Pop Physique founder and former professional ballerina Jennifer Williams blended her dance expertise and Pilates certification to create barre-based sessions in body toning. The Costa Mesa location’s schedule overflows with more than 25 weekly sessions of Pop Sculpt, the studio’s signature class, in which ballet moves coalesce with Pilates and gentle weight training. During each one-hour course, students repeat a series of movements designed to strengthen the body, shape the core, and foster enough flexibility to gain admittance into the most exclusive of rubber-band balls. Each session can stoke calorie-torching, and long-term practice often endows participants with pristine posture and tightened abs. While the studio supplies patrons with the necessary eco mats, exercise balls, and weights necessary for each session, class attendees should be sure to wear fitted exercise clothes and socks or their most breathable pair of footisie pajamas.
At the end of a fruitful career that led her from the Cincinnati Ballet to the Sacramento Ballet, Jennifer Williams funneled her dance savvy into creating the barre-inspired exercise system taught at Pop Physique, a 2013 CityVoter finalist for Best Gym. Her fleet of handpicked and personally trained instructors pairs graceful ballet moves with other low-impact exercises in order to chisel cores without injuring muscles. Deep stretches further preserve tendons and leave each student more relaxed than a tortoise moseying past a state patrolman with a radar gun. Sessions run multiple times a day, seven days a week at an expanding network of SoCal locations. The roomy studios are lined with sprung dance floors and design accents that lend each location a distinct personality and a chance to forget its past as a storage room for defective food processors.
