Increase your flexibility at Fempress Fit’s Chicago pilates class! Pilates with Pole is a ballet inspired workout, combining cardio, stretch, and toning elements. Feel poised and empowered in this high resistance, low impact class as you strengthen your core, and improve your coordination and stability. This is the full body routine that will help build flexibility, muscle strength, and endurance in the legs, abdominals, arms, hips, and back. We put emphasis on spinal and pelvic alignment, breathing, and developing a strong core or center, and improving coordination and balance.
Classes mainly rely on your own body weight for resistance; using the pole to improve balance and flexibility while sculpting the body. Light weights are often used in the toning of the upper body—while focusing on postural strength. A smooth flow of exercise engages the body from head to toe for a full body workout. If you are looking for that long, lean dancer body, this is the class for you.
All levels welcome.
