Sunlight streams into Urbanfront Pilates through the large, second-story windows, reflects off mirrors that cover entire walls, and illuminates hardworking exercisers tightening core muscles. The purple and green studio is home to eight different group classes, led by expert instructors who believe that a strong core is the foundation for full-body health. They walk customers through how to tighten tummies with various pieces of equipment, such as the Tower class's spring-resistance apparatuses or the Xtend class's ballet barre. In mat classes, students use only body resistance and mental images of the Vitruvian Man's hot cousin to aid in chiseling physiques. Dedicated to fostering community within the studio, Urbanfront Pilates hosts teacher training by Power Pilates–trained professionals who help pupils transform their passion into a livelihood.
