Each song track has a different focus, including Total Body Opener, Hundreds, Crazy Cardio, Ab Challenge, Back Work, Thigh Burnout, Flexibility, and so much more! We mean it when we say no muscle is left untouched.
Designed as an equipment-free class with a range of movement modifications, POP Pilates® is for everybody.
This new studio style class will be offered Wednesday evenings at 6pm beginning Wednesday, September 15th! Be sure to grab your spot now, space is limited!
Back to school, back to YOU!
Sadly enough, summer vacation is coming to an end. And while it’s nice for the kids to be out of school and for teachers to be off work, it sure has a way of messing with one’s routine. Between baseball games, summer picnics and trips to the splash pad, health and fitness often time falls to the wayside.
But, with that all coming to an end, we want next month to be all about YOU! And to help you get back on track, we want to make you an offer you can’t refuse 😉
Beginning Wednesday, September 1st, through Thursday, September 30th, ANYONE who takes 10 equipment classes (that’s right TEN equipment style classes) in 30 days, gets ONE free equipment class added to their next package! It’s literally that simple! Show up for yourself, and we’ll reward you!
What do you have to lose?! Get yourself on the schedule NOW, as classes will fill up quickly!
P.S. keep and eye out to see if we will be running classes on Monday, September 7th (Labor Day) to give you every opportunity to get your workout in!
Be sure to check out our Labor Day schedule on MindBody!
Start the school year on the right foot and get your sessions in!
|Meet our subs!|
Although we’re still waiting on baby, Francesca is officially on maternity leave! But don’t worry, all of your favorite classes throughout the week are being covered! With some familiar, and some new, faces!
One of the greatest things about working with a different trainer is seeing things through a new lens. You’ll hear different cueing that may make a difficult concept stick, you’ll learn new exercises and you’ll spice things up — which will also help to jumpstart your results!
Over the summer please keep these things in mind when scheduling your classes! Switch up trainers, try new classes and be sure to take a class from all three of our studio subs! And if you can’t make it to class, please be sure to contact the studio directly if you need assistance in cancelling!
