Do you ever catch yourself saying, 'my balance is off' or my 'core needs work'? Do you have hips, joints, shoulders, etc., that have a hard time on conventional weight lifting machines or dumbbells and/or group fitness classes? On the flip side, are you bored with the abs machine and planking? Well, you probably know what I'm about to say...I HAVE THE ANSWER FOR YOU! : )
Years ago, when I took my first reformer class, honestly, I wanted to dig out my eyes for the first five minutes. I couldn't understand how such a slow paced workout with light weight could do anything for me. Boy was I wrong. My fitness background is in weight lifting, HIIT, a variety of group fitness and Lagree (Butcher Shop/German Village/New Albany). Generally speaking, fast paced heavy resistance exercise. I'd say my Pilates experience began right around the time I fell in love with Yoga. Speaking of, If you don't go to Lara Falberg's classes, you should. Anyways, Pilates opened my eyes to a completely different form of exercise with an emphasis on spine health, alignment, core awareness and focus. While my intent is still to make you sweat, I have a fitness/fast paced approach to Pilates. I can directly thank my certification for that, too. I am not classically trained, Stott, Merrithew, etc. I received my cert after roughly a year of workshops, practicals, shadowing and being shadowed from The Pilates Studio. Amazing ladies, by-the-way. Anyways. I learned that incorporating the Contrology method by Joe Pilates and fitness, we can achieve a happy medium of sweat and alignment work.
So, why here? Why UA? #amazeballs. This studio is GORGEOUS! I firmly believe it is a hidden gem of Henderson Road! We have seven beds, including a cadilliac, towers, two barrels, three chairs and a pedi pole. WHAAAAAAAAT. Yup. True statement.
Anyways - Christmas is coming and you love your loved ones and you can show them by getting them the best gift, ever. I have great options for either newbies or advanced!
4 Group classes - $100 (must have taken Reformer before)
If you've never done it, the Intro lesson is $60
3 Private sessions - 1 30 minute and two 1 hour sessions - $148
Well. I'll stop chatting up the method and just show you some cool stuff. Reformer Pilates has SO many pieces and parts. Here are a few of my favorite exercises on the equipment. Sorry about the background noise.
