PILATES

“Pilates is designed to give you suppleness, natural grace, and skill that will be unmistakably reflected in the way you walk, in the way you play, and in the way you work.” - Joseph Pilates

ABOUT PILATES AT HBC

Improved core strength, flexibility, balance, coordination, and weight loss! A fitness program that includes Pilates can help you to reach your health and fitness goals.

Build Core Strength

Pilates goes beyond surface muscles and targets the deep muscles of the abdominals and lower back. A strong core is the key ingredient to improved posture, balance, athletic performance and a healthy back.

Increase Flexibility

Pilates helps to make the spine more supple, and flexibility throughout the body can increase. Circulation is improved and postural alignment is restored helping to build long, lean and flexible muscles.

Improves Balance and Coordination

Regular Pilates practice is one of the best ways to maintain healthy joint mobility. Pilates students develop more balanced, streamlined muscles which directly relates to coordination and balance, as well as fewer injuries. Pilates builds confidence and motivates you to perform other activities better!

Promotes Weight Loss

Pilates builds long, lean muscles. Building muscles, can help to improve metabolism and help you to reach your weight loss goals. Anxiety and stress are often reduced through practicing Pilates which can help to make healthier lifestyle choices and gain greater self esteem.

Reformer or Mat – Which is best for you?

Harbor Bay Club offers group Mat Classes, Small Group Reformer classes, and Private Training throughout the week.

We recommend that you try both! They are equally effective and students who participate in both Mat and Reformer classes find that their work on the Reformer enhances their Mat practice and vice versa.
