These Hudson Valley Pilates Studios Improve Flexibility

These Hudson Valley fitness centers and Pilates studios provide low-impact exercises that improve strength, stability, and flexibility.

Pilates is sneaky. At first glance, the popular workout seems a whole lot like yoga, thanks to its minute movements and precise poses. Upon closer inspection (or, you know, attending a class), the fitness trend reveals itself as a seriously challenging workout option. According to, the exercise “conditions the whole body, even the ankles and feet. No muscle group is over-trained or under trained. Your entire musculature is evenly balanced and conditioned, helping you enjoy daily activities and sports with greater ease, better performance, and less chance of injury.”

Intrigued by the benefits? Swing by a class at one of these Hudson Valley Pilates studios to see if the fitness fad is the one for you.
