Santa Barbara Athletic Club stays true to Joseph Pilates’ original Reformer-based Contrology Method, yet is modernized with group practice and expanded state-of-the-art equipment. Pilates is one of the most effective physical conditioning methods available. It uniquely strengthens core musculature to enhance your body’s innate ability to move. The improved and corrected movement patterns you learn in Pilates can guide you in your workouts as well as your daily life. No matter what your fitness goals are or what sports you play, you can bet that greater core strength, flexibility, and overall control of the body will benefit you.

Private Sessions

Each Private Session is personalized and based on your individual needs and abilities to help you achieve your goals. From elite athletes to sedentary clients to those in post-injury rehab, the modifications and variations for each exercise make Pilates a safe and effective workout for everyone. You will use all of the specialized equipment including the Reformer, Cadillac, stability chair, ladder barrel, spine corrector, arc barrel and a variety of other small apparatus for a fun, varied, and challenging work out every time. Private Sessions are approximately 55 minutes in length and typically require an appointment.
