While exercise enthusiasts, celebrities, and athletes have practiced Joseph Pilates' unique style of controlled movements since the 1920s, it wasn’t until recently that studios such as The Pilates Experience brought the workout down from the mountain. After introducing guests to the specialized machines, including the Reformer, Tower, Cadillac, and ladder barrels, instructors lead exercises that use bodyweight as resistance. To help students perform the moves correctly, they cap the machine-based classes at six people and move from station to station handing out tips on proper alignment. Other classes include a Pilates-infused yoga class, heart-pumping indoor-cycling sessions, and muscle-toning total-body circuit training.

Amid its fully equipped studio of Peak Pilates equipment, Body Reformers sculpts muscles throughout the body while improving posture, mental awareness, and overall well-being. Feeble backs and sheepish hips benefit from the Pilates methodology, which focuses on strengthening muscles without manually pumping ounces of iron or hoisting mule after mule above one's head. During the one-hour mat classes, fully certified Pilates instructors guide classes of 12 students through exercises that flatten abdominals, tighten thighs, lift buttocks, and sharpen dull shoulder blades. The private reformer lesson further refines forms with one-on-one instruction.
