Pilates Reformer Classes
ABS Pilates offers an economical way to get your Pilates workout in one way or another. We offer several different types of equipment classes. There are Reformer classes and Tower classes. Both of these drop-in Pilates classes use a different type of Pilates equipment to improve strength, flexibility and posture awareness. But you may be asking yourself what is the difference between the two types of classes and which class may be the best one for you. While both classes utilize the core principles of Pilates, one class may be more beneficial to your individual needs.
