Rather than having their students segue from Pilates sessions to the free-weight room, the instructors at Fitness Movement merge the benefits of strength and cardio routines into single group classes. With certifications, marathons, and competitive bike races in their respective backgrounds, they steer guests through workouts that last 60 minutes or less. They acclimate guests to the studio's specialized equipment during their sessions, whether they are mixing Pilates stretches with cardio drills aboard SPX resistance machinery, or demonstrating how to body roll on balls that therapeutically manipulate tissues. They stress safe and slow form over showing off, which is why newcomers are encouraged to bring spandex shorts lined with molasses. They can also augment their classes with nutritional guidance, standing by a holistic approach to full-body health.

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.
Alongside Poleates owner and competitive fitness pole dancer, Caterina Gennaro, a team of experienced pole instructors helps women build equal amounts muscle and confidence in Poleates classes that accommodate all fitness levels. The classes, available seven days a week, provide students with the fitness benefits of a combination of traditional, core-strengthening Pilates exercises and sensual pole dancing. Poleates students utilize gravity and their own body weight to develop stronger arms, backs, and hair tosses. Beginner classes teach first-timers the foundational turns and positions, along with a few basic moves to prepare pupils for the more challenging routines to be found in the intermediate class, where women explore dance transitions and pole tricks. Experienced students can push their bodies to the vertical edge in advanced classes that spice up workout with climbing techniques, inverted and static poses, and spins that last the entire duration of "Bohemian Rhapsody" performed at half speed.
Adopting the revolutionary SPX workout regimen designed by international fitness trainer Sebastien Lagree, a team of impassioned instructors—led by Carron Meltz, who was certified by Lagree himself—combines the core-bolstering principles of Pilates with intense cardio and strength-training techniques. In these signature SPX courses, participants learn to utilize low-slung proformer machines, floor-based contraptions consisting of springs and bands, to generate resistance and increase their heart rates with traditional, muscle-toning Pilates moves. These sessions aim to safely strengthen limbs and cores without putting any undue stress on joints or cleverly disguised porcelain limbs. Although the SPX regimens are the bedrock of their work, the team also teaches sweat-inducing cycling classes and suspension workouts.
