Cambridge, United Kingdom, June 17, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- Women in Cambridge wanting to exercise with Pilates have never had a dedicated studio until this year. Juice Pilates and Yoga opened Cambridge’s first dedicated Pilates and Yoga studio this past April. The quaint Pilates studio is located on the buzzing Mill Road near the city centre and boasts a spacious first floor overlooking residential courtyards and has a shinning conservatory to take advantage of Cambridge’s beautiful summer.
Inside, women will find six Reformer Pilates machines or twelve Pilates mats, depending on what type of Pilates class they’re attending. Reformer Pilates is a machine based form of exercise helping women achieve high intensity workouts (if desired) without the high impact on bones and joints normally associated. Reformer Pilates is wildly popular in the U.S. and London as a form of group exercise highly focusing on strength, stability, and cardio.
Still not sure what a Reformer Pilates machine is? Imagine your bed on a seamlessly transformed into a gliding carriage surrounded by a system of springs, straps, and pulleys. A certified instructor can put clients through more than 100 different exercises focused on large and small muscle groups. A foot board is located the bottom of the gliding platform which one can sit, kneel, lie, or stand (forward and backwards). Women can push or pull off the foot bar using arms or legs to fully work extension and contraction muscle groups in a spring resisted environment.
Pilates classs at Juice Pilates utilize dynamic movement planes to increase the health of your spine, and limit repetitive movements in a single direction. The following classes are available for the women of Cambridgeshire: Antenatal, Arms & Abs , Body Blast, Body Tone, Classic, Core & Fitness, Energizing Jump, Gentle Cardio, LBT (Legs Bums Tums), Lunchtime Tone, Squatastic, Total Body Wake Up, and Yummy Mummy.
For women tired of taking Pilates in a local church or auditorium and want the full fitness experience of machine based Pilates, try a local Reformer Pilates class.
