Corinna Cosentino first discovered Pilates as a young dancer, seeking a way to simultaneously build her strength and flexibility. She fell in love with the distinctive exercise regimen and in 1998 decided to earn her Pilates certification. She then continued her studies in Chicago under the guidance of teachers who studied directly under Joseph and Clara Pilates, honing her core-building techniques and mastering Joseph's secret handshakes.
After several years spent teaching in Chicago, Cosentino opened her own studio, which boasts unobstructed space and pale hardwood floors speckled with Pilates reformers, towers, and chairs. She also provides supportive props for students to use during mat-based classes.
Function. That's what CrossFit is all about. And that's what got Shaun and Jenna Tieman so hooked on the method that they decided to open Hoosier CrossFit. During classes, CrossFit's system of constantly varied movements are performed at a high intensity. Because the movements are functional, they increase agility, speed, and power while readying participants for all manner of physical activity. Classes rely on tools such as gymnastics rings and bumper plates instead of machines, ensuring that the body is doing all the work. To initiate the uninitiated, instructors start all beginners out with On-Ramp classes, which familiarize exercisers with CrossFit basics.
