In the 50-minute SPX class, students perform core-strength building workouts using the Megaformer, which uses an expedient blend of Pilates and resistance training to strengthen joints and improve flexibility. The RealRyder cycle has an articulate frame that moves with the rider for dynamic workouts that mimic functional movement. The Core 30/30 class gives students a combination of both workouts.
Though Core Studio's workouts blend elements of Pilates, resistance-training, and strength-training, the company's entire program has three core methods: SPX fitness, Core Barre, and RealRyder indoor cycling. Each of the studio's instructors are masters of both. The Core SPX workout has a specific science designed to work muscles toward their limits and the heart toward victory. Armed with this knowledge, the instructors motivate clients to sweat through flexibility and core-strength-enhancing workouts in four classes: Core SPX, Core Barre, Core Cycle, and Core 30/30, a blend of SPX and Cycle. SPX workouts use the Megaformer, a state-of-the-art Pilates reformer that relies on spring resistance, whereas Cycle classes use the RealRyder indoor cycle—a stationary bike that isn't actually stationary. As it turns and tilts with riders, mimicking the motions of a real bike ride, the machine encourages functional movements, such as pedaling faster to escape a pack of invisible wolves.
