Pilates Reformer

Voted Best Pilates Studio by Cleveland Hotlist 2017

PILATES REFORMER classes reshape your body! The adjustable springs provide progressive resistance, which helps to lengthen and strengthen the muscles rather than building bulk. So whether you are getting in shape, rehabilitating from an injury or chronic pain, training for an athletic competition, improving your sports technique, or just looking for an interested, new physical challenge, our Pilates classes are for you! If this is the first time trying Pilates, we ask that you first take a few Intro classes or scheduling a private session with one of our instructors. While we do not require these things, we do highly recommend it for your own comfort and safety in regular group classes.

Intro to Pilates Reformer
Pilates is a system of exercise and movement that is designed to increase strength, flexibility, and balance. It integrates breath and movement within proper body mechanics to increase awareness, and use all of the muscles of the body. This class will teach the fundamentals and basics of a Pilates Reformer work out. Grippy socks are recommended but not required. This class is formatted for beginners.
Pilates Reformer

Pilates Reformer uses the reformer apparatus allowing for greater resistance and support from the straps and springs. Students will use the straps on their hands and feet for support and added resistance throughout various Pilates exercises. Various props may be used in classes including the short and long box, Pilates chair, jumpboard, and tower. This class is suitable for all levels with modifications available to regress and progress movements to accommodate each student. 

Pilates Mat

Pilates Mat will take you through the classical mat sequence ranging from beginning to intermediate level focusing on the principles and fundamentals of Pilates. This is a great class to build core strength, flexibility, coordination, and a connection to mind, body and spirit.  We will use various props including pilates ball, stability ball, straps, blankets, pilates ring, and a weighted bar to help assist and go deeper into your practice. Mat work is a great addition to reformer and offers a greater challenge by using your own body weight in the movements. 

Pilates Jump Fusion

Pilates Jump Fusion blends traditional Pilates reformer with cardio fitness and resistance training. A portion of the class will consist of Pilates Reformer exercises while the remainder uses the Pilates jumpboard.
The jumpboard is a solid board that attaches at the end of the reformer in place of the footbar. You can use it to jump while laying in your back, on your side, in a quadruped position, or even while seated. This takes a significant load off of your joints and makes jumping more accessible for people who typically cannot handle high impact movements. Jumpboard is great for increasing muscular strength, endurance, and coordination.

Christina’s classes are more traditionally based with a contemporary style to provide a healthy balance to meet students’ needs. She wants her students to have a robust class filled with mindful, integrated movement. She hopes that they experience a solid class so that when they walk away they feel challenged and supported. Christina has a long history of ballet and modern dance experience dating back to the 1980s. During her training as a dancer, Pilates mat was frequently used as a warm up. She started taking Pilates reformer classes at White Cloud studios multiple times a week and wanted more. She received her certification in 2005. Christina is a third generation instructor certified through Joseph Pilates.

Christina loves everything about Pilates, from the history to the transformative stories. People can use it for reformative work, healing from an injury, balancing out their body’s needs, or for a supplemental workout along side any other physical practice. You can be a total beginner or a highly trained athlete and you will feel the benefits from Pilates. What she loves most is that within a matter of one or two classes you begin to feel results, and then shortly thereafter you start to see the results of the work you have put in. Understanding body mechanics and awareness creates a healthy mind and body. It is one of the fastest and safest workouts and once you get hooked on the reformer, you want more.

Christina is the owner of Be Fitness and a former pole instructor. She started the studio by herself in 2007 and has grown it into a full fitness boutique. In addition to teaching Pilates, Christina focuses on creating an authentic experience for herself and her two children. She is always reminding herself and others to take risks and find a deeper purpose in life. She loves to dance, listen to music, be near the water, and connect with other people.
