KX Pilates is a combination of traditional Pilates with the strengthening and toning aspects of circuit training. Our dynamic, fast paced, high performance classes are performed on a spring resistance apparatus called a Reformer Bed, specifically customised for KX Pilates and our dynamic style of training.

No! Our KX at home videos have exercises for both a reformer bed and mat-based pilates, so no matter what equipment you have at home, you can still complete your KX workout.

The equipment you need will depend on the class you participate in. Some videos may use a Pilates ring or dumbbells – if you don’t have the equipment at home, you can modify the movement or hold something else with a similar weight (like a bag of sugar).

KX Pilates is currently offered as online classes. We don’t have any physical locations within the US. Interested in opening a KX Pilates studio? Submit an enquiry.

It will depend on your injury and your road to recovery. You may need to get a medical certificate from your GP/Physio before you can attend, or start with a private class to assess if classes will be appropriate in the future. It’s best to speak to one of our Trainers before participating in a class to make sure you’re not putting yourself at risk of further damage.

Yes, we offer both 1-on-1 and 2-on-1 Private Classes. If you would like Private Classes with training tailored to your specific needs, please contact your local studio directly.

It depends how far along you are. If you are new to KX Pilates, we ask that you not start our classes until after your pregnancy. For current clients, you can attend group classes but only until you’re 13 weeks along. After this, due to our dynamic style of training, you can no longer attend group classes. We do however recommend you either have a private session or attend our Pre/Post natal or Parents & Bubs classes.

For further information, please download and have a read of our Pre and Post Natal Exercise at KX Information Sheet.

We ask that you wait until after you receive the all clear from your 6 week GP/Obstetrician check up to make sure that everything is healing well and there are no diastasis recti (abdominal separation) issues.

No you cannot. Due to health & safety requirements, you are unable to bring your baby or child into the studio. You can attend our Parents & Bubs classes, specifically designed for parents with newborns up to crawling age.

Please wait until you have received the all clear from your 6 week check-up. Complete the Post Natal Exercise Questionnaire and bring it to your first class. It is also strongly recommended that whenever you start back at KX Pilates after a break; ensure you begin again in a Beginner class.

For further information, please download and have a read of our Pre and Post Natal Exercise at KX Information Sheet.

You can only attend group pilates classes up until you’re 13 weeks along. Before booking your first group class, please contact your local studio for a list of qualified pre and post-natal Trainers. You must inform your Trainer what week you are up to at the beginning of each class, as modifications of certain exercises will be required. You must also have your Obstetrician complete the Pregnancy Authorisation to Exercise Form and return it to us upon arrival at your first class.

The Introductory Offer of 5 Sessions for $60 to use within 2 weeks is only available to new clients of KX (first timers) and is activated from the date of your first booking. You can only use the Introductory offer once per person and this cannot be used in conjunction with any other opening offer. You have a 2 week period to use your 5 sessions and any unused sessions will expire.

Yes you can, however you will need to create a new account at each studio separately, and purchase a valid session pack for each studio individually.

Classes need a minimum of 2 clients to proceed. Classes will be cancelled up to 2 hours before the start time of the class if there are less than 2 people booked in.

When starting at KX Pilates, we ask that you attend at least 4-6 Beginner classes to familiarise yourself with our dynamic training method, basic principles and exercises before proceeding to an Intermediate class.

We then recommend completing 20-30 Intermediate classes before trying out the Advanced classes. Once you’ve achieved an Advanced level you can mix and match classes to suit.

Not sure if you’re ready to change springs? Chat to your trainer, and they’ll let you know if you’re ready to up a class level.

With a maximum of 14 clients per class, our classes can get booked out. We recommend adding yourself to the wait list for that class by booking yourself into the class as you would normally. Once you add yourself to a wait list, you’ll receive an email confirmation of your request. When a place becomes available in the class you will be notified via sms or email.

To ensure fairness for all clients and to allow those on the wait list an opportunity to attend a class, once notified, you will have two hours to reply using the link supplied in the SMS or email.

If you do not respond withing the two hour window, or decline your place, you will be removed from the wait list and the place will be offered to the next KXer on the wait list. If you confirm your place you’ll receive another notification confirming your place.

All of our classes include a warm up and a cool down. If you are more than 5 minutes late to your class then you may not be able to join, and your Trainer may turn you away from the class.

Unfortunately, no. We have a 9 hour cancellation policy for group classes and a 24 hour cancellation policy for private classes.

If you can’t make your class, please cancel or let us know at least 9 hours ahead (for group classes) or 24 hours ahead (for private classes) or you will lose that session.

We understand that life can sometimes get in the way, but we need to be fair to all clients.

Everyone is welcome. With small group classes (up to a maximum of 14) our Trainers can modify exercises to accommodate each individual’s ability, allowing you to work at their own pace.

Appropriate clothing is essential as you are going to work up a sweat.

We recommend gym tights, leggings or shorts and either a t-shirt or singlet top. Although most clients prefer to train bare foot, grip socks are most welcome.

Please arrive 10 minutes early to your first class. That way you’ll have time to familiarise yourself with the studio, meet your trainer and have a quick run down on the reformer.

If you’re late to your first class you might not be able to train.

You should always start with a Beginner class, even if you have done Pilates elsewhere or are quite fit.

KX Pilates uses a lot of small muscle groups, you’ll be surprised how challenging the class might be and may need to build up your strength.

You also need to familiarise yourself with the KX Pilates training method so that you can keep pace in our more advanced classes.

That depends on the individual.

Most of our new clients do just fine attending a Beginner class, with a maximum of 14 clients, the Trainer can modify exercises to suit differing abilities. Although still a workout, classes are broken down using simple exercises so all everyone can get the most out of their workout.

If you have chronic back pain, are coming back from an injury or are pregnant, a one-on-one session would be best to assess your situation.

We do however reserve the right for Owners and/or trainers to restrict clients to a particular class type for safety reasons if necessary.
