Specialty Classes

Golf
Pilates for Golf by Thomas Brinson, PGA

This is a mind body exercise program that develops strong, flexible and well-toned muscles creating a connection between concentration and golf. Pilates brings focus to each movement pattern and enhances both balance and stability on the course. The golf swing is based on moving from your center with alignment from the ground up. “Pilates works on stability, strength, and mobility. By working on strengthening the glutes and core, Pilates can help golfers increase distance with their swing. In working the deepest abdominal and back muscles, golfers are likely to be stronger and minimize pain and injury.”

Tennis
Pilates for Tennis

Tennis players need strong stabilizing muscles in order to cope with the short sprints and sharp turns. … We will isolate and strengthen these muscles, helping them stabilize the knee and produce power when moving and lunging laterally. The benefits of Pilates to improve your athletic performance is endless. With a high impact, full body sport like tennis, Pilates practice is essential to not only keep the body injury free, but to also develop more strength and stability which will in turn drastically improve your groundstrokes, speed and agility on court.
