FAQs

Important questions and answers:

In our FAQ section, we have summarised the most frequently asked questions. If you still have any specific questions, then just contact us. We’d be happy to help.

1. What do I have to bear in mind before starting my first class?

To participate in our classes, you must book your place in advance. We recommend that you arrive 10 minutes before start of the class so that we can clarify any issues prior to starting. Other than that, you just have to have want to be here and be excited about your CaliforniaPilates workout.

 

2. How many classes should I attend per week?

In general, you are free to exercise as often as you like so long as it is enjoyable. Nevertheless, periods of rest for your body are definitely beneficial and training 2-3 times a week could already show very good results and significantly increase your basic fitness.

 

3. How do I book my class?

It is easiest to book your class in advance using our online booking portal Mindbody: Insert link https://clients.mindbodyonline.com/classic/ws?studioid=215315&stype=-105&sView=week . Here you can find our current class schedule and check for availability. Now you just have to create your personal profile and off you go! Naturally, you can also book your class at our studio. By the way, Mindbody is also an app “Mindbody Connect”, which you can use to sign up for classes when you’re on the go. You can download our California Pilates app from the App Store, or buy it when you attend your first class and pay by invoice.

 

4. How does the waiting list work?

If the class you want is already fully booked, you can add your name to our waiting list. Once a place becomes free, you will be automatically moved up the waiting list until a place can be assigned to you and then you will receive a confirmation by e-mail. If nobody leaves the class you want, we will naturally not debit your account for these sessions.

 

5. Can I cancel a class that I have already booked?

Classes that have already been booked can be cancelled up to 24 hours in advance. Thereafter, the full amount is due meaning that sessions are also deducted from your account for no-shows. Please remember to cancel if you know that you will not be able to make it. This enables us to work together in order to ensure that as many members as possible can attend the classes they want and not leave free places unoccupied unnecessarily.

 

6. What should I bring or not bring to the class?

You need to wear some kind of sports gear you can comfortably work out in, but no trainers. You must wear non-slip socks during the class. These can be purchased directly from us at the studio. We also recommend that you bring some water and a towel. Please remove all jewellery, as this could get caught in the equipment.

 

7. How do I get to the studio and where can I park?

The studio is on Feldstrasse in Zug. Parking is available directly outside at Feldpark 17. Zug train station is a 9-minute walk away. There is also a bus stop nearby.

 

8. Can I attend classes even if I am feeling under the weather?

At CaliforniaPilates, we take your health very seriously and generally recommend that you only attend classes when you don’t have any illnesses. Acute or chronic pain and health problems should be discussed in advance with a doctor and you must inform our instructors before you start your session. We can then make the necessary modifications to your exercise routine so that you get the right kind of workout for you.

Whether you continue your workouts during pregnancy is entirely up to you. However, we not recommend that you start these exercises whilst you are pregnant if you have never done them before. Under no circumstances should you do the workouts if you have a fever!
