What To Expect From A Nobu Pilates Session
Nobu Pilates offers 50 minute reformer Pilates classes in three formats: Precision, a complete body workout; Pure, offering a more traditional approach to the original method; and Prescribed, with more one-on-one attention.
Each class is limited to just 10 people to allow for a more personalized experience.
The Reception Service
Our pre-visit call to the branch was excellent, with the staff clearly and explaining everything we needed to know to have a great first session.
The reception staff answered all our questions competently, but more warmth and enthusiasm would have helped improve the interaction. The staff were comfortable discussing the packages and training options.
The Class Experience
Nobu Pilates received The Fit Guide 4-Star Class Experience Award, making it one of London’s stand-out offerings.
Our instructor was very attentive to the small and intimate class. She was informative about form, posture and where in the body the stretch should be felt and clearly had a deep understanding of Pilates. More personal interactions would have helped deepen the coach to client connection.
The Equipment And Studio
The equipment in the studio was clean and of excellent quality. The coach made sure we had everything we needed at the different stages of the workout. The look and feel of the studio was highly impressive, and was at a comfortable temperature.
The Facilities And Public Areas
Workout and shower towels were provided free of charge. Lockers were provided with number locks. Free water refill stations were available.
The space overall had a very nice look and feel to it. This was extended to the changing rooms, but they were a little tight on space. Everything was clean and in good condition.
Digital And Technology
The booking experience was hassle free, although more information provided by email during the booking process would have helped make it a smoother experience. Also, the website was designed mostly for the hotel element of the Nobu business, which made it somewhat difficult to find information regarding the Pilates concept.
