IM=X Pilates Studio caters to fitness fanatics and common citizens alike with classes that update the classic Pilates workout by fusing muscle-toning exercises with strength and cardiovascular training. The studio’s schedule allows students to explore mat and machine-based Pilates styles, including classes where pupils train on patented IM=X Reformer machines, ultramodern exercise boards that utilize a system of levers and pulleys to ramp up resistance for powerful workouts and an immersive introduction to the world of pyramid construction. Each of the Reformer class sessions focuses on a different area and technique, such as upper-body bulking, abdomen aggrandizing, or tennis-shoulder superstructuring. Along with the Reformer Pilates classes, students get a DVD, which allows them to continue Pilates practice from the comfort of their home or nearest television-repair shop.
Private Pilates training partners attendees with one of the studio’s NASA-approved muscle mavens for an individualized fitness foray. Tailoring the difficulty to the student’s skills, abilities, and goals, instructors will either ease limbs into the Pilates method or strengthen muscles with invigorating exercises that bolster stamina and flexibility.
IM=X Pilates grew from the seeds of Elyse McNergney’s experience: her master’s degrees in movement science and exercise physiology, her certifications in the Pilates method and the Alexander Technique, and her experience rehabilitating athletes who thought they could tackle a goal post. Drawing from this knowledge, she devised a series of innovative resistance and cardio workouts that challenge the body while still strengthening the core in traditional Pilates fashion. This method has been lauded by many press outlets, including Self magazine, which says it will “strengthen the muscles surrounding your hips and lower spine . . . probably the most important thing you can do to make your stomach look flatter.” Alongside its Pilates focus, the studio also hosts sessions inspired by yoga, ballet barre, and indoor cycling.
