Loggerhead Fitness voted Palm Beach County’s #1 health and fitness club two years in a row offers Pilates classes including yoga Pilates Mat Classes, Pilates Ball Classes in the Juno Beach, Jupiter, and North Palm Beach communities. Pilates is one of the most effective exercises for toning, shaping and building strength.

In ten sessions you will feel the difference, in twenty you will see the difference, and in thirty you will have a whole new body. – Joseph H. Pilates

MAT & BALL PILATES
All classes are suited for the Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced student. Ball Pilates incorporates the mat exercises with the extra challenge of functional core training on the stability ball. This class is suggested after you have attended the mat Pilates classes and feel you have progressed to the next level.

WHAT IS PILATES?
A program developed by Joseph Pilates to create a healthy body and mind, as well as a healthy life with balance. He believed the mind controls the body and the spirit builds the body. Mat Pilates is a group of exercises performed to create length, strength and flexibility, improving balance, stability and agility.

WHAT IS BALANCE OF BODY AND MIND?
“It is the conscience control of all muscular movements of the body. We should recognize the mental functions of the mind and the physical limitations of the body so that complete coordination between them may be achieved. Not mind or body but mind and body. My method develops the body uniformly, corrects wrong postures, restores physical vitality, invigorates the mind and elevates the spirit.” Joseph H. Pilates

PILATES IS NON-COMPETITIVE. YOU LEARN TO LISTEN AND RESPECT WHAT YOUR BODIES ARE TELLING YOU!!
