ImPower Pilates combines traditional Pilates—the endurance- and repetition-based core-building exercise pioneered by Joseph Pilates—with tailored training equipment capable of increasing strength, flexibility, and balance. The stripped-down mat class, which includes mat rental, leads floor-bound bodies through multiple abbreviated reps of flowing movement, emphasizing proper biomechanical alignment. Post mat class, students will confidently saunter out with a stronger core, leaner body mass, and improved posture for impromptu family portraits. The four-person Tower classes let students boldly outstretch their resistance-riddled frenemies with the wall unit. With each spring-loaded repetition, instructors and their followers work rarely used muscles, pushing the limits of their perseverance and upping the chances of nabbing sidewalk change without breaking stride. Those who take the Tower class should have Pilates-mat or Pilates-equipment training experience. ImPower also lets budding core captains try Pilates equipment workouts through the Reformer and Chair classes. Combining strength training, stretching techniques, and balance maintenance, the Pilates Reformer is an agile assemblage of gears, springs, straps, and pulleys that serves as a crucible of core strengthening. Under the expert guise of ImPower’s muscle mediators, users will learn how the Reformer can be elegantly employed to perform more than 100 different fitness exercises, such as arm circles, leg lifts, mermaid stretches, elephant lifts, and jaguar jingles.

There are six essential ingredients that compose each of Complete Body fitness programs: strength, cardio, flexibility, meditation, nutrition, and rest. Founder Alex Reznik is the mind behind this philosophy. In 1995, he founded the company believing that, if given the opportunity, most people would seek to better their health. Soon thereafter, he was proven right by both rising membership numbers and favorable media attention, including articles in Time Out New York and the New York Times.
Complete Body has now expanded to three locations. At each studio, expert trainers adhere to Mr. Reznik's principles, blending Eastern and Western techniques during classes such as yoga, boot camps, and spinning. Complete Body also hosts cross-training classes, which are designed to burn fat, build strength, and improve flexibility by focusing on six elements: strength, cardio, flexibility, meditation, nutrition, and rest. They even venture outside to work with clients in their homes. But the staff knows that wellness is not all about sweat. At onsite spas, massage therapists work tense muscles and aestheticians refresh skin with facials. Physical therapists can help to rehabilitate clients following injuries, calling upon various training methods in their arsenal.
