The Contrology Center is proud to offer a full range of Pilates equipment classes on state of the art manufactured Balanced Body apparatus. Group Classes are offered in Reformer, Tower, Chair, Jump board, and Mat. In addition, other accessory pieces such as the Arm Chair, High Barrel, Spine Corrector, Foot Corrector, Toe Corrector, and Baby Arc are available for client specific needs. The variety of equipment allows the client to experience the fundamental body movements on different apparatus which can be essential when health or physical limitations can make it difficult on one piece of equipment versus another. Classes at the Contrology Center focus on developing the body uniformly and private client sessions will vary on equipment usage tailored to the individual need of the client.
A private session is the ideal way to start Pilates. The session is tailored to your individual needs (health limitations, dancer/sport performance, injury rehabilitation, stress management) and results can be seen rapidly from the personal attention to detail.
In this Duet session, two clients work together on the equipment (Reformer, Tower, and Chair classes are all available as a semi-private). The session is also tailored to benefit both of the clients’ specific goals, but allows each client to take a more personal responsibility of their own workout and share the experience and cost with a friend or partner.
Small Group Equipment Classes
For the safety and benefit of all our clients, the Contrology Center offers group classes in a personal setting to allow the highly trained instructors to modify the exercises to accommodate each client’s personal fitness level. If you are new to Pilates, you are strongly encouraged to take advantage of our introductory package of private lessons to learn the basic principles of Pilates and become familiar with the equipment before joining one of our group classes.
A variety of group classes are offered to fit the interest and fitness goals of our customer base. Whether you are a classical Pilates enthusiast or want to experience an upbeat twist on the Authentic Pilates method, we have the right class to fit your schedule and needs!
Below is a listing of our class offerings:
Reformer (Level 1, 2): The Pilates reformer class takes the client through a full body workout. Exercises are performed in a sequence that prepares the body to be warm and ready to execute the next exercise, with a focus on flow and breathing. Please note, Level 2 class moves at a faster pace with more advanced exercises. Clients should be familiar with the Level 1 exercise names and be able to adequately execute the exercises before taking a Level 2 class.
Tower/ Equipment (Level 1, 2): The Pilates Tower offer a spring resistance to both assistance and challenge the client to accomplish the fundamental Pilates movements. This full body workout incorporates all the necessary body movements for uniform body development. Clients should be familiar with the Level 1 exercise names and be able to adequately execute the exercises before taking a Level 2 class.
Mat (Level 1, 2): The Mat workout is a great way to start Pilates and offers the client the opportunity to learn the fundamentals of the Pilates method. Exercises can be modified and are adaptable among different fitness levels as you become more comfortable with the method. This is a great class to take in addition to your equipment classes as it challenges you to create resistance within your own body and provides you with exercises you can perform at home or when traveling and can’t get to your favorite equipment class!
