InTone Pilates' certified instructors guide students through choreographed exercise routines that stretch and strengthen bodies' cores. Muscle-molding gurus lead Pilates mat classes, shepherding bodies through flexibility-building and posture-improving maneuvers performed atop a mat in InTone's modern, loft-style studio flooded with natural light. Students in the group Pilates reformer classes use specially designed reformer machines to boost muscle building and fortify their bodies' powerhouse—the abdomen, lower back, buttocks, and Spandex-lint collecting bellybutton. In groups of up to six, students follow the lead of special Pilates reformer instructors to achieve maximum physique tightening and mental relaxation. Although InTone's plush studio stocks towels and water, students should bring their own mats, come dressed in comfortable gym clothes, and leave shoes and lobstered gauntlets outside the Pilates studio.
Sunlight spills through the windows of InTone Pilates, pushing through lush plants to warm students' muscles as they bend and stretch. Here, instructors teach fitness as a means to transform the body, mind, and spirit, stressing the value of relaxation as much as exertion. Each instructor designs one-on-one workouts and small-group routines, tailoring isometric exercises to participants’ needs as they demonstrate how to use specialized equipment such as Pilates Reformers, towers, and trapezes. During classes, the teachers walk their pupils through efficient, low-impact moves to target the abs and back, helping students build enough strength and balance to bench-press a hippo while walking a tightrope.
