Praised by the likes of New York magazine and Men’s Fitness for his scientific approach to fitness, Beyond Pilates’s master instructor and studio owner, Ed Morand, whips students into shape with customizable mat- and machine-based Pilates workouts. Beyond Pilates incorporates muscle activation techniques to address muscle imbalances from poor posture, helping ease musculoskeletal pain, assisting with injury recovery, and achieving fitness goals. During group mat Pilates classes, able instructors mix traditional and progressive Pilates moves, walking students through small, muscle-isolating exercises to tone muscles from head to toe. With regular practice, mat Pilates exercises can help improve posture and make students’ daily tasks easier, including walking, sitting, and tripping rollerbladers. Students climb aboard specialized Pilates machines during Reformer classes, where the apparatuses’ springs and pulleys provide resistance to each traditional Pilates move for extra muscle-toning benefit. For more personalized instruction, clients may opt for one-on-one sessions with an encouraging trainer who can design regimens to address specific needs and goals.
