What class should I start with?

Just start trying them out, some will fit your personality more than others.  But here is a quick guide.

  • FOR ALL CLASSES – start essential or intro even if you have been practicing for a while this lets us assess your needs and lets you get familiar with Twisted Bodies and our style of teaching.

  • Pilates Mat – start essential, make sure to regularly mix this into your workout, it will help EVERYTHING, we promise!

  • Pilates Reformer – essential is the way to go, there is a lot to learn about the equipment and not every reformer is made the same or equally.

  • Yoga – test them out and try them all, we have a variety of instructors and styles, it’s very eclectic so you’ll find something different about each class.

  • Pole – start with Intro, even if you have been practicing awhile, it lets us get familiar with your skill set and learn who you are as a mover.

  • Aerial – start with intro, even if you have been practicing for a while.  Because names of movements can vary coast to coast, region to region and style of technique is vastly different, this is a great way to begin to learn the Twisted Bodies language of movement.

  • Total Barre – Just jump in, teachers will provide modifications as necessary.

  • POUND – it’s intense just go for it and enjoy the fun of being a hot mess, laugh and enjoy burning calories, make new friends, and get rid of your frustrations.

  • EBAS – everyone should experience this class at least once!  You’ll appreciate it at any level.

  • TRX – start essential our instructors will ramp up your workout as needed. 

Not Sure? – Just ask! We are happy to help direct you to the most appropriate class to meet your goals and expectations. 

Ready for more of a challenge?
Let the instructor know, they will do a quick assessment and let you know if intermediate or advanced classes are open for you OR what you need to work on to get there.  Remember it’s not a competition, it’s about what you need!

What are the differences in class levels and the prerequisites?
  • Each class description has prerequisites listed so you will know if you are ready for the next level!
  • Unsure just ask, we are happy to help.

What should I wear?
  • Form fitted workout clothing is best.  This lets us see your alignment and make corrections as necessary.  
  • For Aerial, please make sure to have tights or leggings, a cotton blend is best.
  • For Pole, you will want shorts and a tank or sports bra.  More skin allows for better contact and grip to the pole.
  • Just make sure it’s comfortable for you and you feel good about yourself in it, we are not having a glamour show so no need to dress up for us.
  • FOR ALL CLASSES! Dress in layers, especially for Pole and Aerial, we do a lot of floor warm-ups so socks, pants, long sleeves, are a necessity.  YES, EVEN IN THE DEATH OF TEXAS SUMMER HEAT!

When should I arrive?
Make sure to arrive in the lobby 5 – 15 minutes before your class start time.  WE DO NOT ALLOW LATE ENTRANCE TO CLASSES FOR ANY REASON. Entering late is unsafe for you, the class, and the instructor and extremely disruptive.

Do you have childcare?
  • We do not provide childcare.
  • Let this be an escape for you and others from the duties of guardianship.
  • We do not allow children to wait in the lobby or in studio rooms.

Can I get a Refund?
Once a payment has been processed, we do not issue refunds.  We are happy to credit your account for payment toward a different purchase.  Simply notify the front desk for assistance.

I have an emergency!
Call 940–514 –1170 or email twistedbodiesfd@gmail.com  – do this after you have gotten your emergency situation under control; your classes can always wait and in the event of an emergency we will work with you!

Lost and Found Items:
  • All items left in the studio are held in the lobby until the end of the week.  Friday of each week all items are donated or disposed of. Unfortunately, we do not have the room to keep items for extended periods of time.
  • Be sure to follow us on Instagram @twistedbodies and Facebook, we often post videos of lost and found items before removing them from the studio.

Cell Phones?
ALL PHONES must be turned off or placed on silent, this prevents any unnecessary disruptions and distractions in class.  Plus, there is nothing worse than getting hit with an annoying ringtone in the middle of a sweet savasana!

Pagers?
Do people still have these?  We thought this was a 1990’s thing!  If so, make them silent!

Photos and Video?
  • PLEASE refrain from taking any photos or video until the end of class.  
  • Be respectful of your classmates, they may not want to be on your social media, or they may not want a photo that day.  
  • DO NOT video or photograph any instructors while they are teaching.
  • Instructors have the right to request no phone, photos, videos, etc. at any time and may ask those who disregard to leave class.
  • We know you like to take pictures and we love seeing your progress when you tag Twisted Bodies in your social media posts, so be sure to share.
