Athletic Conditioning

Pilates for athletic conditioning improves performance in a wide variety of sports and is well suited to runners, cyclists, skiers and sports enthusiasts practicing a one-sided sport (racket sports, ultimate Frisbee, golf, baseball etc). Our Power Reformer and Power Springboard and Reformer classes condition the whole body with an emphasis on core stability. They are designed to enhance an individual’s strength, balance, coordination, flexibility, and power, which can be carried over into all sports. While form is always at the forefront, the pacing tends to be more accelerated in these classes.

Here is what clients are saying:

I have tried other pilates studios and either their teachers do not seem as experienced as they are at Optimum or the studio is playing loud music and treating pilates like boot camp. At Optimum they are focused on you getting a good workout with a lot of attention to form so that you don’t get hurt and you don’t feel broken at the end of class.

As a skier with a passion for steep and “off-piste” skiing, the total body fitness that Pilates is known for has really improved my technical skiing. I’ve gained more precise turns and better symmetry between left and right turns. The core strength has given me much better upper body stability and the lower-body training has given me more power, less tightness and better stability when skiing rough snow. The Optimum trainers have been awesome!
