About IM=X Pilates
Dr. Magwood is certified by the ICPA in prenatal wellness care and meets ACOG guidelines. Although it sounds like an equation dreamed up by a sedentary scientist, IM=X stands for something that’s anything but sedentary: Integrated Movement eXercise. In its 16 years of existence, this fitness method has drawn the attention of media outlets such as Shape, Self, and the New York Times. The program’s concept stemmed from founder Elyse McNergney’s Pilates certifications, MA in movement science, and EdM in exercise physiology from Columbia University.
Elyse devised a method for teaching students how to stabilize their core-muscle groups while keeping the spine elongated and safe during the workout. The outcome she helps clients achieve is a decompressed spine, better posture, and the ability to provide piggyback rides for 12 toddlers at a time. Her program has also been used to rehabilitate professional athletes, dancers, and patients suffering from chronic pain.
Operating from within the Pure Balance Center, the intimate workout space is filled with IM=X reformer machines. A mural of Lake Louise in Alberta, Canada, gazes on serenely as students perform workouts inspired by not only Pilates but yoga, cycling, cardio, and ballet barre.
