When Joseph Pilates first developed his fitness system, he worked with bedridden patients, removing their beds’ bedsprings and attaching those springs to the walls. In order to build their core strength, he encouraged them to push against the coils. At Align Pilates, owner Loralee Stephens carries on Pilates’s tradition with her own array of nontraditional fitness equipment. Her studio’s Pilates reformers, the modern incarnation of Pilates’s bedsprings, provide resistance for full-body toning exercises. Straps hang from the studio’s ceiling, which students use for airborne pushups, sit-ups, and stretches in TRX suspension classes, rather than just for elaborately hanging up their coats. Even during more stripped-down sessions with only a mat for equipment, Stephens and her team fulfill Pilates’s mission of strengthening cores and building long, lean muscle.
