly max of 3x.
