It is an individual assessment containing a detailed subjective examination exploring general health, body metrics and discussing specific goals for undertaking Cadence Pilates.

  • Cadence Pilates promotes individual and group based progression. We aim to encourage one another’s progression by focusing on individual goal setting and progressive change, rather than comparison to one another.

  • Each membership is billed on a week by week basis. When you sign up initially there is a minimum spend of 4 weeks total at the rate of 4 weeks of your membership e.g. Foundational Membership minimum spend is $160. Once the minimum spend period is finished the membership may be cancelled at any time.


Helping You Come Prepared

  • Each class does require a booking. We make this as easy as possible but do require the booking to confirm your place as each class is limited to 9 spaces. Please book as early as possible for your preferred classes to ensure your place in the class.

  • Each Cadence Pilates class has a maximum of 9 people per class. We limit the numbers to a smaller number, to allow as much time as possible for individualised supervision and progression. This promotes ongoing progression and increased exercise capacity within a group class, as well as safe exercise and boundary growth over time.

  • Active exercise wear is most appropriate for Cadence Pilates classes.

  • We recommend Pilates socks (which are readily available at our studio) as they allow best feedback through the feet for proprioceptive feedback mechanisms.

  • Non-slip Pilates socks are recommended as there are certain movements during most classes that require a non-slip sole. We have Pilates socks readily available for purchase at our studio, so you’ll never be stuck without a pair.

  • If the class is full add yourself onto the waitlist and you will be sent a text message when a spot becomes available. You must reply to the text message to secure your place.


A Proactive, Scientific & Experience Based Approach

  • Clinical Pilates is supervised by a fully trained professional clinician. As physiotherapists, we are best placed to undertake supervised Pilates classes as we understand the biomechanics and anatomy of the human body through our foundational study and expertise. This creates a greater level of clinical precision and appropriate progression to safely grow and develop within your exercise boundaries.

  • Cadence Pilates is goal focused and has regular reviews of your goals helping you stay motivated to achieve your goals. Trained and specialised physiotherapists have an advanced understanding of anatomy and physiology, as well as goal setting and progressive exercise. We do our absolute best to promote ongoing accountability to exercise and lifestyle change.

  • The Cadence Pilates Intro Session is best undertaken whilst in good physical condition. However, rehabilitation is a common reason for undertaking Cadence Pilates. Our highly skilled physiotherapists are experienced with injury and rehabilitation, and will provide advice on the right time to commence Cadence Pilates.

  • During the Cadence Pilates Intro Session our physiotherapists will examine any old injuries and provide advice regarding self management. An understanding of these injuries from the expert perspective of a physiotherapist will help address correct form and also provide adequate and appropriate boundaries for exercise prescription and supervision within group-based classes.

  • The Cadence Pilates Intro Session is designed to assist us in understanding each individual’s exercise capacity and boundaries. It is our physiotherapists role to gently push each member’s boundaries to allow growth and progression without going too far beyond their exercise capacity. Therefore we reduce injury risk. However, whilst rare, injuries do occur. The benefit of having a highly trained professional physiotherapist running each class is that they can clinically reason in the moment and make a highly informed decision in the moment on whether or not a particular member should continue the workout. Conversely, they can provide injury management advice in the moment to help reduce pain and dysfunction.
