Guests can join experienced instructors to take advantage of the functional conditioning of kettle bells, find inner sultriness with urban striptease aerobics, or carve out cut cores with traditional mat Pilates. Legs and arms transform into high achievers in 101 and honors classes, which define limbs with weights, resistance bands, and plyometrics, and the high-energy, Latin-influenced choreography of Zumba results in head-turning tone and eye-catching confidence boosts.

Wellness is about more than just exercise. That's why Pilates on 3rd offers a wide array of classes to reduce stress and flexibility while toning the physique. Clients may tackle a high-energy Zumba or mat Pilates workout or request a personalized one-on-one training with Pilates reformer technology, which uses spring-and-pulley resistance to isolate and tone specific areas of the body. Pilates on 3rd also offers barre classes, which sculpt muscles into curves of chiseled excellence.
IM=X Pilates' signature workout, IM=X, which is short for Integrated Movement Xercize, combines strength-training and cardio exercises for a high-energy session profiled in Fitness Magazine, Mademoiselle, and the New York Times. The IM=X schedule of classes includes Pilates floor sessions, which walk students through traditional, body-weight-based Pilates exercises that rely on balance and precise muscle control to build strength and improve three-legged-race times. True to the IM=X formula, instructors amp up the effectiveness of Pilates moves by integrating special equipment such as the IM=X ring and Body Bar. During yoga classes, students follow along with instructors, stabilizing their core and limbs through a series of challenging poses and balance-fortifying transitions to hone focus and muscle tone. Indoor-cycling students swing a leg over spoked steeds for a structured, instructor-led workout where cyclists can forge rock-solid cardiovascular health while tailoring intensity to accommodate their own fitness and cycling experience levels.
