Choose from Three Options
- $43 for four Pilates Reformer classes (up to a $116 value)
- $69 for eight Pilates Reformer classes (up to a $202 value)
- $139 for a six-week TRX-and-Pilates program (up to a $321 value)
During Pilates Reformer classes, instructors guide up to six students through focused stretches and bends, utilizing the Reformer machines’ springs and sliding platforms to add resistance. Sessions for beginners up to advanced practitioners prioritize sound form over speed, and specialized classes hone in on different goals.
Alternatively, a six-week SuperFit program pairs mat Pilates with TRX suspension training. Clients meet three times per week for 60-minute classes. During the first half of each class, TRX cords support limbs or offer leverage as students work to lift their own body weight. The time-efficient system helps clients build their core and improve stability and balance while harnessing the muscle-toning properties of resistance strength training. The second half consists of Pilates maneuvers that continue to strengthen the core as well as increase flexibility and mobility.

The Body Center
The instructors at The Body Center don't view Pilates as a simple exercise trend—instead, they conduct classes as interactive seminars on human anatomy. They teach clients how to train certain muscle groups by identifying and coaxing them through specific movement patterns designed to increase strength and flexibility at the same time. Ultimately, they try to instill in their students an enhanced sense of bodily awareness, one that informs walks down the street just as much as it does stretches on the mat.
Because physiques differ depending on build, lifestyle, and how often they were pinched as babies, The Body Center's curriculum is appropriately broad. Class themes range from Reformer and mat Pilates to SCALES and BOSU Core fitness. Beginners derive comfort from the company of other trainees, while intermediate and advanced classes pursue communal challenges. Specialized lessons can focus on specific body parts, sports performance, or the use of props, and modifications throughout every course cater to individual fitness levels.
The staff keeps classes small in the interest of personalization. Mat classes accept up to 10 students, and Reformer classes won't admit more than 6. Private and duet sessions allow for even more focused attention, as instructors won't be distracted by the loud popping of several emerging six-packs.
