WHY GOTHAM PILATES

Since 2005, we have been providing focused customized sessions, and boutique studio classes, in an encouraging yet non- competitive atmosphere. Our strict attention is on form and function to facilitate more efficient movement patterns. This way, one can fully enjoy life, enhance athletic performance and increase vitality. We provide an amalgam of styles from our talented, certified and creative team. Through concentration and precise flowing exercises, our goal is to heighten the mind, body and spirit so one can carry positive energy throughout the day and to others.

FREQUENCY

As often as possible, of course! The goal is to have the benefits of Pilates unconsciously melt into everyday life. Usually two to three times per week is ideal for best results, but it can vary from person to person. Laura is happy to help guide you to your ideal fitness regimen according to your goals, health history and current exercise level. Recalculating your “fitness portfolio” periodically is encouraged. Do what you can today to feel and function well in the future.

WARDROBE

It is best to wear comfortable clothing but nothing baggy. We strongly recommend wearing socks with sticky grips and Pilates gloves for happy and healthy feet and hands. These items are available for purchase at the studio. Also, please remove street shoes upon entering.
