Functional Strength Pilates’s dedicated instructors teach and continue their physical educations as a means to pursue their true passion for Pilates. The exercise system, designed by fitness guru Joseph Pilates, bolsters the core postural muscles that keep the spine and body uprightly aligned. Both mat and equipment Pilates class styles revolve around concentrated, precise movements that pair with deep breathing, much like cracking an underwater safe. Yoga classes are also valid as a part of the center’s mat-class offerings.
Pilates equipment classes, aided by Reformer machines and jump boards, facilitate smoother movements and intensify strength and flexibility training as exercisers sit or lay atop the equipment. Regardless of the style, Functional Strength Pilates’s small classes allow for ample instructor attention, ensuring exercisers engage the proper muscles and tendons don’t lose their focus and start passing notes to one another.

Functional Strength Pilates
Dancer, teacher, lawyer, salesperson. These were the titles held by Functional Strength Pilates’s staff before they ditched their day jobs to pursue their passion for the more-than-80-year-old practice. Out of two Denver–area locations they teach traditional Pilates, which shows students how to breathe mindfully while aligning their spines to strengthen their cores. Continued practice can help students to decompress their joints so they can move more fluidly than the Vitruvian man doing the backstroke. The exercise also integrates well with rehabilitation regimens, which explains why the staff works closely with area physical therapists, orthopedic doctors, and chiropractors and their patients. Each of the two studios bolsters the Pilates curriculum with different supplemental practices—personal training at the Lone Tree location and yoga classes in Castle Rock.
