If I’m a beginner or haven’t worked out in a long time, what class should I start with?

You can start with whatever class best fits your schedule. Each instructor makes modifications and variations for all fitness levels, so each class includes the same amount of instruction and hands on assistance as the next. We’ll work with you as you listen to your body and work as hard as you can. Even if you’re doing 10% of an exercise, as long as it’s to 100% of your ability, you’ll receive 100% of the benefit and results.Clients are encouraged to take a minimum of 5 open-level classes before they enter an intermediate-level class. Clients are required to take a minimum of 5 intermediate-level classes before taking an advanced-level class.

What amenities does the studio offer?

Why are socks required in the body studio?

Socks are required for both sanitation purposes and added grip and traction on the mat so you can achieve the best results from our body and mind classes!

Do I need to bring my own cycling shoes?

Cycling shoes are required for our indoor cycling classes for safety and stability. Our bike pedals are compatible with SPD and Look clips. Bring your cycling shoes or you can rent them for $3. Shoes are also available to purchase in studio.

What is an Early Cancellation?

Reservations may be cancelled free of charge either online or by calling the studio at least 12 hours prior to the class start time.

What is a Late Cancellation?

A late cancellation occurs when canceling or switching classes outside of our 12-hour cancellation policy. If you cancel less than 12 hours before class start time, you will lose 1 single class or xpress class credit. If you are on Month Unlimited, you will be charged a Late Cancel Fee equal to the cost of 1 class ($24) or 1 xpress class ($16). This same policy applies for workshops.

We realize unforeseen circumstances do arise and are happy to provide clients with one complimentary Late Cancellation each month. This can only be provided by calling the studio directly.

Please arrive 15 minutes before class; those that arrive more than 10 minutes after class start time will not be allowed into class for safety reasons.

Why do I need to keep my credit card on file if I am on Unlimited Auto-Renew?

Can I attend class if I am pregnant or postpartum?

Consulting with your doctor before taking a DEFINE class is recommended. DEFINE Instructors are trained to provide modifications for pregnant and postpartum clients, so be sure to arrive early to class and let your Instructor know.

How many years of age do you have to be to participate in class?

Anyone under 18 years of age is welcome to attend class if accompanied by a guardian in class and the guardian signed the waiver. If the client is 16 or 17 years of age they can attend class without a guardian, however, the guardian must sign the waiver.

What is the DEFINE kids Program?

Space is limited to ensure the safety of all the children so please be sure to reserve your child’s spot in advance! If minors are on the premises while guardians are in class, a DEFINE kids session or package must be purchased.

body & mind

Why do we need socks?

Socks are worn not only for sanitation purposes, but also for added grip and traction on the floor and mat. Socks are available for purchase for $12.

How often can I take classes?

The DEFINE method is a sustainable approach to exercise. We balance your body with strengthening and stretching so you can take as many classes per week as you see fit. A good goal is 3-5 times a week. The focus on stretching each muscle we work keeps your body flexible and minimizes soreness. The DEFINE mind class is a great compliment to the DEFINE body class as it enhances the stretching and lengthening of the entire body.

Do I still need to do cardio in addition to DEFINE classes?

This depends on your personal goals. While the DEFINE body class is both strength and cardio based, you will not be “huffing and puffing” during the class. Since we spend a large portion of the class on the legs and gluteus, which are the biggest fat burners in your body, you will quickly see and feel those inches dropping even without cardio. If you enjoy a good cardio workout, we recommend supplimenting our body classes with our new revolution classes! (see revolution below for details)

Does this technique replace weight training?
The DEFINE method incorporates strength and resistance training for the entire body. If you are looking to build lean, long, and tone muscles, all DEFINE classes can help you replace the need for weights. Through the use of small hand weights as well as body weight, our classes strengthen every part of the body, largely focusing on the upper body, legs, the gluteus muscles, your abdominals, and the entire core. Our focus is on proper form while fatiguing the muscle group being worked, followed by rejuvenating stretches which helps tone and lengthen the muscles.
What results can I expect to see and when?
You can begin to see and feel results in as little as 10 classes. This varies depending on how often you attend class and what your lifestyle and nutrition are like. Our technique of concentrated muscle fatigue followed by focused stretching maximizes your efforts and helps the body’s system work together in a strong, powerful way. Our instructors are always happy to speak with you about your goals and help you to achieve them in a healthy, balanced manner.
Will any injuries or lack of flexibility prevent me from taking class?
Absolutely not. During your initial visit, we will ask for an evaluation of your body and any previous or current strains or injuries our team should be aware of. Any injuries or ailments will be communicated to the instructor, as well as noted on your profile for future reference. Each exercise can be modified to eliminate any strain or discomfort. With flexibility being a foundation principle of the class, we will work with you to ensure proper form and allow you to progress naturally.
Can I take DEFINE body and DEFINE mind classes if I am pregnant?
You may! However, it is recommended that you begin classes early in your pregnancy and you consult with your doctor before you begin any exercise program. Also, please tell your instructor if you are pregnant as we have several modifications that we do for each stage of pregnancy. As with all of our classes, we encourage each student to take it at their own pace. After the baby is born, we also offer a DEFINE baby class.

revolution

What is DEFINE revolution?

DEFINE’s spin on indoor cycling adapts the ultra-effectiveness of DEFINE body to the bike, combining principles of isometrics with cardio blasting high intensity fun. This 45-minute ride incorporates high-energy music with choreographed movements on a stationary bike for a full body workout.

Are shoes required for class?
Yes. Spin shoes with clips are required in the DEFINE revolution class. If you are interested in renting spin shoes, the rental fee is $3 per pair.
Which spin shoe clips are compatible with your pedals?
Our Schwinn bike pedals can be used with either SPD or Look clips.
Is water provided?
While we do not sell bottled water, we do provide an unlimited access to our alkaline water system! Alkaline water hydrates you faster, increases immunity and assists in your overall wellbeing. You are welcome to bring your own reusable bottle or purchase one of our stainless steel bpa-free DEFINE water bottles. Fill up as often as you like, and stay hydrated while limiting our carbon footprint!
How many calories are burned during a class?
Depending on your body weight and amount of exertion used, you can burn about 500-600 calories, on average, in a DEFINE revolution class.
Will revolution build my thighs?
The amount of cardio vascular movement in a DEFINE revolution class far outweighs the amount of muscle development that could take place. We do not spend enough time in big climbs to build and bulk.
What is the temperature in the room?
We keep the room temperature set to a comfortable 72 degrees.
