Korlates Fitness is NOT TRADITIONAL PILATES.
It is a combination of Pilates-based exercises performed on professional reformer machines with towers, strength training principles, and other movement techniques. These Pilates fitness style classes consist of up to 8 people and last 50 minutes. With an emphasis on strengthening the core, our programs are designed to increase upper and lower body strength and flexibility.
You will get a workout like you've never experienced before!
We incorporate custom, extra long, pilates reformers with towers, kettle bells, mini trampolines, TRX Suspension systems, jump boards, resistance cords, weighted hula hoops, medicine balls, and other fitness tools to add variety and challenge.
