New PILATES Classes and Programs

Cardio Barre

Held on Mondays at 5:45 pm, Wednesdays at 6:45 pm, Thursdays at 8:30 am and Saturdays at 9:00 am at the Rock Road location.  Bring a friend at no cost!

Sculpt and Tone your whole body with this Pilates based workout! This active Cardio Barre class is sure to make you sweat as we integrate the fat-burning format of interval training with muscle-shaping to quickly and safely reshape the entire body. 

Our non-impact, one-hour workout uses both the ballet barre and the mat, and targets all major muscle groups.  The result is the recognizable Barre body, featuring sculpted arms, flat abs, a lifted seat, and elongated thighs.

Strengthen your mind and body and become a longer, leaner YOU!  Bring a mat if you have one.
These classes are held in our 3rd floor Pilates Studio on north rock road

Pilates OPEN GYM for Athletes begins September 9th!

This Pilates program is offered for young athletes in middle school and high school.

All athletes want to stay in the game, be injury free and enhance performance, and teens are no different.  But the pressure to focus on one (or two…) sport and to play it year-round results in using the same muscle groups day after day.  Often there is little time to rest and recover, let alone to get stronger and more flexible or work on injury prevention.  One way to address these hurdles is to add Pilates exercise to the training program.

A Pilates program can fill the gap for teenage athletes by introducing them to basic Pilates principles; improving alignment; conditioning body and mind; and helping protect against injury.  

Sessions are held on Tuesdays and Thursdays at the Pilates studio located at 1551 North Rock Road.
Open Gym is available from 3:30 – 5:00 pm
Cost:    Purchased by August 30th – $100.00/10 sessions  
Purchased after August 30th – $150.00/10 sessions

The Pilates Studio at GHC offers Group Barre, Foam Roller and Mat classes as well as small Group Reformer and Equipment Training.  

   We also offer Private and Semi-Private Training.
