REFORMER AND MAT PILATES STUDIO
At our Pilates Studio in Caringbah our philosophy is to combine the powerful traditional aspects of Cardio and Reformer Pilates with modern day posture, lifestyle and of course some fun! The fresh mix-ups not only challenge your muscles in new ways, ramping up your calorie burn, but also keeping you motivated by spicing up been-there-done-that routines. Only at AMB!
Mat Pilates is usually what most people are familiar with; it is based on slow and mindful exercises that require having control over your breathing. It is performed on the floor using an exercise or yoga mat and employs controlled breathing during body weight resisted movement to build core strength. The Peak Pilates Reformer Bed is an extraordinarily flexible piece of exercise equipment allowing resistance and support for exercises involving every part of the body for our group reformer classes. Feel like something different then jump on a spin bike and join one of our spin classes.
