The Pilates Body sets limbs to lengthening with multiple classes per week that test core strength and concentration in a open and modern space. Sample sessions of mat Pilates, designed to increase strength, flexibility, and tone, or take stretches to a heady new echelon with the thermostat cranked during hot Pilates. The swinging Zumba classes provide fat cells with Latin background tunes as they are danced into oblivion, and the men's conditioning class allows men and their hairy-chested mats to reap the benefits of Pilates in a testosterone-rich environment. The staff's six highly trained instructors provide the guidance needed to renovate soul digs from a tackily wallpapered waiting room to a suavely painted sanctuary. Both morning and evening classes are available, providing multiple opportunities to get the energized feeling only exercise and jet-powered clogs can provide. All mats and other equipment are provided, but reservations are required as class size is limited to 12–15 people.
