Privates & Semi-Privates on The Reformer
What is a Reformer, and what makes it so special? Well, it is not named a Reformer for nothing. It truly "reforms" your body, and the way you move.
The equipment has a sliding carriage that moves back and forth, and a spring resistance system to provide either resistance, or assistance depending on your needs. Since the reformer is a non-impact way to strengthen your body, we can assist clients that may not be able to engage in traditional training methods, whether due to age, injury, or just as a newcomer to fitness. On the other hand, the Reformer can add resistance to those who are already proficient in pilates and increase performance and strength in even the most avid athletes.
Traditional methods of training and developing the body tend to produce short, bulky muscles, precisely the type of musculature most prone to injury. Pilates elongates the spine, increasing the elasticity of muscles and flexibility of joints. This balance between strength and flexibility drastically reduces the potential for injury. It's no wonder that professional athletes, dancers, and golfers alike have relied on Pilates to enhance their performance.
At the Absolute Studio, we have several different options for training on the equipment.
You can attend private sessions or semi-private sessions for one hour or one-half hour. A Semi-Private is a group of 2-3 people training together.
MOTR combines the comfort of a foam roller with the challenge of three weight level resistances, giving you a challenging and incredibly diverse workout tool. Exercise categories include cardio, balance, functional training, mind-body, agility, strength training and more. Join a class today.
We may use a Ballet Barre, but this is NOT barre work for dancer's only. In fact, this class can strengthen a dancer's technique, but most attendees are runners, cyclists, and have no dance experience whatsoever. We purposely designed this class for non-dancers, as a way to cross-train the full body in various sports and interests. This is a class designed for anyone who wants to lift, tone and burn every muscle from head to toe. The class begins with a standing warm-up, followed by a series of arm work & planks. After burning up your upper body, prepare for the best burn of your life as the class moves to the barre to begin standing work to tone every angle of your lower body, while maintaining core engagement and reminders of posture. Class will end with abdominal focus, and stretching and elongating those muscles!
Introducing the new CORE SUSPEND - from the Core Systems of Smart Movement®. Build strength without the use of weights!
The stability comes from the instability! The two independently moving suspension points triggers the deep, stabilizing muscles of the body to contract and support the joints. Continued training with dual suspension strengthens these muscles and builds incredible strength in your outer muscles as well!
The unique SUSPEND sling system also aids in decompressing the spine and balancing the body by exercising it in multiple planes of movement that aim at developing strength, length, stability and nueromuscular awareness at the same time.
