Wanna blast your midsection into shape? This is the class for you! Using traditional Mat Pilates protocols (the use of exercise mats instead of traditional Reformer equipment), light weights, resistance bands, and standing exercises, you’ll strengthen your body, define muscle, jump start your metabolism, burn fat, and increase your flexibility. All it takes is a little resistance and counter-resistance—and a whole lotta yes I can. Grip socks recommended (available for purchase).
