Burn. Sweat. Sculpt. Love.
PLTS offers two workouts unlike any other: the best high intensity, small-group Reformer Pilates and Barre workouts that will transform your entire body. The complementary workouts strengthen your core, improve flexibility and alignment, and get your heart pumping during every 50 minute class for the toned and strong body you’re after.
How it works
Each PLTS Reformer Pilates and Barre class has a maximum of 14 members per class, ensuring personalized attention for constant guidance and improvement. Challenge yourself to change your body and feel more confident and empowered every day.
Create an account, purchase the package of your choice, and reserve your spot in any available class. We recommend all first-timers at PLTS try a 3 Class Trial Pack to get a feel for the workouts & try our Reformer Pilates Foundations Class.
Get ready to plank, lunge, pike, twist, and catfish your way through this high-intensity workout filled with our own take on your favorite Pilates exercises. Each Reformer Pilates class is done on our very own PLTS reformer machine, so your full-body workout will take place with the resistance of weighted springs, resulting in constant (and killer) core engagement.
This workout activates your slow-twitch muscle fibers, leading to the lean and toned muscles you’re looking for, not to mention the enormous amount of calories you’ll be burning each class. PLTS Reformer Pilates classes will challenge you to achieve more with that powerful body of yours than you ever dreamed you could.
Our beat-driven and intense Barre class will help you achieve the sculpted, strong and lean body you’re after. Through a mix of fitness exercises based loosely on traditional ballet moves, you’ll get the best of both worlds. Each barre routine is a full-body workout that’s high intensity, challenging, and fun, not only leaving you feeling energized, but toning your muscles, sculpting your body, and strengthening your core.
One of PLTS’s co-founders, Renée Vervoorn, is a woman who does it all. From her beginnings as a successful model and tv host, she has become a well-established entrepreneur.
A longtime fitness enthusiast, Renée fell in love with high-intensity Reformer Pilates and Barre while in California in 2016 and was determined to bring the concept home. She immediately recognized this unique take on reformer pilates was a workout that her friends would jump at the chance to do. She and her husband Guy van der Reijden, a renowned lifestyle and personal fitness entrepreneur, set out to create this new venture together.
With a winning combination of a fun, intense, total body-toning concept and a kickass team of trainers, PLTS has become the leading high-intensity Reformer Pilates studio. Renée and her husband are hard at work growing the PLTS empire, rapidly expanding in Amsterdam with massive plans in place to take on the Netherlands and beyond.
Tips & tricks for your first time at PLTS
We recommend that for all first-timers at PLTS you take the PLTS Reformer Foundations class to get a feel for the PLTS reformer machine and exercises you’ll be doing each workout.
Before your first class, please arrive 15 minutes early so one of our front desk team members can show you around the studio and lockers!
Don’t be shy, make sure you introduce yourself to the trainer before class starts so they can show you around the class equipment and machine.
Grip socks are required each class for hygienic reasons and to ensure your safety, so please bring your own or plan to purchase a pair when you arrive at the studio.
We recommend that you wear comfortable workout clothing, think: leggings or shorts, a top and a sports bra – whatever makes you feel most comfortable during class! Just remember, you’re going to sweat (a lot 😉 ), and while on the reformer, move quickly on the machine, so don’t wear anything too loose or dangling that could get caught!

Frequently Asked Questions
Is PLTS reformer pilates the same as traditional reformer pilates?
No. While at PLTS we base our reformer pilates workouts on the core principles of traditional reformer pilates, the concept is unique to PLTS and you won’t find anything else quite like it!
Do you have a beginners class?
For all first-timers taking a PLTS reformer pilates class, we recommend trying out the PLTS Reformer Pilates Foundations class. After your first class, if you asked yourself, “WTF is going on?!”, don’t worry – you’re not alone. For many of our rockstars, it took a few lessons to feel like they got the hang of things on the reformer or at the barre. Stick with it & you’ll soon get why everyone’s crazy about PLTS.
Are PLTS classes meant for all levels of fitness?
Both Reformer Pilates and Barre classes can be attended by everyone. If you are beginner, it is perfectly fine to modify and do less repetitions if need be, or pause to take a breather! Please feel free to mention if you’re a beginner to your trainer before class begins, and they will assist you throughout the class.
If you’re more advanced, you can always take PLTS classes up a notch, too! We offer more advanced classes, or simply let your trainer know beforehand and they will assist you with making the class more intense.
How many times a week should I workout at PLTS?
Practice makes perfect! Try 2 to 3 PLTS classes weekly, combining PLTS Reformer Pilates and PLTS Barre to really see & feel the results you want. We recommend you try your first 3 classes within 10 days of each other!
Do you sell water?
We offer favorite brands of refreshing water like Marie-Stella-Maris and Coconut Water to keep you hydrated throughout each high-intensity, kickass class.
Do you have lockers?
Yes! Before class begins, please be sure to place all of your personal belongings in lockers outside the studios or the changing rooms. Don’t hesitate to ask a front desk team member if you need any help. We are not responsible for any lost or stolen goods that are not properly placed inside a locker.
Do the studios have showers?
PLTS offers beautiful and clean changing rooms with lockers, fresh towels, and luxurious care products to allow you to freshen up after class!
I’m pregnant or have recently had a baby! Can I do PLTS workouts?
Both classes are applicable for pregnant women – the barre routine is safe all the way through your pregnancy and the reformer routine is possible up until your sixth or seventh month of pregnancy. After birth, you are able to rejoin barre classes after about eight weeks, and rejoin reformer classes after about three to four months! However, please consult your physician before attending any of our classes during pregnancy and after giving birth!
How do I create an account with PLTS?
Do you offer discounts?
Is it possible to bring a friend on my account and package?
Although we know working out can be even better with a buddy, each spot must be reserved by an individual PLTS rockstar. We love when you spread the PLTS love and bring a friend, but they will need their own account!
