There will be a maximum of five people at the introductory session, which focuses on the movements of the Pilates Method performed on the most popular piece of equipment –- the Reformer, which offers a total body workout. 

Participants are also offered a promotional price for a private session for Pilates training in a one-on-one setting. This individual attention provides a deeper focus and enables the certified instructor to further assess a person’s fitness level.  Plus, it provides people an additional opportunity to see if Pilates is the right fit for them.

“The introductory classes we have conducted have been very successful, not only for the studio but for individuals who participate,” says Carol Crincoli, the owner of Pure Pilates and also an instructor.  “The studio has a loyal following, and the majority of those who take the intro class truly enjoy the experience and become long standing members.”

The studio also offers workshops, open to all, that focus on supporting a healthy lifestyle for the mind and body through nutrition, yoga and massages.  The next workshop — Back to Basics: The Pilates Fundamentals — takes place on Saturday, March 29 from 10:45 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. and will be geared towards deepening one’s practice by focusing on the foundation for every exercise on the Mat, Reformer, Tower and Chair. The cost is $40 per person – registration is required and can be completed through the studio website (www.purepilatesnj.com/pages/workshops) or by calling the studio at (908) 286-1100.

Founded in 2007, Pure Pilates is a fully equipped studio with Reformers, Combo Chairs, Towers, and small and large Barrels by Balanced Body. The studio offers a wide variety of services from Private and Duet sessions to an array of group sessions such as Reformer, Mat, Jumpboard and Piloxing.  Whether you are in need of increased coordination, strength and mobility, mental and spiritual rejuvenation, increased self-confidence, or just want to enhance your quality of life – Pure Pilates has a class for individuals at any fitness level.  To learn more visit www.purepilatesnj.com.
