Pilates

Pilates is a full-body conditioning method that is designed to both stretch and strengthen the body through an individualized workout that utilizes a selection of over 500 exercises. With certified Pilates instructors extensively trained in a variety of areas to enhance performance, optimize health and healing process, transition from physical therapy to a regular exercise regimen, builds confidence in movement and retrains poor movement mechanics. I’d then separate the personal training to incorporate all their pieces.

You can take three private sessions for $150.  This is a great way to learn more about it to see if Pilates is right for you.

Who Should Do Pilates?
