Contraindications

If you have an injury, illness, medical condition, or are pregnant or just had a baby, some of our exercises might not be right for you. Since many conditions are invisible even to our teachers’ trained eyes, please let each teacher know about any injuries or illnesses prior to the start of class.

Fuse Pilates group classes are not appropriate for several medical conditions without significant modifications. Fuse private sessions are a great way to experience the Fuse method in a situation that is safe for your medical condition.

Contraindications for Fuse group classes include:

  • Spinal conditions such as herniated or prolapsed discs, spinal stenosis, spondylosis, etc.
  • Osteoporosis
  • Hip or knee replacement
  • Pregnancy or recent childbirth (check out our class descriptions for Push Prep and appropriate pre- and postnatal group classes)

On top of medical conditions and injuries, we believe strongly that it is your responsibility as a student to stop doing an exercise if it feels wrong for your body in any way.  Feel the burn pain is fine. Anything else is not. Please ask your teacher for a modified exercise (or a different one) if your body tells you it needs it.
