Pilates Training


What is Pilates?


Pilates is a movement system designed to stretch, strengthen and balance the body, and yields numerous benefits!


The Pilates Reformer is a highly versatile, spring loaded piece of modern exercise technology. It is designed for people at all levels of physical fitness and can be individualized to meet each person’s exercise goals from the beginner to the athlete.


The reformer is designed to add resistance and support for the user and is low-impact on the joints and body. Together with The Principles of Pilates, the reformer is capable of working muscle groups that are often neglected in your typical gym session.


Members can opt for a private session with a certified Pilates Reformer instructor, try a partner session or choose a group reformer class. With a maximum of 4 students, each reformer class provides semi-private instruction, where your instructor will focus on form, technique, core strength and flexibility.
