If you have never been to a Pilates class before, it may be a bit intimidating to see all the equipment. But it is as easy as learning how to use weights at the gym. You can perform a vast range of exercises and Pilates moves on the Reformers, Chair, and Towers, using the springs to provide guidance and resistance throughout your workout. Our group classes tend to be a bit more of a work out while using the classic Pilates principles. The classes tone and firm up the entire body, with special emphasis on the core. The springs can be adjusted to different resistance levels to whatever is right for you. We want you to walk away with an energized wow feeling.
Pilates doesn’t stress your body in the ways that lifting weights or other workout methods may, this is why everyone can do it. Your bones will strengthen, muscles will tone and firm, and you will look fit. But, most of all, as you work out and begin to feel better physically, we hope you will also begin to feel better mentally.
You’ll stand taller, move with grace and most importantly, feel great.
What to Wear
Wear comfortable workout clothes that you feel ok sweating in. You’ll be laying down some of the time (yes, laying down and working out!) with your hands or legs in the air so make sure your clothes move with you. You don’t have to wear shoes or socks – though you can wear Pilates socks giving you better grip for some of the exercises.
