Each of Pilates of Amelia’s staff members draws on more than 600 hours of training to lead classes of no more than six students through core-conditioning and therapeutic workouts in a fully equipped studio. Students stretch skyward using a full tower setup during the beginner and intermediate one-hour group mat classes. In private sessions, Pilateers spend an hour of one-on-one time with an experienced instructor, who designs a training regimen for each client so that students don’t have to rely on streetwise medicine balls with Cockney accents for their exercise advice. Private sessions make use of Pilates of Amelia’s extensive selection of equipment, which includes wunda chairs and stability balls. Students can also lunge and twist on the reformer, a contraption consisting of a sliding platform, springs, and pulleys that can accommodate more types of exercise than a mountain bike with a built-in weight bench. Consult the schedule for beginner group class times. Individual classes can be scheduled by preference, based on the availability of an instructor.
