Hi, Claire here. I usually do Stott Pilates - it was the recovery exercise of choice for me after I had a bike accident years ago, and I stuck with it. I've done a lot of Pilates, so when I visited my friend in the Middle East and went to her Pilates class, I was confident that I would be able to follow easily.

I was wrong. They asked me my experience with Pilates in general, but didn't ask me for details. I hadn't noticed that the studio was a Classical Pilates studio, and it took a while before I was comfortable with the new movements and cues.

This would have been solved if, during the signup process they had prompted me with questions like "How much experience do you have with Pilates" and "What style(s) of Pilates are you most familiar with?"

Once you have the experience level of your customers in your database, you can figure out what classes they should attend. You can do this automatically with memberships.

Memberships allow you to discretely offer classes that are only appropriate for that specific membership level. That helps beginners not accidentally find themselves in an experienced class, and vice versa.
