Many people talk about the power of Pilates given the benefits it offers for both the mind and body. These benefits include:
- Increased muscle strength and tone
- Improved posture
- Stronger core
- Enhanced muscle control
- Heightened body awareness
- Stress management and relaxation
…and so much more.
Aaptiv’s Pilates category has something to offer for almost everyone, regardless of fitness experience or age. Runners, strength training enthusiasts, yogis and cardio fans all benefit from Pilates.
The new Pilates category will educate members on classic and contemporary Pilates exercises using bodyweight only. Each individual class will focus on specific parts of the body and will be under 40 minutes, so members can mix and match based on what type of workout they are looking for.
Who are the trainers?
