You can have a trial session with us once. Here you can find all the information about our classes. If you have any questions, feel free to email us at hello@the-bodyworkers.de or book your trial session either directly through the class schedule or here:

Sure thing, with a class pass card or a subscription, you're welcome to attend two classes back-to-back with us.

For Urban Sports Club or Gympass members, participation is unfortunately limited to one class per day. If you'd still like to attend a double session, you can purchase a single drop-in ticket or a class pass card for this purpose. Our class pass card is valid for 3 years.

The class schedule on the website is always up-to-date. If a class is cancelled, it will be marked as such on the website. Additionally, you will receive an email notifying you of the class cancellation. However, this occurs very rarely.

You can independently cancel booked classes through your account or via the partner apps. If you cancel within the cancellation deadlines, there are no costs incurred, and the credit / check-in will be refunded to you. If you exceed the cancellation deadline, the credit / check-in will be deducted from your quota.

Important information for all USC members:
If you do NOT CANCEL and DO NOT ATTEND, USC will charge you a penalty fee. We have no influence on this. Therefore, please make sure to cancel if you cannot attend.

Please note the following cancellation deadlines:

  • Studio and outdoor classes: 12 hours
  • Livestreams: 3 hours

If a class is already fully booked, you can still book a spot and join the waiting list. You will be notified by email if you move up from the waiting list and get a spot. The likelihood of automatically moving up is nearly 100% based on experience.

You might even move up at the last minute. Therefore, if it becomes too tight for you to attend, you should cancel your waiting list spot. Otherwise, in the event of moving up and not attending, you will lose your credit. If you do not move up, your credit will of course be refunded and not consumed.

About the partner programs

Urban Sports Club (USC) is a platform where you can sign up directly to access a wide range of sports facilities. You can then train in many sports studios in your city and numerous other cities across Europe. The Bodyworkers is one of the partner studios of Urban Sports Club. With the M membership of USC, you can check in at our studio 4 times per month, with the L and XL memberships 8 times per month in the studio, and with all memberships additionally 8 times per month in livestreams. You pay the membership fee directly to USC.

Important for studio classes: If you cannot attend, please cancel your studio spot through the USC app. The cancellation deadline is 12 hours. You can also cancel at shorter notice, however, your check-in will then be deducted from your quota, and you will be charged a small penalty fee which USC automatically collects. We strongly recommend you to do so, as the penalty fee for a "no-show" is significantly higher.

Unfortunately, we do not have access to USC bookings, meaning we cannot cancel or reschedule for you, nor do we have any influence over the terms and conditions you have agreed upon with USC. For further details, please contact USC directly.

Gympass is exclusively a corporate offering. For you to use Gympass, your employer must enter into a contract with Gympass. Your company then subsidizes a portion of the membership fee to Gympass on your behalf. This allows you to benefit from exceptionally low prices (depending on how much your company contributes) and access a wide range of studios and classes. You pay the membership fee directly to Gympass.

With Gympass, you can only participate in our livestreams. You can easily book our livestreams directly through the Gympass app.

With EGYM WELLLPASS you can only participate in our livestream.

To use the free booking option via Wellpass, please create an account >here< and book the check-in option for EGYM WELLPASS members. There is a one-off registration fee of €19, all further bookings are free of charge. The subscription is then stored in your account and you can book up to 8 livestreams with us per month. Our livestreams are really good, it's worth it!

Of course, please only use this free booking option if your EGYM WELLPASS membership is active. If you book classes beyond this using this option, the regular class fee will be automatically debited from the payment method on file.

If you are inactive for more than 3 months, the subscription will be automatically deactivated and the registration fee would then be charged again.

If you'd like to attend multiple classes or, for example, double sessions with us, you can purchase a single drop-in ticket or a class pass card. Our class pass card is valid for 3 years.

About the classes

If you're feeling out of shape after a long break, these classes are particularly suitable for beginners to build strength and coordination: physyolates®, Pilates, and Ballet Barre. Also Mama Fitness is a good starting point even for non-pregnant participants.
Mastered these classes well? Then your next level could be BBP / Core Burn XPRESS, HIIT meets Yoga, Piloxing, and Functional HIIT Circle.

If you're looking to improve your mobility, we recommend Hatha / Vinyasa Yoga, Back & Fascia Release, and Stretch & Tone.

Classes like Outdoor HIIT & Run, DEEPWORK, Cardio Pilates, Iron Pump, and HIIT Warrior Workout require a high level of fitness. Therefore, we don't recommend these classes as a re-entry after a long break.

We've provided detailed descriptions of all our classes and categorized them into STRENGTH & ENDURANCE, STRETCH & MOBILITY, DANCE & COORDINATION, RELAX & RECHARGE so you can easily find what you're looking for.

If you're still unsure, feel free to email us at hello@the-bodyworkers.de to discuss your individual situation and find the most suitable classes for your fitness level and goals.

If you were active before pregnancy, you can continue to be active during pregnancy. We recommend engaging in light exercise only during the first 12 weeks, after which you can gradually increase your activity level.

For pregnant women, we have developed a special class that takes into account the needs of pregnancy. In Mama Fitness, we avoid jumps for example or excessive abdominal muscle training. It's still a fitness class, so you'll definitely break a sweat and train your muscles. However, since the class is 100 % tailored to pregnancy, you'll find it fully accommodating unlike any other class.

As long as you feel comfortable, you can also attend some other classes that you used to attend before. However, not all of our classes are suitable for pregnant women. Therefore, be sure to speak with your trainer beforehand and ask for alternatives for jumping and abdominal exercises. If in doubt, feel free to email us at hello@the-bodyworkers.de in advance so we can discuss your individual situation.

As a precaution, always consult with your doctor to determine which fitness program is suitable for you personally during and after pregnancy.

We strongly recommend that you first attend a post-natal recovery course, where the pelvic floor is specifically strengthened and rectus diastasis is addressed. This is very important so that you can fully engage in physical activities in the long term. You can start a postnatal recovery course from the 8th week (for vaginal birth) or from the 12th week (for cesarean section) after giving birth.

Our Mama Fitness class is ideal for getting you back in shape for returning to your usual fitness routine after completing your first post-natal recovery course. Although the first post-natal recovery course lays the groundwork for a strong body, fitness may not be fully restored, or the pelvic floor may still be somewhat unstable. Since Mama Fitness avoids jumps and excessive abdominal muscle training, it's a wonderful option for new moms to regain fitness.

In addition to Mama Fitness, our pysyolates® class is also a good option for you after your first post-natal recovery.
As a precaution, always consult with your doctor to determine which fitness program is suitable for you personally after pregnancy.

Only your doctor can answer that question. Generally, you need to be 100 % fit and healthy again if you want to participate in power workouts.

We also offer classes that are recommended during the healing process to rebuild strength and flexibility, such as physyolates®, Back & Fascia Release, or Stretch & Tone - but this should also be discussed with a doctor beforehand, especially after serious injuries and surgeries.
If you have the green light from your doctor, feel free to email us at hello@the-bodyworkers.de so we can discuss your individual situation and possibly recommend classes.

Injuries and illnesses must be communicated to the trainer in advance. We try our best to accommodate your needs and provide alternative exercises, but this is not always possible in group classes. Therefore, you should know your body well enough to take a break if it becomes too much.
Start slowly, gradually reintroduce your body to movement and stress after a long break, and increase gradually.

You can also receive individualized care with us. We offer personal training for rehabilitation after an injury and have specially educated trainers for this. Feel free to contact us!

For weight loss, many of our classes with a high cardio component are suitable. These include:

medium / rather intensive:

very intensive:

To specifically build muscle, we recommend workouts that focus heavily on strength training. These include:

Low / Medium intensive:

rather / very intensive:

In our studio, we offer many classes where you can work on your flexibility and mobility:

  • In Stretch & Tone and our Hatha and Vinyasa Yoga classes, we specifically target your flexibility. Through dynamic flows, we stretch deep into the fibers of the body.
  • In HIIT meets Yoga, we combine endurance and flexibility - a fusion of High-Intensity Training (HIIT) and yoga flows.
  • A gentle method to become more flexible and supple is our Back & Fascia Release class.
  • Ballet Barre combines mobility with strength. In this class, your endurance and coordination also come into play.
  • If you are looking to target your flexibility and coordination at the same time, DAYO is the perfect class for you!

YES! Men are warmly welcome in all our classes.

We also have a separate changing room for men in our studio.
The classes are equally effective for men and women, whether you want to build strength, improve your endurance, or increase flexibility. We appreciate having mixed groups.

No, you can attend all our classes without prior experience.
Our groups are very mixed - from beginners to absolute fitness junkies. There are classes that are more or less intense. You can find which class suits your fitness level and goals in the respective workout descriptions.

In general, all our instructors are trained to provide suitable training even for beginners. They explain all exercises precisely and correct your execution if necessary. However, you should be free from injuries; if not, please contact us in advance!

We are happy to advise you to find the right class for you! Feel free to email us at hello@the-bodyworkers.de and tell us a bit about yourself. We will help you improve gradually and ensure that your posture and execution are perfect!

Participation in our classes is excluded if you:

  • Have an acute injury or illness.
  • Have just been vaccinated or donated blood. We recommend taking a break for 1-2 days before resuming training.
  • Are drunk or under the influence of strong medications (... it's probably obvious, but we'll mention it here anyway).
  • Feel unwell or have cold symptoms - not only for your own sake but also for the sake of your fellow participants ♥

You'll need comfortable sportswear, a towel, and something to drink (no glass bottles!).
For a few classes, you'll also need sports shoes, which is always indicated in the class descriptions (e.g. for Shake & Tone, Iron Pump, Dance Workout, Piloxing, and of course our outdoor classes).

Please note that for hygiene reasons, the studio may only be entered with clean indoor sports shoes. Most of our classes are done barefoot or with non-slip socks.

No - we provide mats for all participants in our studio. These are of premium quality and are disinfected after each session. However, you are welcome to bring your own mat if you prefer.

On our premium mats, training is exclusively done barefoot!
If you prefer to train with clean indoor sports shoes in one of our classes that are held barefoot, you will need your own mat! You can find out which of our classes are held barefoot in the individual class descriptions.
