Pilates Plus has brought the SPX fitness class's high-intensity blend of traditional Pilates and modern weight training to media outlets from the TV Guide channel to Shape magazine. At each 40- to 55-minute group session, Pilates pros show students how to cultivate strength, stamina, and prize-winning roses with a ProFormer machine, which works upper- and lower-body muscles through a system of springs and pulleys. Although old-school routines such as pushups and lunges tone the body, support from the ProFormer machine keeps pressure off the joints and spine so elbows don't go on strike in the middle of putting a warthog in a headlock. The Pilates component of the workout lengthens and enhances posture while keeping heart rates up and burning calories.
Although many of The Bar Method's exercises take place at the ballet bar, the program is only partially inspired by the long, lean musculature of ballet dancers. Created by Burr Leonard, the workouts also incorporate the brief, fat-burning bursts of activity known as interval training and the muscle-shaping techniques of isometrics. Combine all this with the science of physical therapy, and you get The Bar Method: an intense yet safely designed approach to exercise meant to cinch the silhouette, increase muscle definition, and boost energy all day long. Sessions introduce beginners to basics, such as maintaining good form and refraining from breaking out into Swan Lake choreography.

The only fitness pole-dancing studio in Ventura County, Poleates merges pole dance and Pilates techniques into one vigorous, empowering total-body workout. Each 90-minute shimmy session focuses on new moves and routines in addition to Pilates mat basics, helping to craft resilient upper and lower bodies and build solid cores capable of crunching coal into more coal. Greenhorn pole charmers can opt for a beginner class to gather the strutting, turning, and positioning basics, while more experienced dancers can practice dance transitions in the beginner/intermediate sessions. Pole aficionados ready to dazzle spectators with their master moves can sashay into the advanced class.
There's definitely a barre in Barre 101's spacious studio, but students won't always be lined up at it. The studio's 60-minute, heart-pumping classes also incorporate mat exercises and cardio movements, ensuring that students blast calories while toning the entire body. For those who already know the barre choreography in their sleep, Level 2 classes are available for even more intense workouts.
