START STRONG WITH ANSWERS TO EVERY BURNING QUESTION  

THE WORKOUT


What is a FORM50 like?

Form50 is LIIT. Let’s break down LIIT, shall we? It stands for Low-Impact Interval Training. So low impact = no jumping, bouncing or otherwise destroying your joints. It’s easy on your back, hips and knees. But don’t be fooled, low impact does not = low intensity. In fact, it’s insanely intense.LIIT uses suuuper slow and controlled, functional movements on the megaformer that work your muscles to the point of exhaustion. That’s where the famous “shake” comes in. You’ll know it when you feel it. It’s all about time under tension to become stronger than you’ve ever been.That intensity is a real game changer. And the best part is, you never plateau because the workouts get harder, not easier, all while being kind to your joints. That’s exactly why LIIT is the sh*t.


Is this like pilates?

Form50 is NOT Pilates. Form50 and Pilates have a few things in common, both are low impact, and work on a machine. They are both proven ways to improve your core strength, flexibility, balance, and muscle tone.However, Form50 simply provides better results when it comes to fat loss, cardiovascular endurance, and strength. While there are many advantages to Form50, that doesn’t mean Pilates is completely obsolete. The intensity of Form50 doesn’t suit everyone and those who are older or just want a light workout may be better off with the restorative nature of Pilates.


Is there a beginner class? 

Yes! The class is called FORM Your Foundation. Your coach breaks everything down step by step, the Megaformer and all the moves, so you can get the feel and flow of killer form. Keep in mind that breaks are OK! Just take ‘em when you need ‘em (everybody does). Shake it out and get back at it. No judgment. 


FORM YOUR FOUNDATION IS SUGGESTED FOR ALL NEWBIES. 

BUT, HOW DO YOU KNOW IT’S TIME TO GO ON TO TOTAL BODY? 


1. You and the Mega totally get each other.

2. You hear names and cues for Mega moves, and you’re more like ‘got it,’ than ‘da fuq?’ 

3. Your transitions are smooth like buttah. 


Are the classes all levels?

All classes at Form50 are challenging no matter your fitness level or how many times you have taken class at our studio. That being said, we welcome all levels to come and try out a class. At Form50 is all about your own personal fitness journey, essentially it is you vs you. We have a “do what you can” philosophy, but don’t give up. Our coaches will offer modifications and adjustments as needed. We do have strongly encourage for all newbies to take Form Your Foundation, this beginner class will still be challenging and leave your muscles burnin’ and sweat drippin’, however we will focus exercises primarily off the front of the machine, and transitions will move at a slower pace, allowing less room for confusion.


Am I ready for a class at FORM50?

As long as you come with an open mind and good vibes, you are more than ready. Class is designed for all fitness levels, and strengths. Our coaches are all in, and hands and are trained to work with all fitness levels in a small group setting.

Do I need to bring anything?

Your safety and comfort are our top priority. For this reason, we require members to wear socks with a textured grip to class. You can BYOP (bring your own pair) or purchase them directly from the studio. 


Where do I put my stuff?

There are cubbies in the studio for your personal belongings.


Do you have showers?

No, we do not. We do have lots of complimentary goodies in our restroom to use to freshen up after class.

Do I have to buy a package?

How does the waitlist work?

Form50 members are permitted to join one class waitlist per day. Should a spot become available to you, Mindbody will send you an email letting you know you are confirmed. We don’t mind if you change your mind, we just ask that you sign into your account to cancel before class starts. If it is within 12 hours of the scheduled class time, please call us at 347-354-FORM or email us at hello@form50fitness. com. The earlier the better, so we can get another client in from the waitlist.



BEFORE CLASS


When should I arrive?

We ask that members arrive no later than 5 minutes prior to their scheduled class. For new members, we ask for you to arrive 10 minutes before class so we can show you around and help you get comfortable with the Megaformer. 


* Accountability Alert: Members who are not signed in by the start of class may lose their spot to a member on the waitlist.  


What should I bring to class?

It’s simple: all you need is an open-minded attitude with the willingness to try something new. Even if you’re uber-fit, this workout will be tough--that's the point. 


A few more pro tips: 

● Make sure you drink enough water and eat a healthy snack before class. 

● Wear workout clothes. Form-fitting gear highlights your, well, form. 

● Grippy socks are required for your safety (no sneakers in class). If you don't bring a pair of grippy socks, you’ll need to purchase a pair at the studio. 

● Bring a water bottle. We’ve got a cooler for free refills, and we also sell water at the studio. 

● We provide towels, expect to get sweaty! 


Do I have to buy a package?

No. You can buy a single class if you’re terrified of commitment. We offer a first time rate, where you purchase one class and the second one is on us.
