Power Up Pilates has hired local fitness trainers with diverse fitness backgrounds that are being trained in the Power Up method. Upon opening, the studio will feature 12 state-of-the-art Allegro 2 reformers and will offer group classes 7 days a week as well as one-on-one personal training.

About the Classes
Our Mission is to challenge our clients…in an awesome way. Power Up is a place to escape your day for 50 minutes, where music is the motivation, the instructors are the inspiration, and the movements are the magic that will tone, sculpt and change your body. Our Pilates reformer workout is open, friendly and community minded.
The Power Up workout is created from the roots of Pilates using the Allegro 2 Pilates reformer. Enjoy an energetic workout that will turn your energy on, strengthen, tone, and elongate your muscles, as well as improve your endurance, balance, flexibility and posture.

“Our Pilates workout is so different from what people typically think of when they hear the word ‘Pilates.’ We have a challenging workout for creating fit bodies. Our method combines inspiration, motivation and music for a workout that offers someone an escape from their day and transforms their body,” said Marianne Baker.
