What Is Reformed Pilates?

 

Reformed Pilates uses reformers, which are mobile carriages held by tension springs and can be increased or decreased depending upon the desired intensity.  Reformed Pilates fuses the classical elements of Pilates including balance, flexibility and core strength with interval training to provide clients of all ability levels with a full body workout.

I really love Pilates and enjoy the classes at Reformed. I like the fact that all the instructors are helpful and suggest modifications that work for me.

My first Pilates class at Reformed was just a little over 2 years ago. Courtney was the instructor and I was instantly hooked! I quickly developed muscle definition I’ve never seen from any other workout while feeling more flexible and energetic than ever before. The instructors are all amazing and make it a point even during group classes to help each client perfect their practice. Reformed has got the total package for me - spin and Pilates complement each other so well and alternating them is my perfect workout routine. I recently joined the Reformed 500 Club and have a goal to join the Reformed 1000 Club in 2020!

I was intimidated by the reformer for years before I finally decided to try Reformed Pilates. I was afraid I'd look "foolish," but since my first class, I have been coming 6 days a week! I love the results I’ve seen without the stress on my body.

Dear Reformed Family and our fellow Arizonans,

We hope this finds you doing well and staying safe. As native Phoenicians and local business owners, we want what is best for what we consider the greatest state in the nation, Arizona. As the tides continue to change around us, we want to keep you all up to date regarding where we currently stand. In order to do so, we want to first give you some context as to our experience and thought process.


A Decade in the Making

Without a doubt the past four months have been the toughest period in our ten years of entrepreneurship. Managing the effects of COVID-19 on our business is something that, even with a decade of operational experience, has challenged our fortitude and resilience in ways that we could not have anticipated. With that said, our hearts vacillate between tremendous pain of potentially losing what we have built, and bursting with enormous pride watching our clients, staff and the community as a whole rise to the occasion.

By now, many of you know our story, but for those of you who do not, we want to share a little bit more. Ten years ago, we both worked in finance in Los Angeles. We worked too much and we lived too little. We chose to move back to our home state in 2010, with a mission to do something more with our lives, to be happier and healthier, and to have a bigger impact on the people around us.

After moving in together and combining our resources, we started Reformed Pilates (Reformed) seven years ago. We didn’t have a playbook or the background to start a business. Quite the opposite in fact; working in finance provided zero experience in the “how” to run Reformed. But what we did have in spades was the “why.” We built Reformed with the mission to provide people with essential mental and physical well-being, something that is needed now more than ever.

This mission and our amazing clients, staff and community that have joined us along the way have pushed Reformed from a dream into a business, and from one location into seven.

 

Governor Ducey’s June 29th Executive Order:

To begin, we want to say that we empathize with the difficult position our Governor and our Government, state and federal, are in. We are all collectively trying to balance protecting public health along with massive economic ramifications. We believe Governor Ducey issued the Executive Order in good faith to try to slow the spread of COVID-19.

That being said, we don’t believe that our studios, along with many other smaller boutique operations, should be a part of the broader category of “gym, fitness club or center” for the following reasons:

1. We are a “by appointment” Pilates studio

2. We are able to safely limit our time slots to no more than 10 clients

3. We have removed equipment to ensure proper social distancing of 6 feet or more

4. Since the day of our reopening on May 18th, we have worked to maintain a standard of excellence and best practices in accordance with CDC guidelines: Requiring all staff to wear facial coverings; Requiring clients to wipe down the equipment before and after use; Prohibiting any type of equipment sharing; Adding additional professional cleanings

We have also immediately required our clients to adhere to changes in city requirements as they have been implemented, including facial coverings. We even provided facial coverings in studio for clients as needed.

Ultimately, we think it is unproductive to split hairs over whether or not we are a “gym, fitness club or center.” Where we want to focus the conversation, is on the fact that we feel confident in Reformed’s ability to operate as safely as possible, given our “new normal.”

With this in mind, as well as the fact that we are not under a state-wide stay at home order and most other businesses in Arizona are open, we ask Governor Ducey to revisit the order and provide “gyms, fitness clubs or centers” guidelines under which they can safely operate.

Without additional guidelines, the alternative, to keep businesses closed, will present a situation that cannot be sustained long-term.

 

Compassion & Community

In today’s world, the space between us feels farther and farther apart. We talk constantly about how polarized and political everything has become. As a community and as a nation, we can no longer see the forest through the trees. We need to check in on our neighbors, take care of those who are vulnerable, and have compassion for those who have been and will continue to be affected.

 

Our Mission Moving Forward

Our hope and our mission in the coming days and weeks is to focus on uniting our community. To our staff, including all corporate positions and instructors, we know that many of you count on us for your income, and we count on you to be the heart and soul of Reformed.

If Governor Ducey requires us to shut down for the month of July, we are committed to paying our staff in full.

If we could say it more, we would, THANK YOU Reformed Family and all Arizonans. Thank you for being patient and supportive as all of us continue to navigate an unprecedented time. Words truly cannot express the love that we have for each of you.

 

With Love and Gratitude,

Laura & Pete, Co-Owners
