Bikini season may be behind us, but that doesn’t mean we can’t keep our bodies in tip-top shape for the remainder of the year. Britney’s tried a tone of workouts and is no stranger to circuit training classes, but Pilates seems to be her latest obsession for a go-to sweat session. If you’re unfamiliar with Pilates, here’s the low down. It’s a low-impact workout that target’s your core and is excellent for muscle isolation.
Britney reveals she is in the best shape of her life and credits her new long and lean muscles to Forma Pilates. The referral-based studio is located in Los Angeles and is a favorite of models like Hailey Bieber and Kendall Jenner. Though the studio is exclusive, Forma also offers online classes, which you can sign-up for here.

Before starting semi-privates at Forma, Britney had to take a private session to ensure she was comfortable with a reformer machine and was familiar with basic Pilates moves that included foot sequences and leg circles. Five minutes into her first session with instructor Elizabeth, Britney felt the burn. She recalls jokingly telling Elizabeth to take a break and lounge by the pool so that she did not focus her full attention on Britney.
Thankfully classes at Forma are either private or semi-private, so there is nowhere to hide during the hour-long session. The instructors cater to each client’s individual needs, making for a more personalized and successful workout. If you want to see results quickly, this is the Pilates class for you. “I felt more confident in my body and noticed my posture improved too,” Britney says. “I was working out muscles with Mackenna that I never knew existed.” Mackenna is another Forma Pilates instructor who has a background in dance and introduced Britney to reformer workouts that included incorporating a mini-trampoline. “Mackenna always made adjustments accordingly, and the experience at the LA-based studio always felt very personal.”
Britney explains that she’s been spoiled at Forma Pilates and can’t imagine going back to taking Pilates classes with larger class sizes. She notes once you go Forma, you can’t go back.
