The supercool Frame studios are all about reformer Pilates, so if you’re new to those weird springy beds with neck braces and straps, you’ve come to the right place. Their basic Pilates reformer class will walk your through the techniques slowly, and once you’ve got a few of those sessions under your belt, you can slide on over to their regular classes. They also do a dynamic class for master core blasters who love to feel the burn.
Various locations. Drop-ins £12-20 per class. Cheaper options if you buy a Frame Card.
Perhaps you spent most of 2020 training in front of a laptop screen, maybe you started an outdoor workout regime to make sure you got as much time out of your flat as was legal, possibly you sacked off exercise all together in favour of focusing on just getting through the damn pandemic... All of the above were the correct decision. Now, finally, we all have more options.
Gym classes are back from May 17 and, with them, a whole load of fun ways to work out just like it's the olden days (2019). Top of our list? Pilates.

And it doesn’t matter whether they’re mat-based, inspired by ballet or take place on a reformer machine – these fun and fancy classes won’t leave you bent out of shape.
