Rock It Body Pilates was the very first pilates class I took on Classpass when I started my Classpass adventures.  Being completely new to pilates, I was absolutely clueless about the reformer.  I let the instructor know that I was new to pilates and she gave me a quick overview of the straps, springs, pads,and harness, which I immediately forgot once the class started.  Thankfully the class was full so I was able to look over to my neighbors and try my best to attempt all the moves the instructor was teaching.  The beginner class was definitely challenging even though I was fumbling through one move to the next.  Learning how to control the moving carriage with your body is not an easy task.  The springs offer differing levels of resistance as you push and pull the carriage along the reformer.  You will be working your core, thighs, hips and booty.  One of the first things I noticed at Rock It Body, was there were a couple of male attendees in the class.  Which was impressive to me because many people have the stereotypical view that pilates isn’t much of a masculine workout.  I believe once guys take a pilates class, they realize the intensity and difficulty that pilates on the reformer can be, and become hooked to the challenge.  Intimidated?  Rock It Body Pilates provides beginner classes for those new to the reformer.  Perfect for the newbie starting out in pilates.  These classes definitely helped me familiarize myself with the reformer and develop the confidence to try out other pilates classes offered on Classpass.
