Growfit - Pilates, Strength, Stretcn & Balance for Kids & Teens

A class designed for growing bodies. Classes are made up of combination of Pilates and strength exercises with a focus on inclusive and fun. Expect a focus on core, coordination and balance along with general strengthening. This class is suitable for 10 to 16 year olds.

Participants of all levels of ability are welcome, our team being highly skilled in modifying for the individual in a group setting. Classes of course accommodate for participants of the NDIS (must be self-managed).

Classes run in line with the school term, participants must enrol for the entire term.

Measures will be taken at the start and end of the term to establish baselines, monitor progress and manage and set appropriate goals.

What are the benefits?

A systematic review was conducted to evaluate the effectiveness of Pilates intervention on physical function in children and youth. It demonstrated that Pilates:

· Improves flexibility

· Improves strength

· Improves postural control

· and reduces pain

(Hornsby E, Johnston LM 2020)

Another study looked at the effectiveness of a 6 week core program in school aged children. The results demonstrated the significantly improved truck muscular endurance, movement capability, flexibility and balance!

It's my first class at The Studio, what do I need to know?

Bring along a towel and drink bottle (water available to purchase).  Grip socks must be worn for Reformer Pilates and Barre and are available to purchase at The Studio. Arrive 5-10 minutes prior to class to sign in and find your mat!


I am pregnant can I do classes at The Studio?

 Yes! All of our instructors are trained in the management of exercise in pregnancy and will tailor your program accordingly.  If recently pregnant or post natal an assessment/return to exercise check is required with one of our physiotherapists.  If you are finding it uncomfortable lying on your back we suggest avoiding Reformer Classes and sticking with Barre, TRX or Clinical Pilates for a more individualised approach with the guidance of a Physio.
