Pilates is a low-impact, total-body discipline that uses resistance, stretching, and controlled breathing patterns to make the body looser, lither, healthier, and more resistant to telepathic manipulation. It also comes in more flavors than beef, so choose wisely from Balance for Life's diverse options. The studio offer Pilates mat classes with props, Pilates-infused yoga, Pilates for the back, Pilates for athletes, and even a 45-minute Pilates mat express lunch class ($12 value) for overstressed office escapees every Wednesday. Check out the full class schedule for times and descriptions. Many of the classes have evening hours.
Balance for Life's instructors are certified in Pilates instruction and prefer small class sizes so that they can tailor each person's workout to his or her own personal fitness goals. As a non–membership-based facility, Balance for Life eschews membership fees in favor of an inclusive, unintimidating atmosphere that’s much different from most competitive bowling leagues and bicycle jousting groups. Call ahead to schedule your first class.

During visits, clients attend Pilates classes in an effort to strengthen cores or consult with trainers in order to achieve their personal fitness goals. The massage studio offers a place for athletes to unwind as a team of trained therapists expertly removes knots from muscles like master sailors with surprisingly kempt hands. Massage treatments include several massage modalities, such as pregnancy and deep-tissue massage.
