Offering a unique method
of exercise inspired by the
teachings of Joseph H. Pilates.

The teachers at Fortitude specialize in applying the Pilates Method to enhance anyone’s health – for specific sports performance (golf, tennis, running, cycling, skiing, riding, to name a few); for rehabilitating an injury; and for the senior population to help improve the quality and functionality of daily living. At the studio we predominantly work with clients in solo or duet sessions, but do offer trios and quartets as well.

“Our goal is to motivate and inspire, enabling each individual to create strength, endurance, balance, flexibility, and the fortitude to achieve your goals.”

Pilates Apparatus — One on One Training
All Pilates apparatus sessions are scheduled by appointment. Clients begin their program with a physical assessment and posture analysis, review of physical and medical history, and discuss specific goals to be achieved. Once the fundamentals of the Pilates method are mastered, an individual program is designed for you. The program created will be stimulating, strengthening, balancing, and most importantly, fun!

Pilates Apparatus – Duets, Trios and Quartets

Duets are offered throughout each day at the studio. We do accept newcomers to the Pilates work in a duet session. Duets use not only the reformer, but the Cadillac, Wunda and combination chairs, as well as the step barrel (aka spine corrector).

Clients interested in joining a trio or quartet should schedule an initial session with one of our experienced teachers who will work with you to develop a program to best meet your individual needs and goals. If groups are appropriate for you, we generally recommend a minimum of 3 to 5 solo sessions prior to joining a group in order to give you optimum results and a thorough understanding of the Pilates method. Our trios and quartets use not only the reformer, but the Wunda and combination chairs, and step barrels as well.

Please call the studio for available trios and quartet times. We also have a cancellation list for those interested in filling in when a regular spot becomes available. We will contact you whenever a spot opens up.

Booty Barre Classes at Fortitude

Booty Barre is a fun, energetic workout that fuses techniques from dance, Pilates, and yoga that will tone, define, and chisel the whole body. Booty Barre is the perfect combination of strength and flexibility with an added cardiovascular element utilizing the barre.
