Who can do Pilates?
Pilates is great for everybody. Whatever your fitness level is — from total newbie to trained dancer — we can create a personalized workout that will improve your strength, flexibility and posture. We’ve worked with all types of clients and their goals, like preparing for a special event such as a wedding or a race, to people just wanting to feel better and more confident in their bodies on a daily basis.
Do you offer classes?
Our studio caters to private and duet sessions only, so we do not offer group classes. Duets are a good option if budget is a concern for you, however, we ask that you bring your own partner, friend or co-worker since we do not pair people up.
What is your parking situation?
Our clients typically find street parking on 5th Avenue within a block or two of our studio, usually right on our block.
How often should I do Pilates?
We recommend doing Pilates at least once a week. Most of our clients work with us once, twice or three times a week, but depending on your budget and goals, you could easily do Pilates everyday.
Will Pilates help me lose weight?
Pilates is most often a low intensity exercise, so you are not likely to get a strong enough cardio workout to lose weight. However Pilates will definitely increase your muscle tone, especially in your abdominal area so you will look skinnier. We also find that committing to a fitness routine helps our clients make better diet choices and helps them stay committed to living a healthier lifestyle — which in turn, helps them shed some extra pounds.
Can I do Pilates if I have an injury?
Absolutely! We love helping clients with injuries and have tons of success getting people back to doing what they love. We have also been trained to work with pregnant women, and those with scoliosis and osteoporosis.
Can men do Pilates?
Pilates was created by a man, so yes, men can do Pilates. In fact, numerous NBA, NFL and other professional athletes, both male and female, love doing Pilates. Pilates lovers include: Lebron James, Kobe Bryant and swimmer Natalie Coughlin.
