The troupe of passionate instructors at Reforming Indy motivate guests through equipment-based Pilates classes. Featuring a brand new, larger studio location in Fishers/Geist, the team is dedicated to making it as successful as their Carmel studio?which earned the CityVoter award for Best Pilates Studio from 2008 to 2014. Both locations host small group classes, leading students through moves that challenge them to use their body weight as resistance in functional exercises. With continued practice, students can evenly tone and develop muscle groups across the entire body, with an emphasis on the posture-supporting core muscles. In addition to these amenities, clients can partake in a fitness program with a myriad of classes, such as body burn, Pilates barre fusion, tabata tone, mat Pilates, and TRX classes.
At Carmel Total Fitness? 20,000-square-foot facility rows of cardio machines, strength-training equipment, and free weights stretch as far as the eye can see. The enthused staff of certified personal trainers eagerly await clients to design one-on-one training sessions or to answer questions from members as they fly through their own self-devised regimes. The center offers more than 40 fitness classes, such as Pilates mat, power core, yoga, heart race cycle, and Zumba are held in the wood-floored fitness studio, while pickup games of dodgeball, racquetball, or Red Rover take place on one of the onsite courts. After a tough workout, members can relax and rest in the sauna, or enhance their sculpted physique in the tanning booth.
Seasons Light Therapy's team of aestheticians harnesses the restorative powers of noninvasive light to tone tired faces and banish skin discoloration. The succinct menu boasts LumiLift treatments, also known as nonsurgical face-lifts, during which strobes of pulsating light and micronized currents travel deep into the dermis to stimulate collagen production and tighten slack muscles without stern reprimands. Clients can also settle under the LumiFacial's Soli-Tone wraparound panel, which, like a malfunctioning rainbow, emits four different colors of healing light. Taking in these vibrant rays has been shown to reduce the appearance of sun damage, fine lines, and acne. Microdermabrasion treatments also target these epidermal symptoms, smoothing over skin with fine sprays of exfoliating mineral crystals.
Like many success stories, the Core Fitness tale begins when a business executive quit her job to pursue her true dream. For Nanci Mora, her dream was to become a fitness instructor. After 10 years of training and working as a trainer, she began conducting her own Pilates classes for three friends in her home. As word of Nanci's replenishing and invigorating Pilates workouts spread, her class size continued to expand in an inverse relationship to her students’ waistlines.
Today, Nanci continues to teach Pilates at her own professional studio, Core Fitness, where she and a staff of dancers, Pilates instructors, and fitness professionals teach workout classes throughout the week. Amidst the studio's earth-toned walls and towering mirrors, professional Pilates reformer machines help clients tone bodies.
Pilates allows you to build a rock-solid body without turning into Rocky. Strength comes through endurance and repetition rather than pumping pounds of kilograms of iron. Weak backs and flimsy core muscles benefit from the slow but steady regimen, and the addition of equipment amplifies results. Springboard classes, conducted with nothing but a resistant springboard and a lot of super-motivating eye contact, last 45 minutes and are currently available seven times a week in Pilates of Carmel's intimate-yet-airy studio. Held in small groups with as many as six students, these introductory sessions encompass the basics of Pilates, lay the foundation for lifelong strength, and prepare you for more-advanced machine and resistance work.
