How To Get Started | Pilates By The Bay

New to Pilates?… Here’s how to Start!


Want to learn Pilates on the Equipment?

Call (732) 300-4917 to schedule your first appointment.

All new clients need to begin learning pilates on the equipment with a few private sessions. At the beginning there is a lot of new technique to learn! Pilates teaches anatomy, alignment and responding to very subtle queues; and learning to do these things while on the moving equipment can be challenging.

Don’t be intimidated! We make it easy and fun to get acclimated on the equipment so you’ll be comfortable joining a semi-private class (if that’s your goal), or just give you some intro sessions at a deeply discounted rate to see if you love the method before investing in an ongoing practice

These intro private sessions are designed to give new clients of all fitness levels, or physical limitations, one-on-one time to learn the movement fundamentals along with some basic equipment choreography at a comfortable pace before joining a class.

We offer a special introductory package for first time clients which includes three 55-min private sessions  and a bonus free Semi-Private Equipment Class.  This Private Session Intro Package ($195), is a mandatory prerequisite for all new clients wanting to take equipment classes – even if you have been taking Pilates mat classes at another studio or gym. (Pilates Mat & Barre classes at our studio do not require the prerequisite private sessions. Please see below.)

Note: If you are an out-of-town visitor who regularly takes Pilates equipment classes a minimum of 1 X per week at another certified studio, this prerequisite may be met with the following:

  • an interview with the studio owner to determine qualification,
  • a signed letter detailing your equipment experience emailed from your current Pilates studio;
  • or completion of one 40-min “Private Session Sample Session” ($35) for evaluation.

Please call 732-300-4917 for more details or to schedule your first appointment.
