FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

General FAQ's

Who is Pilates good for?


Everybody Needs Pilates! Members at Sculpt range from teens to seniors. With multiple class styles and levels, Sculpt has a workout and instructor that will work for you. If you have very specific goals or workout requirements due to injury, we strongly recommend starting with private training sessions that are tailored to your personal needs.




Why should I try Pilates?


Pilates conditions the smaller muscles throughout the body giving you the ability to improve your balance, mobility, and stability while preventing injuries. It is a full-body, low-impact workout that works on building core strength without overloading or stressing joints. Many clients have reported an increase in bone density by their physician after practicig Pilates regularly.




Can Pilates help relieve stress?


Pilates is amazing because it helps relieve both physical and mental stress at the same time. The exercises in Pilates require concentration on the movement as well as the breath so the stresses of your day are replaced by calm focus. We all have physical stresses on our bodies – even just by sitting in traffic during long commutes or being on our feet all day. Pilates re-sets the body’s alignment and the movements work to add synovial fluid to the joints which helps reduce friction in movements.




What equipment is used in Pilates?


When you walk into most Pilates studios, you will notice a variety of equipment. The Reformer is the main apparatus that you work on which uses your own body weight as well as springs and straps to increase or decrease the challenge. Your instructor will help you get used to the new motions, and be prepared to feel muscles that you’ve never felt before!! The Fuse Ladders, Bosu balls, jump boards, and Bodhi suspension systems are additional pieces of equipment used in class. They all add variety and constant challenges to each class session, so you are guaranteed to never be bored! If you opt for Private session you will also have the opportunity to use a Pilates Chair and a Pilates Cadillac machine.




How much does a membership at Sculpt cost?


We have a variety of package options available to our clients, however if you're not finding something that works for you please call, text, message or email and we will be happy to work with you to find something that fits your budget.




How should I feel during a Pilates session?


During any Pilates session, you may find yourself shaking when executing various exercises, and that shaking is exactly what helps strengthen your muscles and joints. The point of shake is feedback from your body labeling where weaknesses, instabilities, and imbalances are. Pilates challenges stabilizing muscles that aren’t regularly activated during daily activities so they will fatigue quickly and you may shake or feel a burn in your body. It’s common in Pilates to feel sore the next day, usually in places you’ve never felt sore before! This is a good thing :)




I think I need moral support...can I bring a friend?


Absolutely! You will find that the Sculpt community is not only really fun but, also welcoming and inclusive. Have your friend sign up for the same class you’re going to or meet a new friend at the studio! We promise you'll love everyone :)
