What is solidcore? Think, Pilates—intensified.
The best way to learn is to jump right in and take a class! You will get personalized attention during your workout since classes are no more than 14 people. You will need to arrive at least 15 minutes before class. During this time you will receive the required machine intro, safety information, and exercise demos from your coach. During class, your coach will give both verbal instructions and hands-on assistance. They will also provide options to modify or amplify each exercise. Be ready to sweat, shake and come back wanting more.
What is a beginner class?
This 50-minute class is your opportunity to learn the basics of the [solidcore] workout that focuses heavily on form and learning the names of the exercises. We highly recommend this class if you’re not in a consistent work-out routine. In comparison to our “all-levels” class, this “beginner” option has brighter lights, softer music, and goes at a slower pace with more explanation. Your coach will guide you through our most popular [solidcore] moves after an extensive machine overview. While this class is not a pre-requisite, it will set you up to best understand the workout and for you get the most out of [solidcore] classes going forward.
What is a community class?
A community class is a class taught by a coach-in-training. We offer these community classes at select times when a studio has new coaches joining the team!
What is an off-peak class?
An off-peak class is a [solidcore] class with the exact same content during off-peak studio hours and therefore is a lower price point. These classes will say “Off-Peak” on the schedule.
Do you have muscle specific classes?
Yes! arms+abs classes target only upper body and core and do not include lower body exercises. If you need a rest day for your glutes and hamstrings, have a long run coming up and want to stay fresh, or are looking for extra attention to your core and arms, these are the classes for you! buns+guns classes target only lower body and upper body, with just a quick core warm up… and no obliques! This class is great if you are pregnant, or if you have experienced a core injury, or if you want the strongest buns & guns on the block. core30 is a quick & intense 30-minute core-focused class. When all you need is a stellar center core & oblique workout to amplify your strength & pair with your current fitness activities. *new clients can not attend a muscle-specfic class listed above as a first time client*
I have never worked out before, will I be able to do the class?
We’re thrilled that you’re thinking about getting into shape with us! [solidcore] is a very efficient and effective way to burn fat and build muscle. Come to class ready for a challenge and to work hard for 50 minutes. Be okay with being uncomfortable. Your [solidcore] coach will assist you with modifications to help you build your strength. This will ensure you feel supported and encouraged throughout the class.
I am in great shape, will this workout challenge me?
Yes, guaranteed. In fact, this is THE workout for you. Because [solidcore] works your slow-twitch muscles to failure, you will feel an intensity like you have never felt before. Triathletes, marathoners, crossfitters, and athletes of all kinds tell us [solidcore] is the hardest workout they have ever tried. You’re going to love the way you feel in class and after class.
Are there any age restrictions to attend solidcore?
Minimum age to attend class is 16, and a guardian must be present if you are under 18.
When should I arrive for class?
Class begins on time. If it your first visit at the studio, please arrive 15 minutes prior to receive a proper introduction to the studio. It is essential to get an overview of the machine and the workout, and your coach will want to have a few minutes to meet you and learn about your fitness background. Your safety is important to us! If you do not arrive in time for your introduction, you may be asked to reschedule.
What should I wear and what should I bring?
- Wear clothes that you are comfortable working out in - Bring a water bottle – we have water fountains at each studio and bottled water available for purchase - No cell phones during classes – let yourself have 50 minutes that is all about you - Jewelry is not a good idea - No strong perfumes or colognes, please - Towels are provided
When will I start to see results?
Everybody and every body is different. On average, if you begin attending class 2-3 days a week, you will start to see and feel changes by the end of week two and you will notice a big difference in your overall strength after 30 days.
How many days a week should I come to class?
This workout is designed to work your body to muscle failure, so recovery time is important. The amount of time your body will need to recover depends on your own personal fitness level and nutrition. Our recommendation is to come 3-4 times a week to get the best results. Remember, our muscles and bodies can’t change without rest and time to rebuild. We HIGHLY recommend taking off two days a week to let your muscles rebuild so you can see extraordinary changes in your body.
What is the cancellation policy?
Due to limited number of spaces available, you can change or cancel your class up to 10 hours before the class starts – please note we do not give refunds; your class will go back in your account for you to use another time. If you cancel within 10 hours before class starts, you will lose the class. We cannot give refunds for any classes that you miss. If you have an unlimited package and you late cancel or a no-show for class, you will be charged a late cancel fee. To Cancel a Reservation: - Sign into your account - Go to “My Info” > “My Schedule” - Click “Cancel” next to the class you wish to cancel
Will I lose my spot if I am late for class?
Yes, if you are 5 minutes late to class, your spot may be taken by someone who is waitlisted or dropping in. It is very important to arrive on time so you can get a balanced workout and do not disrupt class. If you are not at the studio within the first 5 minutes of class you may be marked as a late cancel.
Is there a waitlist for full classes?
If a class you’d like to take is full, we highly recommend putting yourself on the waitlist — it works! When you see that a class is full, click on it, and it will ask you if you want to add your name to the waitlist. If the waitlist is full, it will tell you that too. If a spot opens up, you will be added to the class and receive an email confirmation. IMPORTANT: It is assumed that by being on the waitlist, you will be able to take the class if you get in. If you do not want a spot in the class, you need to remove yourself from the class/waitlist 10 hours in advance of the class start time. When you are added to the class and fail to remove yourself, it will be a Late Cancel and you will forfeit the class. If you do not get off the waitlist, the class will be credited to your account for future use. Please note, the waitlist closes 10 hours prior to the class start time. To Check on Your Waitlist Status: 1. Sign into your account 2. Go to “My Info” > “My Schedule” 3. It will say “Waitlist Unconfirmed” if you got into the class 4. If you can’t remember what classes you waitlisted for, click on the word “Waitlist” on the top right in “My Schedule”
