So what IS the difference between doing Pilates and doing strength training with dumbbells and gym equipment? One big difference is the emphasis on the spine,shoulder girdle, and pelvis in pilates, with the emphasis on limbs being secondary.
In our Pilates Reformer classes in Mission Valley, we always begin with an assessment of posture and body alignment. We work both sides of the body to even out left to right imbalances, and as we do so, we create greater strength and flexibility simultaneously.
Joseph Pilates was an insightful master of this which is why the Pilates technique has experienced longevity of over 100 years.
Just in case you hadn't noticed, men and women are different! That becomes clear in the pilates room of our San Diego studio. Men in general are less flexible, have a thicker back, and are more bulky. They tend to be tight, especially through hips, spine, hamstrings, pecs, upper traps. They tend to have a forward head posture more than women.
Ta-DA! Enter Pilates! In each of our customized pilates reformer classes, we focus on all of this! Men constantly comment how stretched out they feel as a result of this coaching.
Knowing the male propensity for loving killer strength training, we also offer a portion of the class on our TRX equipment. Be warned tho, we choose the TRX exercises great for your corestrength, but also flexibility. Hmmm..can't be that bad, can it? Come on in, guys!
Suspended TRX planks are a favorite exercise in our San Diego pilates studio. There are many versions of them, all of which result in a killer workout!
Combined with flexibility training in our Pilates Reformer classes, you will see some awesome changes in your body quickly!
As with all our classes, we put you in a group which matches your fitness level and goals. Lots of classes to join right now.
Did you know that women live to an age of 81 today, compared to about 73 years old in 1970? And in general women today say they FEEL younger, too. We used to be told that women at age 65 were old, where today that number is part of a moving scale.
Though genetics plays a role, most of our feelings of vibrancy come from lifestyle. Eating right, sleeping enough, staying hydrated, ability to relax, and of course, regularly exercising are key.
Did you know that the Pilates technique is a form of exercise about 100 years old? In our Pilates room, we have state of the art Pilates Reformers, and TRX systems where we can guide you through this tried and true method. Because we know you want to continue feeling young as much as we do!
The Pilates Method uniquely combines core strengthening in just the right body alignment so that you improve your flexibility at the same time. That means you are stretching out at the same time you are strengthening.
At our Mission Valley San Diego Pilates Studio, our pilates room is full of the latest state of the art Pilates equipment. While the person in this photo is strengthening her arms and upper back, she is also stretching her spine.
Bonus points: It feels so good!
Not doing it! How many excuses do YOU have? Come on! It's the #1 fitness trend for 2014.
We combine the explosiveness of TRX training, with the challenging core and flexibility work of the Pilates Reformer in a single class at our Mission Valley Pilates studio .
Not enough time? We can work with your schedule where YOU name the time. Only 3 people in any class....is that personal enough?.
Need more energy and focus? Increase core strength with these powerful classes!

Our pilates room is stocked with the latest top of the line pilates equipment. Some people have never even heard of the Pilates Chair, pictured here. It is more challenging than the PIlates Reformer, and training with it really cranks things up!
We include exercises on it, in all of our Pilates Reformer classes in Mission Valley, for those clients who are experienced attendees at our San Diego studio.
Pilates is great for back problems. Building strength and flexibility is the key! Ask us how we do it at our San Diego Pilates studio in Mission Valley.
