What is Pilates?
Pilates can be effective alone, or as an integrated part of a comprehensive workout program.
Pilates was developed by Joseph Pilates in the early 1900’s, devising a series of exercises that could overcome injuries and postural problems. The Pilates method is a complete and thorough program of physical and mental conditioning with an expanding orbit of potential exercises. Many of the small therapeutic exercises can be intensified to challenge seasonal athletes.
Pilates will safely nourish your back, your abdominals and restore elasticity to your entire body. Its energizing and restorative qualities leave you feeling uplifted and energized!
Choose from the Xerciser machine or the mat exercises, or incorporate both in achieving your goals and increasing your overall fitness while being pro-active in your health care.
How does IM=X® differ from Pilates?
IM=X® is a cross-conditioning system that includes pilates moves but adds resistance training and plyometric jumps for a more athletically oriented workout. IM=X® pilates programs can be targeted to specific populations (i.e. athletes, seniors, back pain, pregnancy...); or tailored for a specific focus (i.e. Lower Body Workout, Interval Training Workout, Stretch Workout, Basics, Upper Body Workout and more...) The variation within IM=X® makes it possible to address everyone from the "couch potato" to the professional athlete. IM=X® programs update the original pilates (developed 70 years ago) to reflect the changes in exercise science. For this reason, IM=X® has been described as the "next evolution of Pilates."
