The Long And Lean Of It
Due to a heavy handed holiday pour, there will be times this season that you won't be able to handle heavy machinery.
Quick, while you're steady, step up to the Megaformer at Pure Pilates - it's the contraption used in the Lagree Method of fitness beloved by Nicole Kidman and Sofia Vergara. We sweated our way through a sesh at the West Campus studio, the first and only in Austin that utilizes this revolutionary system, and then took five with the toned bod behind this new concept.
When did your Austin studio open?
We (the studio is owned jointly by myself and my boyfriend) opened just over a month ago after relocating from San Francisco. After being on the West Coast for many years we decided to take a leap and move east this fall to take this amazing workout to the healthy and fit citizens of Austin.
Best exercise for buns?
Without a doubt the bungee…a strong resistance band that you slip on your foot to do various kicks that get those buns burning in no time!
What's different about the equipment at your studio?
These are the high-end reformers – some call them the Ferrari of Pilates equipment due to the smooth movements allowed and the flexibility and exhaustive list of exercises that can be easily performed. This is not your typical pilates class...it tones and strengthens the muscles that you didn’t even know you had in only 45 minutes. The New York Times and Women’s Health, amongst others, have termed the workout “pilates on crack.”
If you could teach a class to one celeb who would it be?
Tom Brady…partially just to look at him and partially to show him that Pure Pilates Austin is for all types -- including athletes!
