Best of all, the variety of Pilates classes - Stretch, Interval Training, Upper Body, Lower Body, Cardio, Abs - keeps all fitness levels motivated and challenged.

UNDERSTANDING IM=X® FUNDAMENTALS PART 1 The IM=X® 5 fundamentals were designed to simplify spinal mechanics and stabilization. Spinal Elongation: ▷▷ Lengthening the spine beyond neutral without flattening its thoracic or lumbar curves ▷▷ Spinal flexors and extensors engage ▷▷ Decompresses the spinal segments and the hip ▷▷ Elongates the spinal and abdominal muscle in a neutral position IM=X® uses this technique between exercises to avoid compressive loading during exercise and to strengthen the Spine Stabilization System which in turn prevents back problems. Stay tuned next month to learn about the 2nd fundamental, Forced Exhalation.
