mat pilates

It's Thursday January 2nd, you are looking at your New Year resolutions to get more exercise and get back into the studio.  Guess what we have a 9am mat class to start you on your way.  If you haven't done a mat class before here are some reasons why.  If you have here are some reminders.  The cost of mat classes are less, especially with a punch pass and Sonia is great about changing them up.  A few weeks ago we even did some TRX in one of the classes.  It is never boring and always a great core workout.  Many think it get's the core, your powerhouse, even better than equipment.  Plus you can target specific area's like upper body or arms! Mat Pilates is a form of exercise that is done on the floor. It utilizes the core (which helps with stability and teaches you control), lengthens your muscles and strengthens you from the inside out. It focuses on internal obliques, stablizers in your spine and is very flowing, it’s a non stop (work out). It targets every single muscle in your body and aligns muscles and joints. It focuses on core control. Joseph Pilates called it ‘contrology’. You teach your mind to control your body instead of your body controlling your mind. In Mat Pilates you use your weight as resistance, on equipment you have the springs and pulleys to help guide you.

“In 10 sessions, you will feel the difference. In 20, you will see the difference. And in 30, you’ll be on your way to having a whole new body.”

– Joseph Pilates

We hope to see you there bright and early, Thursday morning to start your year off right!  Remember, 9am mat class, put it on you schedule NOW!
