These Pilates Studios Will Help You Get Fit Around the Main Line

These Pilates studios and fitness facilities around the Main Line offer low-impact exercises to increase flexibility, strength and stability.

Although Pilates is a type of strength training, it differs from other strength training routines to which many may be accustomed. Pilates emphasizes muscular tone enhancement more so than muscle growth, although the final result is similar: increased stability and endurance. Pilates places a strong emphasis on the deep core muscles while also promoting balance in the mobility and strength of all the body’s major muscle groups. It enhances body awareness, flexibility, strength, balance and posture without the wear and tear of heavy cardio or weight training.

Interested in feeling the advantages for yourself? Visit a Pilates class at one of these facilities around the Main Line to determine if the trend is right for you.

Bryn Mawr

The intense workouts offered here are built on Pilates-inspired moves. They’re made to push your muscles to their breaking point on the reformer for resistance training. Type 1 or slow-twitch muscle fibers are the focus of each slow, controlled workout. You can get the “shakes” when they decompose, which is wonderful because it signifies your muscles are growing stronger! This low-impact workout will increase your muscular endurance over time with consistent practice. You’ll begin to feel and see more pronounced muscle definition, as well as an improvement in your general muscular strength.
