         Body Systems with Equipment include:


Pilates: An innovative system of mind-body exercise evolved from the principles of Joseph Pilates. Pilates dramatically transforms the way your body looks, feels and performs. It builds strength without excess bulk, creating a sleek, toned body with slender thighs and a flat abdomen. It teaches body awareness, good posture and easy, graceful movement. In conventional workouts, weak muscles tend to get weaker and strong muscles tend to get stronger. The result is muscular imbalance, a primary cause of injury and chronic back pain. Professional dancers have known the benefits of Pilates for decades. Top athletes use it for strength, flexibility, and injury prevention. Pilates is a safe, sensible exercise system using a floor mat or equipment, that will help you look and feel your very best. No matter what your age or condition, it will work for you.

Gyrotonics training: was specially conceived by Juliu Horvath regarding key principles of gymnastics, swimming, ballet, and yoga through which major muscle groups are worked interdependently and in an integrated manner, exercising the musculature while mobilizing and articulating the joints. It simultaneously stretches and strengthens the body with minimal effort, while increasing range of motion and developing coordination. Specially designed exercise equipment is used, which is built around the human body allowing total freedom in movement, with no restriction to speed and versatility, and enhances rather than distracts from coordination and flexibility while building strength. 



Additional Equipment: Weight machines are utilized to strengthen certain muscle groups and allows lengthening of opposite muscle groups where needed. Various exercise balls are used to help with flexibility with special regard to the back. Elvis, Therabands, and the Fitness Circle assist with various Pilates and Gyrotonics exercises.
