Pilates of Cherry Creek offers a fully equipped studio for fitness seekers looking to firm up and shed pounds in a welcoming and supportive atmosphere. Opened in 2001, Pilates of Cherry Creek uses the tried-and-true Pilates method to strengthen cores and increase dexterity much more effectively than untangling the tedious knots of a Sega Master System’s controllers. During the 55-minute one-on-one lesson, students will receive attentive instruction to help overcome weaknesses and reinforce strengths. The Sunday mat class provides a supportive group environment where participants can obtain a challenging yet accessible workout that’s much more fun than attending boot-camp sessions with Fristensky, the circus strongman. Additionally, an experienced staff of flexible body benders guides students toward the elusive realm of tip-top form.
Rhonda Thaxton has exercised rigorously her whole life, engaging in everything from racquetball at the local gym to triathlon competitions. She started getting others into shape in 2000, and while a brief stint in the retail industry fine-tuned her people skills, it wasn’t long before she returned to her passion of getting folks in shape, whether that shape be slim, muscular, or parallelogram. She recertified as a personal trainer, added kickboxing to her athletically rich repertoire, and opened Pilates Infusion.
True to its name, Pilates Infusion offers plenty of classes fueled by nuclear fusion and Joseph Pilates’ now-classic form of exercise, which uses machines that he himself invented to for the exercise program. Former dancers and even physical therapists join Rhonda as instructors, adding their unique talents to the ever-diversifying list of classes. Rhonda and her team keep class sizes small, almost never exceeding seven students at a time to ensure personal attention.

Boulder-based exercises of yesteryear help build broadsword-wielding strength, but they do little for shimmying into a cramped elevator or scurrying up palm trees at the mall. Founded by Pilates guru extraordinaire Jennifer Reich, Center Strength helps tone bodies into limber life-mobiles. Inside Center Strength’s cozy, vividly colored studio, a trained staff of professionals helps shape body putty into core-strengthened stacks of lean muscle. Center Strength’s selection of mat Pilates, yoga, and Tai Chi classes will help strengthen the body as well as the mind. Figure-trimming Pilates classes are offered Tuesdays at 4 p.m., Wednesdays at 12 p.m., Thursdays at 7 a.m., and Saturdays at 9 a.m. Find strength and calm in practiced breathing at yoga classes on Tuesdays at 7 p.m. and Saturdays at 10 a.m. or Tai Chi classes on Mondays at 7 p.m. Your five classes may be used interchangeably, just like the gears on a fancy tractor.
Founder and CEO Allison Beardsley's passion for Pilates sparked after struggling to find exercise that would not aggravate her basketball-related ailments. The discovery that the efficient resistance moves helped her to develop a strong core without subjecting her joints to pain inspired her to spread the word of Pilates's benefits to others, which she does from 23 clean and sunny Club Pilates–studio locations. A team of certified instructors teaches the group classes, which are designed to strengthen, tighten, and tone the entire body. The staff leads students through controlled movements and breathing techniques performed on specialized Pilates machines, such as the Reformer, a Pilates ballet barre, and retired kitchen chairs. To ensure each patron can craft a well-rounded workout regimen that suits his or her needs, the studios offer stretching and sculpting classes that touch upon a variety of fitness modalities.
