Club Pilates Belle Meade

 

It’s that time of year when I would rather put on my sweats and eat cozy soups by the fire than hit the gym. However, staying active during the holiday season will help maintain a healthy balance and energize me for all the festivities! And let’s be honest, I’ll need something to counteract all those calories I’ll be indulging in!

My first “real” job after college was working at a homeless shelter in Charleston, South Carolina as a grant writer. I shared an office with my boss, a former Miss West Virginia. Niki and I became very close as we worked in a tiny space together day after day. We were pretty much polar opposites on most things but I looked up to her in many ways. She not only taught me about grant writing but also about style, family and fitness. Niki turned 60 during the time we worked together and she never missed a PILA-Tays class {as she would say}. Niki always made Pilates sound so glamorous! For some reason over the years, I’ve never tried Pilates. So, when Club Pilates Belle Meade invited me to try a class, I jumped at the opportunity!

The studio, which opened in September,  is conveniently located on Harding Pike in the heart of Belle Meade. There is a free parking garage located under Publix for your convenience. Club Pilates Belle Meade offers a variety of classes for all experience levels. The facility has everything you need-retail merchandise, grip socks for purchase, a water purifying machine and all equipment.

I was a little intimated at first glance of the reformers but the instructor did an amazing job of explaining what everything was used for. She walked the class step by step through instruction and made sure we understood each component.

Pilates is a full body workout that stretches you as well as strengthens the core. It is also a great exercise for decompressing the spine. Each movement was intentional and modifications could be made.

After the class, I felt super stretched out and to my surprise, relaxed! My muscles and abs were sore the next day so I know that I worked hard!

Club Pilates Belle Meade is offering 20% off for the first 3 months of membership! Give them a call to discuss membership options, they have many great packages. I can’t wait to go back for another class!
