Pendleton’s mixed-level classes involve Pilates fundamentals and floor exercises that employ mats or more-challenging balls to develop stability—and not challenging in the sense that they are full of helium and spider-crabs. Though some of the movements may be challenging, owner Stacy Sims and her experienced instructors will be there to help you perform to the best of your ability. Having used Pilates herself to transform from an unhealthy person into Pendleton's top trainer, Sims knows how to whip you into shape while maintaining a high level of motivation.
Pilates can re-establish the harmony that once existed between your mind and body before their bitter quarrel over whose turn it was to wash the dishes. You can buy up to two Groupons as gifts, so bring friends along to Pendleton Pilates and learn how to spell your favorite three-letter words with your bodies.

The instructors at Pendleton Pilates’ four locations teach 125 classes each week, showing students how to elongate and strengthen their muscles on mats, inflatable exercise balls, and the studio’s reformer machines. During each group or private session, instructors customize workouts that use a rotating selection of 500 core-focused movements developed by Joseph Pilates in 1945. Additional classes include sessions in which students use parallel ballet barres while performing Pilates exercises, as well as spinning classes at the Westchester location.
