The next stop on our fitness train was Pilates ProWorks in the Financial District for a Pilates Reformer class.
The Low Down:
The ridiculously cute little studio is conveniently located in the Financial District which means it’s a central, easy-to-get-to location and walking distance from Embarcadero BART.
The space is lovely with convenient lockers and a fully stocked locker room with a shower so you can freshen up after class.
There are two large rooms for classes and a reception desk with goodies for sale when you first walk in. Just in case you forget your yoga socks!
We took Katie’s Pilates Pro class – A traditional reformer workout that combines weights, light cardiovascular work, resistance training, and stretching.
The class was very rejuvenating. It was a good workout that utilized the smaller muscle groups while simultaneously leaving you feeling limber and stretched out.
This is the perfect kind of workout for between punishing HIIT sessions or long runs – It strengthens and improved flexibility, while also promoting recovery.
I definitely recommend mixing in classes like this one to a full workout regime!
I’m also DYING to try out their MatBox class – It combines boxing, Pilates, and yoga. Can you imagine anything better? Those are all my favorites!!
