Contrology [Pilates] develops the body uniformly, corrects wrong postures, restores physical vitality, invigorates the mind, and elevates the spirit.

What Can I Expect In A Session? 

 

You’ve probably heard the name tossed around but what IS Pilates exactly? In short: a specific series of exercises which build from inside out, with thousands of variations that can be done on a mat or equipment. Pilates equipment utilizes springs, ropes and a gliding track, adding movement sense and eccentric action to your full body challenge. And no, it’s not just for dancers (although we LOVE our dancer clients). If you like details read on…

The exercises have names like “Mermaid,” “Swan” and “Stomach Massage,” BUT don’t be deceived. These moves are neither too complicated for beginners nor too easy for athletes. It’s all in your personalized program. We emphasize precision, posture and control to maximize your benefits: stronger and leaner muscles, added flexibility and balance, increased energy and sense of well-being. Everything you need to live the life you were meant to! 

Sessions are normally 1 hour long. It’s most effective to train several times a week, but once a week will still get the job done. BONUS: we can even give you routines for home or on the road. At Fit-Arts we teach STOTT PILATES®, a contemporary approach to the original exercise system pioneered by Joseph Pilates. This refined method includes modern principles of exercise science and rehabilitation—making it one of the safest and most effective methods available.
