Does the thought of jogging on a treadmill make you want to hit the snooze button? Do you find yourself scribbling “get fit” in your diary month after month? Well, the time is now, and you won’t need an overpriced gym membership to get you there! Yesterday, Studio Pilates opened its doors to the serene suburb of Henley Beach. The new location is officially their third studio in Adelaide, making it all the more accessible for those with a busy schedule.
Studio Pilates came to life when former Australian Olympian, Jade Winter, and qualified physiotherapist, Tanya Winter, collaborated in 2002. The power couple combined their fitness expertise and passion for the field which has positioned them at the top of the Pilates industry. Their success has led them to expand their studios across an International basis, reaching New Zealand, China and London. They pride themselves on the objective of “to change the way the world works out” by formulating workouts that are inspiring, intense, safe, and an escape from everyday life.
The new venue radiates glamour and contemporary style. Upon entering, all eyes are drawn to the sparkling chandeliers hanging from the ceiling, the glistening polished floorboards, and the sleek, custom designed reformers which are easy to use, but incredibly effective. The team at Studio Pilates are full of energy and 100% focused on the success of their clients. Jo Thiele, owner of the venue says: “They aren’t up on stage demonstrating or doing the workout, they are right there beside you, helping you with the equipment, helping you with your technique, helping you transform your body”. This method of coaching is achieved through the use of innovative video technology, which provides class participants with a 360 degree display of the workouts in correspondence with cues from the instructor.
Pilates offers a range of benefits on a physical and mental level, predominantly focused on strength and the conditioning of the body. There are over 150 exercises currently used by Studio Pilates in variation to ensure participants target all the core muscles of the body. Although the movements are carefully sequenced, the classes are designed to be intense and full of energy, increasing the flow of endorphins which leaves you feeling positive and refreshed after each session! Pilates has also been credited as a fast and effective way to transform your body, which is a promise ensured by the studio.
The venue contains 12 reformers, which means you and your friends can use the session as a social opportunity to double up the benefits! And as some classes only go for 40 minutes, you don’t have to make any major sacrifices to attend. The studio is located at 269 Seaview Road, right amongst the beach and other fantastic healthy lifestyle orientated business’, making it the ideal location.
