Hard AF?!

  • Very difficult.

  • Every class is a different combo of reformer exercises.

  • No matter how many classes you take, it’s always challenging.

  • Learning curve for the reformer, but not hard to learn.

  • Low impact, but you’ll sweat.

  • Requires mental fortitude.

Vibe

  • Instructors are encouraging and talented. They keep you preoccupied while your muscles are burning.

  • Music is good, but not the focus.

Classified Information

  • A reformer has springs, some red some yellow. Those springs determine how heavy the resistance is on your reformer.

  • Take the Intro class to get familiar with the machine.

  • SLT names the positions. For instance, sitting on the edge of the machine with your legs under a strap, you’ll move over the edge of the machine working your oblique muscles- that’s called “Mermaid”.

  • Change the springs fast so you maximize your time doing the exercises OR change your springs slow to minimize your time doing exercises ;)

  • You will see real results in your body after taking SLT regularly.
