Small Group Personal Training

As a personal trainer with a corrective exercise background I design each session to build the entire body strong within a deliberately crafted sequence of exercises.

Being in a small group format, I customize the exercises to the regular attending clients, knowing all injuries, limitations, and abilities. I guide you through an effective workout with lots of encouragement and guidance on your form.

Four Styles of Equipment Sessions

All Pilates Life Studio sessions are all levels, meaning you are welcome to attend any of our styles. Below provides a list of details distinguishing the styles so you can make the best choice for your success. Each successive style moves at a faster flowing pace.

Here at the studio you will be provided layers of movement for most of the exercises, so you can choose which layer feels best in your body. Each class is intelligently designed to create success in your movement.

It is highly recommended to stick with the style of class that matches your ability best.

Align

Rehabilitative classes move at a gentle pace. Quality of movement is stressed over quantity of repetitions. Perfect for those who:

  • have injuries and limitations that require a slow and gentle pace
  • want extra time changing positions between exercises
  • need more stretching periods
  • are beginners of a movement practice
  • will learn proper technique through pre-Pilates movements and a handful level 1 exercises

Refresh

Refresh classes move at an average pace, perfect for those who:

  • have injuries and limitations that require a moderate pace
  • want time changing positions between exercises
  • expect to be challenged at a pace appropriate for you
  • newer Pilates equipment participants learning the ropes
  • experienced participants hoping to feel "refreshed" after class
  • want to work on level 1 and a handful of level 2 Pilates exercises

Glow

Think a glowy flow, moving at a fairly consistent pace. Your whole body will be challenged from head to toe, and expect to be a little sweaty by the end of class. Perfect for those who:

  • want the perfect workout: challenged safety at your level of ability
  • know the equipment and can change your springs and settings
  • love a constant flowing pace (or doesn't mind moving slower, while others flow at a faster pace)
  • those with a good amount of consistent classes under your belt, plus intermediate to advanced practitioners wanting a great workout
  • may have a minor injury who know your limitations and will take the alternative exercises offered when necessary
  • want to work on level 1, level 2, and a handful of level 3 Pilates exercises

Sweat

Want a kick-butt sweat sesh? Then this is the class for you! This is a Glow level class that includes strategically placed cardio intervals keeping the intensity high the entire class. Perfect for those who:

  • have strength and endurance to handle the demanding exercises
  • know the equipment well and can change your spring and settings quickly
  • love fast transitions with little rest between exercises (or doesn't mind moving slower, while others flow at a faster pace)
  • want to be a sweaty puddle by the end of class
  • may have a minor injury who know your limitations and will take the alternative exercises offered when necessary
  • want to work on level 1, level 2, and a handful of level 3 Pilates exercises
