Frequently Asked Questions...
+ What is Pilates?
Pilates is a form of exercise, which traditionally focused on using specific exercises to improve your posture, breathing, flexibility and strength.
At bodyBEgood, we fuse traditional, 'old-school' Pilates, with expert physiotherapy knowledge and the latest in sports science, to enable each and every client to get the most out of their body.
Our studio is fitted with the most elite Pilates reformers on the market, the Balanced Body Allegro 2, along with a Trapeze Table, Combo Chair, and Ladder Barrel.
We provide both Clinical Rehabilitation, which is a form of rehabilitation exercise, and Reformer Classes, which is a group exercise class on the Pilates machines.
+ What are the benefits of Pilates?
Pilates can benefit every body. Our dynamic classes will target your:
- Peace of mind!
+ What type of classes do you offer?
At bodyBEgood, we currently have the following classes on offer:
- Clinical Rehabilitation1 classes
- Reformer Classes
- Pre & Postnatal Physio Classes
- GOLD classes for Over 50s
and soon we will be adding Oncology Rehab classes (coming mid 2019!)
+ How long are the sessions?
Our classes run for 45 minutes.
Our physiotherapy consultations and individual Clinical Rehab sessions are 30 minutes duration.
+ Will I lose weight with Pilates?
Pilates is all about getting you stronger, longer, and looking and feeling better. Whilst you might work up a sweat in our Fitness classes, it is not the best 'fat-burn' type of exercise available to you.
However... whilst the scales might not show a difference in your weight, many clients find that they feel better, move better, and often drop a dress size, once they start on their bodyBEgood journey!
+ What if I've never done Pilates before?
It doesn't matter! We welcome everyone, from first timers through to Pilates experts. Have a read of the next question to help you decide which class to book.
+ Which class should I book?
If you have a current or recent injury, or a specific goal/area of your body that you would like to address, we recommend you attend a Pre Assessment. This is a physiotherapy consultation, where you will chat about your injury, your goals and your general health, and the physio will look at your posture, flexibility, and muscle control. This gives you a great chance to chat with the physio about any concerns you may have. Following this consult, the physio will be able to direct you to either Clinical Rehab, or our other exercise classes.
If you are feeling fit, healthy, and ready for a challenge, you can book your place immediately in any of our Reformer classes.
+ What else do I need to know before I come?
If you are coming along to your first Reformer Pilates class, we ask that you arrive 10 minutes early. This will allow the teacher to give you a bit of info about how the machines work, and to introduce you to using your Pilates muscles.
+ How often should I do Pilates?
We find that most clients take around 5 sessions to become comfortable using the reformers, understanding the exercises, and feeling confident with Pilates.
From that point forwards, we recommend a minimum of twice weekly to get the most out of your sessions.

+ Can I use my private health insurance for classes at bodyBEgood?
Your ability to claim a health insurance rebate for your classes is dependant on your individual level of cover. If you wish to claim your classes, we strongly encourage you to discuss your ability to claim with your health insurance provider, prior to commencing classes. Any client wishing to claim classes must attend an individual Physio Assessment at bodyBEgood, where we formulate an plan for you, and decide on specific goals for your body, before you can claim any classes.
Our individual Clinical Rehab classes, use the HICAPS code 560.
Our Physio Exercise classes use the HICAPS code 561.
All classes are paid for prior to the class, and we will issue you with an itemised receipt for claiming AFTER the class is completed.
+ What do I need to wear/bring?
For Pilates, please wear clothes that you are comfortable to exercise in, that won’t restrict your movement. You don’t need to bring anything along, other than a good attitude and a willingness to improve your body.
+ How do I book?
