Pilates Plus Pacific Beach
A team of passionate instructors—which earned its business CityVoter's 2011 award for Best Pilates Studio—expands Pilates' scope to include more muscle groups than just the core. To do this, the team combines traditional Pilates exercises with strength and cardiovascular training to create invigorating workouts for the entire body. During each class, teachers help students tone core and limb muscles with specialized equipment such as the Proformer, which uses a system of pulleys and spring resistance to bolster strength. To boost sweat-session efforts, they encourage a calorie-burning pace by blaring energetic music and replacing all water fountains with pixy-stick stations. Because their low-impact sessions focus on achieving proper form and minimizing the risk of injury, they push students of all skill levels to complete the rigorous workouts despite their intensity.
