Pilates is a total body workout program which offers a unique challenge to your strength and flexibility. Your certified Pilates Instructor will help you maintain good form and proper posture throughout the movement for the most effective training session. While Mat Pilates is offered through our free Group Fitness schedule, our private Pilates training provides these additional benefits:

  • One on One -- our instructor checks your form and caters the session to your goals.
  • Equipment:
    • The Reformer – a moving spring-loaded platform that facilities core training.  Exercises are done lying, sitting, kneeling, standing, and jumping.
    • The Wall Tower – a spring-based apparatus with strategically placed hooks that provide different levels of tension and a push through bar that helps you isolate articulation of the spine.
    • The Wunda Chair – a box and pedal unit that connects you deep into your powerhouse and requires the use of strength, centering, balance and control to perform each exercise.
  • Privacy. You’ll be behind closed doors in the peaceful Mind/Body Studio inside Brodie Recreation Center on East Campus (Pilates Personal Training is not offered at Wilson).
