What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
Smaller group classes. Plus, I combine postural therapy corrective exercises with Pilates for my clients to see and get more effective results.
Exercise is challenging. How do you keep clients motivated and engaged?
Understanding what their internal or external motivators are. I do a thorough health screening at the first session to understand their personal goals, and make sure we revisit them every four weeks.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
My passion is helping people especially those with conditions or injuries. This is why I have kept my studio intimate so that my clients get the most attention at every visit.
What do you love most about your job?
I love building relationships with people everyday, and seeing them get stronger at each session. It puts a smile on my face when my clients realize how much they have accomplished since day one.
Focused on the connection between mental and physical wellness, the instructors at Pilates Sports and Fitness lead fitness classes small enough to focus on each individual, whether they're recovering from an injury or simply augmenting a healthier lifestyle with Pilates. During Pilates reformer and mat classes, participants use specially-designed equipment to help increase movement awareness, boost energy, and engage in a total-body aerobic workout. The studio also offers barre classes, TRX suspension, Zumba, and Yamuna body rolling.
It’s apparent to anyone who watches ballet that female dancers must be extremely light. After all, they often have to be swept across the stage and effortlessly lifted into the air, and their steps must be as silent as a sneeze at the opera. Yet, as slender as ballet dancers are, they still possess bodies that look as if they were chiseled out of marble. That dancer look—a slim body with long, lean muscles—is what barre3 helps its clients achieve with a combination of ballet-barre work, yoga, and Pilates.
At locations across the country, barre3’s instructors use a three-step process that first focuses on deeply exercising muscles using isometric holds. The workout then elevates heart rate with low-impact movements before cooling down the body with a recovery stretch that also helps elongate body lines.
The workout has proved to be so effective that it has received multiple press mentions, including in the Huffington Post and In Style magazine, and it has even drawn in body-conscious celebrities such as Madonna. Mothers in particular flock to barre3’s classes, as many locations offer on-site childcare.
Don't call Power Train Yoga a yoga studio. It's not. It's a "yogacentric" group fitness center. All of the classes here—from power barre to kettlebells, to barefoot bootcamp and ropes.—incorporate yoga postures in an effort to minimize injuries and boost balance and flexibility. Of course, there are also some completely yoga-centric classes, too, such as warm vinyasa sessions and a classic hot yoga class. Hot Pilates and TRX classes are also available; no matter the class, students will enjoy the studio's climate-control system. It continuously monitors temperature, humidity, and carbon dioxide levels to keep the space space suitable for enhanced performance and good vibes.
The award-winning re-Barre Studio combines precise muscle sculpting and stretching with a ballet barre, resistance bands, weighted balls, and free weights. The re-Barre method produces long, lean, and dancer-like muscles with low-impact and fat-burning moves designed to efficiently build strength and flexibility. At this studio, students can take original re-Barre classes with certified instructors, as well as dance away calories in energetic Zumba classes. BUTI yoga is a mix of tribal dance, hip hop, HIIT & vinyasa yoga. Every session is different, highly focused, and works to keep bodies challenged while improving postures and helping to trim waistlines.
