Voted Best Pilates Studio in the Union-Tribune ’s 2011 San Diego’s Best Awards, Propel Pilates & Fitness leads a lineup of Pilates classes that fortify core muscles, promote flexibility, and teach students about healthy movement and posture. Expert trainers learn each client’s name during Reformer sessions, where spring-powered Allegro Tower of Power Reformers use resistance to transform bodies into strong, lean movement machines or beautifully chiseled marble statues. Ideal for students of all skill sets, Reformer exercises can be modified to accommodate specific goals and injuries, and low-impact movements relax minds and engender sweat with tools such as wunda chairs, BOSU balls, and resistance bands. In addition to bolstering stamina and joint mobility, Reformer classes can help improve athletic performance and prevent osteoporosis.
