TRX / Pilates Reformer Studio
Take your strength-training to the next level with our brand new TRX studio. TRX suspension training allows users to work against their own body weight, building muscle, strengthening their core, and improving balance. In this studio we provide equipment-based Pilates Reformer training in one-on-one, duet, or small-group sessions. The sessions are fee-based and include a Pilates Reformer trainer to guide you through the exercises.
