Welcome

Pivotal is no ordinary Pilates Studio. We are a specialty fitness space where one can de-stress and build mind/body connection. Pivotal is a place where you can join a community of like minded individuals, young and adult, learning to get authentically fit, stronger, and gaining skill and competence in their abilities to maintain and build body intelligence. We have 5 divisions of fitness dedicated to individual needs and goals. Take a look and see if you fit into a series or program, or if you fit into a few we can tailor a fitness program to meet your needs.

In my opinion, intelligent exercise options are in short supply. If you’ve been injured or want to preserve your joints and spine, then a more focused and detailed oriented type of fitness is what you want. Even if you are fit and want to turn it up a notch, doing it safely and efficiently makes sense. I think we are past the days of banging away on our bodies for the sake of vanity. We’ll maybe there are a few more diehards out there! For the most part, I think we crave effective and intelligent exercise. Here is a brief breakdown of why Pilates might be for you.

If you are a beginner exerciser, senior or just want to slow down your pace and focus more on the mind-body connection try our Zen Den series. We will walk you through every exercise so that you know what to move, when to move and how to move your muscles and bones.  If you are an active exerciser or someone who is use to working hard than I suggest you visit our Tone Zone; offering high intensity low impact Pilates based equipment and floor work. If you need special attention paid to joints preservation or rehabilitation, or a compromised condition such as pregnancy or osteoporosis, check out our Joint Preservation menu. For the athlete looking to improve your game, swing, stance, speed, agility or mobility try our Athletic Conditioning.  Finally, but not least of all, we have a division dedicated to Continuing Education and Pilates certification and instruction. Here you’ll find ongoing education for the fitness instructor, Pilates instructor, the enthusiastic Pilates student, or anyone looking to deepen their understanding of how the body works in motion.
