Lunch MAX Burn

Pilates Mix
Focus on your postural muscles, which help keep the body balanced and are essential for supporting the spine. Pilates teaches awareness of breath and alignment of the spine while strengthening the deep torso muscles.

Piyo combines the muscle-sculpting, corefirming benefits of Pilates with the strength and flexibility advantages of yoga. And, we crank up the speed to deliver a true fat-burning, lowimpact workout that leaves your body looking long, lean, and incredibly defined.

Start with an intense 20-minute uphill ride with sprints on the bike, followed by a 20-minute “old school” step routine. The last 15 minutes of class will focus on strength training, ab work, and stretching.
