The workout is designed to work your body to muscle fatigue at which point you need to rest and recover.
If this is your only form of exercise, we recommend taking 3-5 classes per week (max!) to see and feel results. By attending regularly, your mind-muscle connection will be constantly fired and you’ll be amazed at how quickly you’ll see results.
You will burn fat, increase flexibility and balance, jump-start your metabolism, strengthen your entire body and ultimately, be in the best shape of your life.
If you regularly practice another intense fitness regimen, taking our class 1-2 days per week is great.
Our workout does not require you to start with private sessions or a beginner-level class. We believe in learning by doing – and our classes are designed to work for all levels in a personalized group setting. We are team-oriented and motivating, and our encouraging atmosphere guarantees optimal fitness results. We offer a truly judgement-free and non-intimidating environment. Beginners may find their first class confusing, but don’t be discouraged. It takes around 5-8 classes to gain the comfort level associated with a better understanding of the workout, and we’re here to guide you through it. Your coach will give you a tour of the machine before class starts and will also discuss any potential physical limitations you might have. You’ll receive a lot of personal attention during your workout. Modifications are possible for almost every exercise, to suit your current fitness level.
Possibly! We ask that members arrive no later than 5 minutes prior to the scheduled start time. If you arrive after class has started, your spot may be given to a waitlisted client. All clients attending their first class at InstaPhysique must arrive 10 minutes early for an introduction the machine.
The Megaformer is not a Pilates machine and we do not teach Pilates on it. While we do have a couple of things in common (both workouts are low-impact and utilize a machine), that is where the similarities end.
Our classes are athletic, fast-paced and intense, but we move with control and minimize impact on joints. Though both workouts are low impact, ours is performed at a much higher intensity with cardiovascular elements.
Think of our workout as a healthy alternative to high-impact bootcamps or HIIT training.
