New to Pilates?

Pilates. A fresh approach to fitness. Quality you can feel.

Getting Started with a Pilates Reformer Workout is Easy!

Please read our Health & Safety Protocols and reach out if you have any questions.

INTERESTING FACT: Pilates has already gone through the Flu Pandemic of 1918. The Spanish Flu was sweeping the world and would ultimately kill as many as 50 million people. Pilates is thought to have kept many people from getting ill. By its very design Pilates is one big boost for the immune system!

Whether you want to strengthen your core, rehab from an injury, create long, lean, and strong muscles, or improve flexibility or balance, Pilates offers plenty of benefits to your body, no matter your age, your size, or level of fitness. Pilates is one of the most important things you can do for your fitness and for yourself!

What is Pilates and what are the benefits?

Pilates is a system of more than 500 exercises that condition the whole body as well as engage the mind. The blend of resistance, strength and flexibility training improves posture, reduces stress and creates long, lean muscles without bulking up. Pilates works the entire body simultaneously through continuous motion, with a specific focus on the core, the body’s “powerhouse” (abdomen, back and pelvic region).

We offer equipment-based group classes and private sessions. You can find out more about our Pilates equipment here.

The Benefits of Pilates

Pilates can really make a difference in your health without taking a toll on your body.

Since it’s creation 100 years ago, Pilates has been practiced to increase muscle strength, develop a strong core and improve flexibility, posture, and balance. Additional research suggests that Pilates also has a wide range of mental health benefits and is a great cross-training workout for athletes.

What can I expect in my first Pilates Session?

Your first session is all about you.

  • Learn about the Pilates equipment, how Pilates works, and be introduced to the basic Pilates exercises.
  • Our professionally certified instructors will individualize a workout program that is safe and challenging, focusing on your body’s needs.
  • Feel free to ask lots of questions!
  • Keep in mind that Pilates, like anything else, takes practice and time.
