BodyPure Studio owner Tina Boos, who’s accrued more than two decades of fitness-industry know-how, centers BodyPure Studio around a medley of Pilates, body-sculpting, and cardio classes. Earning her Pilates certification has enabled her to stock the studio with every available apparatus, ranging from mats to the Reformer, Wunda Chair, Cadillac, and Ladder Barrel—the latter of which should only be reserved by registered Donkey Kongs. As a barre instructor, Boos leads the studio's signature BodyPure class, a fluid workout for limbs and seats that also levels out tummies. Each of her fellow instructors upholds her fitness expertise, possessing at least one certification in Pilates, barre, or group fitness.
BodyPure's combination of professional tutelage and state-of-the-art equipment earned it a top-five spot among CityVoter finalists for Detroit's Best Pilates Studio of 2011. Its facility houses workout rooms for both group and private training sessions.
