Private & Semi-Private Pilates

Pilates is a mind-body movement system designed to stretch, strengthen and balance the body.  Its systematic approach to specific exercises when combined with focused breathing patterns has proven beneficial for everyone, from a person rehabilitating from injury, fitness enthusiast, to professional athletes.

At the University Fitness Center, Pilates Personal Training will be done in the privacy of our private Pilates training studios.  Each session is unique, addressing the wants and needs of the client at that time.

Matwork vs. Equipment?

Since Pilates was developed as a system, people will experience the best benefits if they embrace the full approach and incorporate exercises from both the Matwork and equipment.  The different challenges that each provide act as a complement to the other.

At the University Fitness Center, you will have the opportunity to work on the Mat, Reformer, Chair Pilates Arc, and with a variety of props.



Semi-Private Training (Duets)

Semi-Private Pilates Training is a great and economical way to train with a friend but still get all the benefits of private instruction.  At the UFC, clients will typically alternate use of the larger equipment, such as the Reformer and Chair, but will use small equipment like the Pilates Arc simultaneously.
