Pilates Plus offers a fresh and innovative workout specifically designed to strengthen, tighten, and tone the body quickly and safely. This workout is largely based on the fundamental principles of Pilates, but also emphasizes strength training and cardio endurance to achieve muscle definition and peak physical fitness than traditional Pilates, weight-training and/or cardio workouts alone.
By incorporating the key principles of Pilates (correct postural alignment, breathing practice, centering and engaging the core, concentration and precision of controlled movement and increased flexibility) and blending them with muscle dynamics, Pilates Plus is the most innovative and aggressive approach to full body conditioning. Formed in small group class settings, students benefit from the energy of a group class setting with the personal attention of a private training session.
With multiple class formats, students integrate resistance and counter-resistance workouts using concentric, eccentric and isometric contractions is a sequence to promote muscle fatigue. The progressive overloading works to maximize muscle fiber stimulation creating the greatest metabolic response. The composition of this method encourages maximum exertion and the personal attention of the small group setting reduces the risk for injury. This sequence also promotes muscle flexibility and elasticity. Students quickly see the results of a long, lean and powerful body, combating the negative effects of our stressful work-life and sedentary modern lifestyle.
This is not traditional Pilates – this is Pilates PLUS, an intense workout designed to improve both strength and muscular endurance, increase cardio respiratory endurance, jump-start the metabolism to change body composition, as well as improve flexibility and the postural alignment, efficiently and effectively.
Pilates Plus provides LA’s premiere workout with a celebrity clientele list, such as Rebecca Romijn, Nicole Kidman, Ben Stiller, Marcia Cross, Ali Larter, Brooke Burke, Hayden Panettiere and many more.
