Pilates Reformer at VIDA Fitness

VIDA Fitness Pilates ReformerYou claim yoga’s not your thing (even if you haven’t actually tried it), it just doesn’t seem your pace. But you know how important it is to do exercise that focuses on aligning your mind and body and working on strengthening the muscles you need to do functional, everyday movements.

Enter Pilates. The perfect workout for anyone who wants a strong core, a total body workout experience, improved flexibility and posture, and reduced stress. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg.

Pilates is very much a balanced approach workout and develops the body to perform optimally for both athletic and daily activities. Pilates also helps build strength in all of those key areas people want to tone: core, glutes and the back.

“Everyone benefits from core strength, and by core I don’t just mean your six pack. Your core is three-dimensional, it protects your organs, and facilitates mobility,” said Eric Schwarz, Group Fitness Manager at VIDA Fitness at City Vista.

Joseph Pilates developed the reformer concept over 100 years ago when he attached springs to a hospital bed as a form of rehabilitation. While the setting has changed, the mechanics are similar, and the resistance has dramatically increased.

From people who love to train hard and need days to deep stretch it all out, to people who need a full body, strengthening workout, but aren’t ones to hit the weight room, Pilates is for everyone.

Additionally, if you like the group setting you can balance out your reformer training with Pilates mat classes, cycle, or conditioning classes throughout the week. Or you can hop on all of our new, state of the art cardio equipment before or after your Pilates Reformer training to really break a sweat.

So if this sounds like the change you’ve needed in your fitness routine, claim your spot in class now. “Everyone is loving it. I recently had to double our class offerings because we have to accommodate all of the requests,” Eric said.

A lot of our demand is because of our amazing instructors. At VIDA we get the best of the best instructors and bring those on who are interested in continued growth as an instructor, which ensures continues growth for our students as well, Eric said.

Not only are they talented, they’re all cool and great to be around, spending an hour in their class tough, but it’s fun too!
