Postural Assessment

This 55 minute private assessment will introduce you to the basic principles of Pilates and allow The PilatesBody, Inc. to design a program based on your individual needs. All new clients are required to have a postural assessment prior to participating in training at The PilatesBody, Inc.

Private Session

The PilatesBody, Inc. recommends at least five private sessions for every new client.  This will allow the client to better understand Pilates, the equipment, and their body. The individualized attention will be valuable in each subsequent session.  

Private sessions utilize a variety of apparatuses to train the client. The Reformer is the most widely used piece of equipment, but other pieces, such as the Cadillac, Stability Chair, Ladder Barrel and Mat are also utilized during a private session. The client and trainer work together to improve the client's strength, agility and flexibility.

Duet Session

Duet sessions partner two clients of similar abilities with one trainer.  A variety of equipment is utilized similar to a private session.

Group Session

Group sessions are typically done on the reformer. It is during these groups that The PilatesBody, Inc. trainers try to emphasize the concept of flow. Fast paced exercises and short transitions tend to make these groups high in intensity.

Mat Classes

Mat classes are strictly performed on pilates mats. Each class can have anywhere from five to ten individuals, with the trainer focusing on cuing the group in each movement. These classes are fast-paced, and sometimes use weighted toning balls, resistance bands, fitness circles and other equipment to increase intensity.

Personal Training

The PilatesBody, Inc. currently employs five certified personal trainers. Personal training sessions are offered as privates, duets or groups. Each session uses a variety of weighted and resistance equipment to build muscle and cardiovascular endurance. They are an excellent complement to our traditional Pilates classes.

TRX Suspension Training

TRX Suspension Training is a revolutionary method of leveraged bodyweight exercises that allows you to be in control and safely perform hundreds of exercises that build strength, flexibility, mobility, and cardio endurance all at the intensity that works for you.  You are in control of how much you want to challenge yourself with every TRX exercise because you can adjust your body position to instantly adapt resistance.  Get quick, total body workouts with full body movements that engage the core, upper body and lower body simultaneously.
