Poway Pilates students follow experienced instructors through challenging routines during machine-based Pilates classes that work to tone muscles throughout the body. Instructors cap the attendance of signature Reformer classes at eight students, ensuring instructors have the opportunity to give attendees of all skill levels personalized verbal directions and hands-on postural modifications throughout the workout. During classes, students learn to use the signature Pilates Reformer, an apparatus that counteracts pupils’ every smoothly controlled exercise with gentle spring resistance, adding muscle-toning benefit. Much like they would in a game of human Tetris, on the Reformer students alternate between kneeling, prone, and standing postures. By increasing the pace and intensity as the session continues, the instructors can also ensure an invigorating cardiovascular workout, which energizes attendees better than an IV bag of espresso.
Although Poway Pilates offers discounted rates for students online, today’s Groupon still represents the best deal available.
Poway Pilates owner and head instructor Jennifer Richards and her team of Pilates Method Association-certified staff chisel their clients into shape using the Stott Pilates technique. The style, which blends principles of sports medicine with physical therapy and modern fitness, works to strengthen specific joints at the same time as the whole body—creating long, lean muscles and improving overall stability.
Inside the 1,600-square foot studio, walls painted in soothing earth tones provide a pleasant contrast from rows and racks of sweat-inducing Stott Pilates gear. Private and group sessions guide guests through core-strengthening Pilates mat and reformer exercises, during which instructors use verbal cues to tell participants when to change positions. Other sessions combine the basics with boot-camp, barre, and kettlebell workouts.
