Contraptions invented by Joseph Pilates—including Reformers, Wunda Chairs, and the Trapeze Table—work core muscles. Owner Tiffany Crosswhite uses the ballet barre she often trained with as a dancer to add leg-enhancing exercises to the core-sculpting workout of Mat Pilates. Both class varieties, which usually last one hour and take place in the morning and evening, occur seven days a week. See the full schedule.
Poise & Strength Pilates
Tiffany Crosswhite’s journey toward becoming a Pilates instructor began, oddly enough, at the Ice Capades, where the lights, music, and graceful glides inspired her to pursue a career as a professional ice skater. As this career progressed, she eventually became a coach for young skaters, constantly hunting for a form of exercise that would help them grow stronger without harming their developing bodies. Thanks to a gift certificate given to her by her mother, Tiffany discovered Pilates and quickly fell in love with the low-impact, powerful-results exercise. In fact, she was so head over heels that she opened her own studio.
Beneath a fun, globular chandelier, Tiffany infuses her Pilates routines with conditioning exercises drawn from her years of figure-skating training. She, along with her team of passionate instructors, help students tighten core muscles using mat exercises and the fleet of Pilates machines that line the walls, which include Reformers, Wunda Chairs, and bionic replicas of Joseph Pilates himself.
