Pilates on Fifth is happy to welcome a new addition to its Pilates NYC family: the XTEND™ Barre Workout, Pilates and Dance Amplified! We love Pilates, we love CARDIOLATES®, and now we have a new love, XTEND™!! For years we’ve been longing to go back to ballet class, but never could quite find the time amidst our busy schedules. On top of that, we were hesitant to go back to ballet class, fearful of how we would feel while our brains remembered how to execute the technique, only to have our bodies betray us….. XTEND™ has been the answer!
It not only adds a vertical element to all the Pilates mat exercises and Pilates Reformer work that we do, but we feel like we’ve taken a complete ballet class, without the fuss!
We chose XTEND™ because of its blend of Pilates AND dance. The symmetry is there, the muscle toning, the grace the balance…. Everything! The class starts with a brief warm up to get the blood flowing, and then progresses to muscle-chiseling arm exercises with light free weights, all to upbeat music to keep the energy flowing. And then comes the barre work….. we LOVE the barre work!! The XTEND™ Barre workout devotes equal attention to the front AND back line of the body, working the quads, the glutes, the calves…. The key muscles that will create beautifully sculpted legs and a super lifted butt! In fact, our clients remark that they leave the class feeling like their butts are about 1 ½ inches higher than they were when they came in!
After the barre work, we slither to the floor for INTENSE ab exercises as well as some additional seat lifting treasures. The result? A well-balanced, total body workout that ROCKS and keeps your heart rate up throughout!! …
A PERFECT complement to your NYC Pilates classes and CARDIOLATES® workouts.
