Rachel Rettman draws upon her personal background and experience to help students of all levels build core strength, gain cardiovascular benefits, and improve range of motion with high-intensity Pilates formats. Mat classes find groups of around 10 fitness-seekers flexing and extending limbs in a 1,100-square-foot studio furnished with glossy wood floors, full-length mirrors, a breezy bay window, and bathrooms with changing facilities. Alternatively, Reformer classes invite no more than four trainees to strap into the time-tested apparatuses, whose adjustable pulleys, springs, and steam-powered propellers strengthen core muscles and stretch out limbs.
