Mad-For-Fitness-March Challenge Celebrates International Women’s Day!


This month I want to propose a fitness challenge!
I know how hard it is to stay motivated, keep your fitness schedule and walk away from the cookies! Let’s do something crazy this March.


Attend more than 5 classes a week for 4 consecutive weeks beginning March 2 (Monday) through March 27th (Friday). You’ll be eligible to win a free week of classes here at Pivotal!
(7 classes total used over a 1 week period- any class of your choice).

Since I think that we’ll have more than one winner (hopefully), all eligible winners will be placed in a lottery and the winner’s name will be pulled from the collective. We’ll announce the winner Monday March 30th.

Come on ladies!! Let’s get fit, have fun, drop some unwanted weight and FIRE UP YOUR METABOLISM. Spring is around the corner!

Be Fierce and Fearless!

Have you “Cardiolates” lately??

Cardiolates combines all the cardiovascular and health benefits of rebounding with the core strengthening and aligning benefits of Pilates. Cardiolates rebounding increases core stability, working the deep postural muscles to keep the body upright, balanced, and aligned.

“For over 25 years fitness had been an integral part of my life, with weight training and running at the forefront of my exercise routine. However, as I got older, I often found myself in pain or injured following my workouts. It took knee surgery eight years ago and chronic lower back pain to convince me that I had to find another way to keep my body healthy. I had tried many modalities but didn’t find the classes as challenging or conditioning as my weight training and cardio. However, when a friend suggested I try Pilates and invited me to the Pivotal Pilates Open House, curiosity trumped skepticism and I decided to give it a try.
Well, that was six years ago, and I have to admit, from that day on, I was hooked. The moment I walked through the door at Pivotal – into the beautiful, dimly lit, tranquil space, with hard wood floors throughout, an inviting, small lounge area and an expansive array of Pilates equipment throughout the rest of the studio – I knew this was a special place.

Although there are many aspects of training at Pivotal that keep me returning week after week, including, the personalized attention I receive, the vast knowledge of both Susan and Nicole (and their openness to answering all my questions), fun and innovative group classes, privates that continuously integrate new exercises with traditional ones, the most significant of these, is the dramatic improvement in my injury related pain. I no longer suffer from low back pain and my chronic knee pain is practically non -existent. I have learned that you don’t have to choose between a body that looks good on the outside or one that feels good on the inside; at Pivotal you can have both!
