Pilates is a form of movement that involves strengthing both the awareness and function of often ignored muscles, particularly those that make up the “core.” I have been doing it for more than half my life and it is an important part of my training method. In addition to a tighter midsection, you will improve mobility, stability, balance, breathing mechanics, posture and an understanding of your body that will take your training to the next level. Your back, shoulders, hips, and feet in particular will be so grateful.
I strongly recommend including Pilates into your routine 1-2 per week both for cross training and before returning to lifting after time off from injury, pregnancy, or anything else.
Group mat Pilates classes are offered at 5:30am Tuesdays and Fridays.
I also offer individual sessions that will include the reformer, spine corrector, and various other props. I highly encourage beginners to start here!
