PERSONALIZED

The unparalleled benefits of Pilates are a result of over 500 exercises uniquely designed to meet you where you are and challenge the body’s stretch, strength and control you want.

POWERHOUSE

In Pilates, every exercise is initiated from your Powerhouse (the abdominal muscles, hips, low back muscles and buttocks). The Powerhouse stabilizes your movements and gives you the coordination, energy and strength to execute even the most difficult exercises smoothly and easily, surpassing your highest goals.

STRENGTHENING

Each exercise challenges the body to new levels, working the body in its entirety, making you feel, move and look your best. The Pilates system of exercises are executed on the mat, barrels and spring-based apparatuses such as the Reformer, Cadillac, Wunda Chair, High Chair and Pedi-Pole (to name a few) conceived by Joseph Pilates.

INJURY PREVENTION & PAIN RELIEF

With every exercise incorporating stretch, strength and control, your movements become fluid and regain their natural range of motion leaving your spine supple and your joints flexible yet supported.

LEAN, TONE BODY

Working every muscle in your body, Pilates recruits smaller muscle groups and avoids overworking or “bulking up” your major muscle groups. Stretching while working against the resistance of springs creates elongated muscles resulting in a lean, tone body.

Joseph
Pilates

Born in Germany in 1883, Joseph H. Pilates had a lifelong interest in body conditioning. While interned in England during World War I for his German citizenship, he started to systematize his body conditioning method. This system formed the foundation for his style of body conditioning and specialized exercise apparatus. When Joseph Pilates passed away in 1967, his method of body conditioning was recognized as the most efficient and effective system of body development and continues to be practiced by leading athletes, performers and fitness enthusiasts across the globe.
