You can do a trial session with us once a time. Here you can find all information about our courses. If you have any questions, please send us an email to hello@the-bodyworkers.de or book your trial training directly via the class schedule or here:

Sure, with a points card or a flatrate you can visit our place for two hours in a row. As an UrbanSportsClub or Gympass member, participation is unfortunately limited to one course per day. If you still want to do a double lesson, you can buy a points card. Our points card is valid forever.

We don't have classic memberships, just monthly flatrates, which end automatically. We think subscriptions are stupid and old-fashioned, but still want to offer you the opportunity to train with us quite often. For example, you can book a 1-month or a 3-month flatrate and train with us as often as you want during this period. There are flatrates with which you can attend all classes, both in the studio and outdoors, as well as livestreams. Or our affordable livestream-only flatrates.

All flatrates end automatically and you can freely decide whether you want to book again or another product is more suitable.

The class schedule on the website is always up-to-date. If a class is canceled, it is definitely marked that way. You will also receive an email informing you that the class is canceled, but this only happens very rarely.

You can cancel courses booked independently via your account or via the partner apps. If you cancel within the cancellation period, there will be no costs, the credits / check-in will be credited back 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 SHOW UP, USC will charge you a penalty fee. We have no influence on that. So please definitely cancel if you cannot come. 

Please pay attention to this cancellation deadlines:

  • studio- und outdoorclasses: 12 hours
  • livestreams: 3 hours

 

If a class is already fully booked, you can still book and put yourself on the waiting list. You will then be automatically informed by email when you move up. Experience has shown that the probability of moving up is very, very high.

Because it is possible that you move up at very short notice, you should cancel your spot on the waiting list when it gets too tight for you, so that you don't lose your credit if you move up.

If you don't move up, your credit will of course not be used.

You can only be on the waiting list with class pass cards and flatrates. Unfortunately, this option is not available for USC members.

To the classes

If you don't feel so fit after a long break, these courses are particularly suitable: Back & Fascia Fit, Stretch & Tone Pilates or Functional Circle. DeepWORK is a very intensive course, but here, too, there are levels for almost all exercises, so that you can make the course more or less intensive for yourself. The HIIT & Run or Iron Pump course requires a high level of fitness, so we do not recommend this course as an introduction after a long break.

We have described all our courses in great detail here and classified them in the categories STRENGTH & ENDURANCE, STRETCH & MOBILTY, DANCE & COORDINATION, RELAX & RECHARGE, so that you can find your way around.

If you are still not sure, please send us an email to hello@the-bodyworkers.de to discuss your individual situation and to find the most suitable courses for your fitness level.

 

Anyone who did sport before pregnancy can also be active during pregnancy. We recommend only doing light sport in the first 12 weeks, after that you can feel confident again. You can find more information about that here.

We have developed a special course for pregnant women that takes the needs of pregnancy into account. In the fit mom to be! workout example, we do no jumps or excessive abdominal muscle training. It's a fitness class, so you'll work up a sweat and work out your muscles. Since the course is 100% tailored to pregnancy, unlike all other courses, you will get on your expense.

As long as you feel comfortable, you can of course also attend almost all courses that you have attended before. But not all of our courses are suitable for pregnant women. You should therefore speak to your trainer beforehand and let them show you alternatives for jumping and abdominal muscle exercises. If in doubt, please send us an email in advance to hello@the-bodyworkers.de so that we can discuss your individual situation.

To be on the safe side, you should always discuss this with your doctor.

We strongly recommend that you first attend a post-natal training class, in which the pelvic floor is specifically strengthened and the diastasis rectus is closed. This is very, very important so that you can fully exercise again in the long term. You can start a postnatal training course from the 8th week (vaginal birth) or from the 12th week (cesarean section) after the birth.

By the way, our fit mom to be! class is also ideal for getting fit again after your first recovery (or parallel to it), for returning to your usual fitness routine. Often with the first regression, the basic requirements for a strong body are created, but fitness is not completely back, or the pelvic floor is still somewhat unstable. Because we do no jumps and excessive abdominal muscle training in fit with a baby bump, the course is wonderfully suitable for new mums to get fit again.

Only your doctor can answer that. Basically, you should be 100% fit and healthy again if you want to participate in power-workouts.

We also have classes that are definitely recommended during the healing process to build strength and flexibility again. Please send us an email to hello@the-bodyworkers.de so that we can discuss your individual situation and recommend classes to you, if necessary.

Injuries and illnesses must be reported to the trainer in advance. We try as best we can to respond to you individually and offer individual alternative exercises - but this is not always possible with group courses. Therefore, you should know your body so well that you can take a break on your own if it gets too much. It is better to start slowly, get your body used to the movement and strain again after a longer break, and gradually increase.

With us you can also be looked after individually. We offer personal training for rehabilitation after an injury and have specially trained trainers for this. Talk to us!

Many of our classes, which have a high cardio component, are suitable for losing weight. That would be for example:

To build muscle specifically, we recommend workouts that have a strong focus on strength training. That would be for example:

In Stretch & Tone Pilates we work specifically on flexibility and mobility. In dynamic flows we stretch into the deep fibers of the body. We can particularly recommend Athletic Flow, a combination of high-intensity training (HIIT) and yoga flows. A gentle method to become more flexible and supple is our Back & Fascia Fit class.

YES! Men are very welcome in all of our classes and we also have our own changing room for men in our studio.
The classes are equally effective for men and women, regardless of whether you want to build strength, improve your condition or achieve more flexibility. We are happy when the groups are mixed.

No, you can come to all of our courses without previous knowledge. Our groups are very mixed - from newcomers to absolute fitness junkies. All of our trainers are trained to offer beginners a suitable training and explain all exercises in detail and correct your execution if necessary. Nevertheless, you should be injury-free, otherwise please contact us in advance!

We are happy to advise you to find the right course for you! Write us an email at hello@the-bodyworkers.de and tell us a little bit about yourself. We help you to improve slowly and make sure that your posture and execution are perfect!

  • If you have an acute injury or illness, participation is excluded for your benefit.
  • If you have just been vaccinated or donated blood, we also recommend a 1-2 day break before you start training again.
  • It goes without saying, but let's say it at this point: If you are drunk or under the influence of strong medication, participation is excluded.
  • If you feel sick, have cold symptoms, have been infected with Corona, or have come close to someone who is infected with Corona.
