1. Why Ten?
We're one of London's leading Boutique Fitness providers, providing expertly taught small group classes in a friendly, welcoming environment.
We're best known for our Dynamic Reformer Pilates classes, but we also offer Physiotherapy, Sports Massage, along with HiiT, Barre, TRX, Yoga and Stretch classes, Personal Training and exercise rehabilitation.
Ten's trainers are amongst the best in London (we're 3-time winners of the Tatler Gym Awards). Our focus on posture, form and control makes our workouts as safe and sustainable as they are effective and time-efficient.
We have Studios throughout London – in Fitzrovia, Mayfair, St James's, Notting Hill, Little Venice, Hatton Garden, Chiswick, Tottenham Court Road and the City.
2. What's Dynamic Reformer Pilates?
Think of it as Pilates taken to the next level. So there's the same focus on form, control and on a strong and aligned core. And the same benefits for posture, flexibility, mobility and balance.
But Dynamic Pilates goes a step further – it's an intense and dynamic full-body workout that combines classic Pilates moves with more functional exercises to increase the intensity of the overall movement and deliver greater conditioning and muscle toning benefits.
3. Fitness Classes – The Ten Way
Everything we do, we do our way. Using the knowledge and expertise we've gained from 10 years as one of London's leading Pilates Providers, our workouts are as safe and sustainable as they are immersive, intense, effective and time-efficient.
In all our fitness classes, including HiiT, Cardio, TRX, Yoga and Barre, we place the great emphasis on quality of movement, technique, form and control, rather than just on effort and fatigue. And we offer the same small class sizes, expert instruction, individual attention and hands-on correction.
4. Introductory Offers – Pilates & Fitness Classes
The perfect option if:
– You're completely new to Reformer Pilates or to Ten.
– You're currently training elsewhere and want to see how we're different before you swap.
6. Physio & Massage Therapy
Ten is unusual - if not unique - in London in having a dedicated team of expert in-house Physiotherapists and Massage therapists working alongside our class Instructors and Personal trainers.
By focusing on addressing the cause of injury or dysfunction rather than simply easing the symptoms, their goal is to help you move better. Whether that’s to do with injury treatment and rehabilitation, pain reduction, muscle tightness, joint mobility, postural alignment or performance enhancement, we’re here to help you return to natural, effective, functional movement and a healthy, happy, pain-free life.
We are registered with all major Private Health Insurers.
7. Circle of Care
Our approach to client wellbeing is significantly different to anything else you’ll find in the fitness and wellbeing sector – in fact we believe it’s unique in the UK. We call it our Circle of Care. It’s a collaborative and integrated partnership between our Trainers and in-house Therapists.
In contrast to the way the fitness industry typically operates, our Trainers and Physios work together to manage every stage of a client’s physical wellbeing – including exercise, prehab, injury management, treatment and rehab – enabling us to providing you with a seamless progression from one stage to another.
8. Ten’s Move Better Approach
In the fitness industry, there’s still way too much focus on the intensity and challenge of workouts rather than the quality of the movement within them.
We’re different. Our MoveBetter approach is all about making our classes and workouts as safe and sustainable as possible – while still being hugely absorbing, effective and time efficient.
Move Better is all about helping you:
– move with more strength and power
– move more freely, without impingement or pain
– move with better technique – with greater control and alignment to minimise injury
– move more efficiently, so you can maximise the benefits of exercise.
9. Before your first Class
We ask you to arrive 15 minutes early for you first class. That’s so you we can make you welcome and show you where everything is, and we can talk about any niggles or injuries you may have.
You’ll need to complete our exercise readiness form before attending your first class. It’s for your safety, and makes us aware of any injuries or health issues you may have so we can adapt your workout accordingly. You can do this in studio, or online. Do it now, and you’ll save time when you get to the Studio.
Wear clothing that will allow you to sweat and move freely.
If you’ve come for a Dynamic Reformer Pilates or a Reformer Pilates based class, you’ll need gripsocks (if you don’t have any, don’t worry - they’re available at Reception).
You’ll need trainers for HiiT, TRX and Personal Training sessions.
If you’ve come for a mat based / bodyweight class, or Barre we recommend bare feet or grip socks, except for our Yoga classes where you will be expected to practice with bare feet.
We provide water and towels.
