Are you looking for a low-impact workout that can improve your strength, endurance, and flexibility?
Then try Pilates.
It’s perfect for all athletic abilities and is practiced by approximately eleven million Americans.
If you would like to give Pilates a try, here are three studios less than 20 minutes from our Fort Washington apartments that offer high-quality workouts:
Georgies Pilates Loft
At Georgies, the instructors take pride in providing personalized attention. They realize that no two bodies are alike and customize the classes to meet everyone’s needs. The studio is found inside a beautiful loft space. It comes complete with state-of-the-art equipment and plenty of natural light. First-time students should start with Beginner Reformer. It’s designed to introduce the basic movement concepts as students improve their posture and body alignment.
Mind and Mat Pilates & Yoga
Established in 2008, Mind and Mat was created to highlight individual teaching styles. The instructors come from diverse backgrounds. They offer classes for all abilities ranging from beginners to elite athletes. Co-founder Megan Brown has been practicing Pilates for the last 15 years. She earned a doctorate in physical therapy and uses her education to help people lead healthier, happier lives. Try Pilates Boot Camp. This session is part Pilates mat, part boot camp. It focuses on strengthening the glutes and core, and students should be prepared to sweat.
The Pilates Powerhaus
Nestled in Old Town Alexandria, The Pilates Powerhaus is a boutique studio featuring contemporary classes. Owner Laura Reiman discovered Pilates in 2007. Today, she’s a certified teacher who attends continuing education. This allows her to stay current on the industry’s latest trends and techniques. Laura offers a laid-back setting, and all abilities can join in the fun. Sessions include small group mat and private apparatus instruction.
Along with these Pilates studios, our apartments in Fort Washington, MD are also near top shopping and dining destinations. To call our community home, please contact us. We would love to give you a tour.Back to all posts
