Pilates is a physical fitness system developed in the early 20th century by Joseph Pilates. Pilates called his method "Contrology."

Pilates helps build flexibility, muscle strength, and endurance in the legs, abdominals, arms, hips, and back. It puts emphasis on spinal and pelvic alignment, breathing, and developing a strong core, while improving coordination and balance. Pilates' system allows for different exercises to be modified in range of difficulty from beginning to advanced. Intensity can be increased over time as the body conditions and adapts to the exercises.

Beginner Mat is the foundation for all other Pilates mat classes. You will learn the basic exercises and concepts of Pilates while gaining core strength, stability and greater flexibility. Regardless of your athletic ability, if you have had no previous experience with Pilates, you'll need to take this class in order to learn proper technique for the exercises, and to safely and efficiently progress to the next level.

We will move through a series of exercises, followed by sprints on the bike between each circuit
The focus of this class is to not only increase your strength and power, but also to correct any compensations or weaknesses by using corrective exercises to prevent injury and inefficiencies that keep you from becoming a better rider. If the Body lacks mobility or the ability to go through a full range of motion in a particular movement pattern the body sets up a stability where it needs a mobility. When mobility and stability are in balance, and all segments are synchronized, movement is graceful and potentially powerful. when they are not, the result is often injury or disappointing performance. 
Intermediate Pilates helps build flexibility, muscle strength, and endurance in the legs, abdominal, arms, hips, and back.
