What is WundaBar Pilates?
Simply put, it’s Pilates, Reinvented.

WundaBar Pilates is the only studio featuring the WundaFormer – the latest, the greatest, the ONLY Pilates equipment you need to achieve results faster than anything you’ve ever tried! WundaBar delivers individual attention and results beyond compare. Want to condition your body and strengthen your core for whatever comes your way? WundaBar is THE place for you! Get your WundaBody in our proprietary class formats that you won’t find anywhere else.
How Is WundaBar Pilates Different From Traditional Pilates Or Yoga?
WundaBar Pilates not only utilizes our exclusive WundaFormer machine in every class (not available anywhere but a WundaBar studio!) – but the workout itself is FUN, high-energy and the most efficient use of your exercise minute! When you work out – the body responds more to intensity than it does to the amount of time spent in a workout. A more intense workout burns more calories per minute, and will result in a much stronger post-exercise reaction. Traditional Pilates and yoga are taught at a much slower pace, and not cardio driven to promote fat burning like WundaBar does!
Achieve your strong, sculpted, sleek physique without heavy impact on your joints while strengthening your core and cranking up your heart rate! Our cardio-conditioning and powerful movement classes are INTENSE and EFFICIENT minutes spent to build your best behind, lithe legs and amazing arms and abs!
Our small group classes make it possible to enjoy all the benefits of traditional, machine-based Pilates at a fraction of the traditional Pilates price! Factor in the camaraderie and accountability of group exercise, and it’s a priceless combination.
This is NOT your mama’s Pilates.
Will WundaBar Pilates Help Me Lose Weight?
In a word, YES! As noted above, a more intense workout (Intensity Rules at WundaBar!) burns more calories per minute, and will result in a much stronger post-exercise reaction. We’ve seen this ring true with the results for thousands of our clients, now it’s your turn to make the most efficient use of your exercise minute!!

I Have Never Done Pilates. May I Join Any Class Or Should I Do Private Sessions First?
WundaBar Pilates is like nothing you’ve ever tried before – trust us on this one!
We strongly recommend that all clients who are new to the studio first attend a WundaBar Toolbox Class, or take a private session with one of our talented team members. Prior to taking your first class you'll get your formal WundaFormer tour.
Pops always says, "Use the right tool for every job!!" This Toolbox group class is for beginners and seasoned clients alike! Beginners learn to achieve proper form and modify the workout to suit their experience level and/or any minor injuries. Seasoned clients learn how to further challenge themselves in order to take their WundaBody to the next level.
Your readiness also depends on your fitness level. 99% of our new students do just fine in the classes. The workout is intense, but the routine is kept simple to make sure everyone is using good form. However, if you have chronic back pain, painful joints or a severe medical condition, it is recommended that you take a private session first to assess your fitness level.
How Do I Buy WundaBar Pilates classes or a WundaBar Pilates Gift Certificate?
There are two great ways to enjoy WundaBar Pilates classes:
- Auto-Pay Enrollment (No long-term commitment required. It’s for your convenience!)
- Packages of classes
Please click here for a full menu of our pricing options.
What Should I Bring To Class?
- Please arrive 10 minutes early to your first class so you can complete a waiver and get a brief tour of our exclusive WundaFormer machine.
- Wear comfortable workout clothes.
- You'll need bare feet, a small hand towel and water.
- No cell phones during classes.
- We think you smell good too, but please no strong perfumes as some students are allergic.
How Often Should I Practice WundaBar Pilates?
Depending on your health and fitness goals, we recommend 3-5 classes per week – that’s about 4 hours per week for results you didn’t know were possible. We guarantee it.4
4 If you attend 4 classes per week for one month and don’t achieve increased cardio capacity, strength and muscle tone, we’ll give you your second month absolutely free!
I Am Pregnant. May I Attend WundaBar Pilates Group Classes?
Congratulations, that is wonderful news!! Several of our WundaBar Pilates studio schedules include Pregnancy & Pelvic Floor Conditioning classes. Please click here for more information.
We do not allow pregnant women to take the regular WundaBar Pilates group classes. We only want what is best and safest for mother and child, and with all of the intense work, ‘unique’ positions we hold, and balancing that goes on in the studio we don’t recommend our regular group class formats for pregnant women at any time.
What If I Can't Come To Class And I Have Already Been Confirmed? Is There A Late Fee?
You must cancel Online at least 12-hours in advance of the class you cannot attend to avoid any penalty. When you Late Cancel (i.e. canceling online less than 12-hours in advance of the class you cannot attend) one class credit is deducted from your Series or Package, no additional fee applies; when you No Show (i.e. failing to show up for any reserved class and failing to cancel Online), a $25 No Show Fee will apply, but you will retain the class credit for use during your current Series or Package.
The late cancel policy is in place for two key reasons:
- It serves as a sincere motivator to attend the classes you reserve and get your outstanding results.
- It also serves as a Good Neighbor policy of sorts -- because there are a limited number of spots in each class, and the classes are very popular, we want to make sure that as many clients as possible are able to take the classes they want. When clients cancel with less than 12-hours notice or fail to show up, they have prevented other clients from taking that particular spot in class.
How Do I Cancel A Class Online?
Please ALWAYS cancel your classes online as soon as you know you cannot attend. Log in to your profile; go to MY INFO > MY SCHEDULE, and then click on the CANCEL button to the right of the class in question. With 12+ hours notice, there will be no class credit lost or fee applied.
Are There Any Exceptions To The Late Cancel Policy?
May I Bring My Child/Children To Class If They Sit Quietly While I Work Out?
Honestly, we do love to meet your adorable little ones, but due to safety and insurance concerns we cannot allow children to stay in the studio while class is in session. It is not safe to have little hands near the machines or to have other clients distracted while they are in poses that require concentration and balance.
