What people are saying about JCCMW Pilates:


Pilates (pi-Lah-teez), is a low-stress method of physical and mental conditioning named after its founder, Joseph H. Pilates (1880-1967). He believed that a healthy body begins with the strengthening of the core or what he called the “Powerhouse” This includes the muscles of the abdomen, back, buttocks, thighs and lungs.

Practicing the Method correctly provides great benefits:
– creates a strong body without bulky muscles
– improves posture, balance, coordination and flexibility.
It is safe for people of all ages and different levels of fitness. It can be practiced for a life time.

Here at the JCC, our private studio is furnished with the classical Pilates equipment manufactured by Gratz Industries and based on the original designs of Joseph Pilates. There are over five hundred exercises in the total system ranging from beginner to extremely advanced performed on seven different pieces of equipment and a mat. Our experienced instructors guide the student through the system and tailor the session
to the individual’s needs. We offer private and duet sessions.

We also offer a Duet Session for you and a friend (both of you must purchase and the session must be scheduled for the same time).

All scheduled appointment cancellations must be made 24 hours in advance to prevent being charged for the missed session.  Medical emergencies are an exception and please notify instructor when possible.
