The fitness experts at Coreworks Fitness, a Balanced Body University training center, guide benders and stretchers in strengthening cores and loosening limbs with a variety of mat and machine-based training. A team of certified instructors indoctrinate students with a schedule of courses catering to all fitness levels. Practitioners dipping their toes into uncharted waters may tread into the mat-based Pilates 1 class, in which they’ll acquire the basics of alignment, breath, and muscle control. Pilates 2 furthers the floor education by incorporating small props and backward crab walking, and practitioners can also explore the functions of Pilates machines in a reformer class. The spring-loaded reformer contraptions utilize natural resistance to tone muscles with limited strain on the tendons, ligaments, and webbed toes.
After absorbing core Pilates principles from Stott & Balanced Body, head instructor Fran gathered a crew of yoga, Pilates, and ACE–certified fitness masters to oversee the classes at Coreworks Fitness. Fran and her staff run two levels of mat classes, as well as two levels of reformer classes in a separate studio dedicated to the foundational apparatus. Students may also stretch their abilities on more advanced apparatuses, including the CoreAlign, which heightens the cardiovascular element of Pilates, as well as improves posture and balance. Coreworks Fitness is also an authorized Balanced Body University training center. The studio's academy equips aspiring instructors with pedagogical techniques and even extends its kinesthetic expertise to the performing arts, with body-aligning workshops for Irish dance instructors.
