The studio offers more than 40 classes a week, starting as early as 6 a.m. and running as late as 7 p.m. Classes can have as many as 10 students, but private instruction is available by appointment.
“We’re a fun, upbeat place for all ages to learn about our approach to pilates,” said Ali Chiafery, manager of the studio. “People’s favorite thing is the support system in the community that comes with our group class approach.”
Club Pilates focuses on bringing the group experience to pilates and uses reformers, springboards, and exo-chair to help all skill levels strengthen their core muscles and backs. Using the reformers allows for a wide range of exercises and positions, some of which would be too difficult to do without them.
“Pilates is the best core strengthening around, and really builds your core muscles from the inside out,” said instructor Heather Willer. “Pilates is not a trend — it’s here to stay, and we want to educate people about what it is.”
Apparatus pilates is great for people who may need physical therapy, as well as older people who may have mobility issues. Club Pilates works with chiropractors to help their patients strengthen their back muscles.
The studio offers memberships and packages, which bring the cost down to around $12 to $17 per class. Class times can be selected online to fit any schedule.
“In a day and age when people are always hunched over their phones or computers, pilates is a great way to help with your spine and posture,” Willer said.
