Tips for Classes at Pulse Inferno
Hydrate Hydrate Hydrate! Can’t stress this enough! Please drink lots of water before you come to class especially if you are participating in a heated workout. Please don’t forget your water bottle.
Please bring a mat & large towel that covers your mat (if you are taking a heated class - this helps improve grip). We do not rent mats for hygienic reasons. If you do forget your mat, we do sell mats & towels at the front desk.
Try not to eat to heavily 2 hours before class
Make-up and face creams can get into your eyes when sweating during class which can cause your eyes to burn. Cleaning your face before class can help. Also bringing a small hand towel to class can be useful too.
TOWELS & TOILETRIES
At PULSE INFERNO, you are family. So we have you covered.
Dry towels are given before class for all your sweat needs and cold, lavender infused towels are given at the end of class to leave you feeling invigorated.
LOCKERS & SHOWERS
Our lockers are for your use and can be set with a custom combination code.
We have two showers, one for the ladies and one for the guys, so you can leave the studio fresh and clean.
What time should I arrive for class?
We recommend arriving 10 to 15 minutes before class especially if it’s your first time at our Studio. We would love to give all first-time arrivals a quick tour before heading on in for their class! We highly recommend that you sign up online to reserve your spot for class through the MindBody App.
What do I need to bring for class?
Please bring a Mat, Towel, Water, and your smile!
For all Studio Classes it is mandatory that all participants bring a yoga mat and towel. We do not provide mats nor rent mats at Pulse Inferno due to hygienic reasons.

We are for everyone and everyone is welcome!

Some of our classes require no shoes. These classes are the following formats: Inferno Barre, Inferno Pilates, Inferno Fusion, and all Yoga formats. Please leave all shoes outside the studio room.
Out of respect for your fellow members please silence your devices and store them outside the studio room. If you have a special circumstance that requires you to carry your phone please let the front desk or instructor know.
Food & Drink
We are big on keeping it clean especially in our lovely studio rooms. Be respectful to members and staff by not bringing in cups or uncapped bottles. We would hate for your water to be knocked over and disrupt the class. Also please NO food in the studio.

We do provide spray for you to clean your mat after class in turn please clean the area around your mat of any extra sweat.
Please ensure showering is brief after class to prevent others from waiting. As well Pulse Inferno does not provide bath towels so please bring your own from home to use.
