LIVINGSTON, NJ – Marking the official grand opening of Club Pilates at The Shoppes at the Livingston Circle, Mayor Ed Meinhardt and members of the Livingston Township Council joined owners Arnold DeGarcia and Helen Angelis in cutting the ribbon at their second Club Pilates location.

DeGarcia and Angelis also own and operate Club Pilates Westfield, making the Livingston location the second in New Jersey. They are enthusiastic about inviting community members to their new studio and joining other new tenants like Mezza Mediterranean, Goldfish Swim School and CycleBar Livingston at 277 Eisenhower Parkway.

“Both Helen and I are from the area and would often visit, shop and dine in Livingston with our families and friends,” said DeGarcia. “We knew Livingston would be the perfect spot for our Club Pilates studio, and we are thrilled to open our doors here. Livingston is a dynamic town that supports local businesses and we value its strong sense of community.”

According to the owners, Pilates creates a strong foundation of balance, strength, mobility and flexibility. The full-body, low-impact workouts provide a high-impact challenge to the stabilizing muscles of the core.

At Club Pilates, members choose from dozens of 50-minute group classes— each with a maximum of 12 participants—that utilize a variety of equipment, including reformers, EXO chairs, TRX, springboard and Barre. A number of membership packages and single session drop-in options are available.  

“Our studio provides an inclusive, supportive environment for everyone – at any age and fitness level,” said DeGarcia. “We seek to make Pilates accessible to all by staying at a cost-effective price point.”

Club Pilates was founded in 2007 and there are currently 350 studios located throughout the country. In 2016, Club Pilates offered more than 2.2 million workouts to dedicated members.

“Club Pilates is the ideal complement to our growing healthy lifestyle tenant mix at The Shoppes at the Livingston Circle,” said Peter Schofel, managing partner of Eastman Companies, which developed and manages the shopping center. “It is our pleasure to help in bringing Pilates to the Livingston community and neighboring areas.”

Also opening soon at The Shoppes is Fitness 1440 and Moxi Blowdry & Beauty Bar. Aldi, the fast-growing supermarket chain, will open in early fall in the space formerly occupied by The Fresh Market.

Extra Time

It was close to 70 minutes into the match and I had to go to the bathroom.  Badly.

As fans watching the World Cup know too well, bathroom breaks are a serious dilemma, especially for those who don’t have a TV in the loo.  This biological necessity is exasperated by beer, which during World Cup matches also fuels a strong propensity to throw chairs and instigate riots.
