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!
In the pilates room of our Mission Valley studio, we use tons of equipment and props for core strengthening. So when we do Pilates Reformer /TRX classes regularly, we don't need to take vitamins. Doesn't natural sound good?
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!
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.
Beach season! At our San Diego Pilates studio, we can help you choose your bathing suit.

Since today is National Hamburger Day, we needed to say a word here in our fitness blog...
Maybe hamburgers aren't your weakness....but we are betting SOME kind of food is. At our Pilates Studio in Mission Valley we believe that life should be enjoyed. No need to be perfect ALL the time. If you're feeling guilty about that delicious burger today, come in for a high energy Pilates Reformer/TRX exercise class. It burns lots of calories.
And National Hamburger Day only comes once a year.

Looking for better balance? No, not life balance (although that's important!). Just body balance. Maybe you are a golfer. Or maybe you are getting a little older and feel less grounded when you stand or move. Either way, pelvic stability is the key. To achieve this it's important to strengthen the "stabilizer" muscles of your core. Lucky for all of us this is a key coaching component of Pilates Reformer classes at our studio in Mission Valley.
In offering you the best pilates ever, we stretch out your spine to make you more comfortable and less prone to injury while golfing or just moving in your daily life. Try our pilates for golf class on Mondays, or join one of our regular pilates classes held everyday in our San Diego Pilates studio.
