Try CARDIOLATES®! A Cardio Pilates experience to bring fat-burning and upright alignment training to your Pilates classes!
A cardio workout that does NOT derail your Pilates workouts, CARDIOLATES® gets your heart pumping and strengthens your body at the cellular level while emphasizing proper alignment. CARDIOLATES® is a true Cardio Pilates workout to give you more spring in your step, improve your posture and help you lose weight.
CARDIOLATES® benefits include:
- Improves body composition (melts fat!)
- Increases bone density
- Improves blood, lymph and oxygen circulation in the body
- Strengthens the immune system
- Improves balance
- Improves posture (when you focus on rebounding upright!)
- Absorbs impact to the joint relative to typical cardiovascular exercise
- Makes you SMILE because it’s FUN!!!!
CARDIOLATES® is an exciting exercise program which combines the cardiovascular and cellular benefits of rebounding with the core strengthening and postural benefits of Pilates. Pilates effectively strengthens and flattens the abs, lengthens and tones muscles and improves posture, but it fails to provide one important health benefit: cardiovascular activity. Rebounding strengthens the body's musculoskeletal system by providing an increased gravitational load without the impact to the joints that running, jogging or aerobics generates.
The rebounding technique used in CARDIOLATES® maintains the body's proper alignment and thus the body is strengthened in its OPTIMAL POSTURE. Your deep core muscles engage automatically as they work to keep you upright and thus gain the strength necessary to keep you moving through all your daily activities with beautiful posture. Why overwork one muscle group (as most cardiovascular activities such as treadmills, stairmasters, etc. do) when you can strengthen every cell of your body in perfect alignment with CARDIOLATES®?!
You'll finish the class feeling refreshed, rejuvenated and realigned! You'll get a total body workout that is fun, fat-burning and core strengthening. You'll leave the class walking taller with a new bounce in your step.
CHOOSE THE PROGRAM THAT BEST SUITS YOU AND YOUR FITNESS NEEDS!
ALL OPTIONS ARE LOW IMPACT!
1) CARDIOLATES® CLASSES
Join a group and Jump!! The class begins with Pilates warm-ups for alignment, then proceeds to core-strengthening Pilates mat exercises. After that, we proceed to rebound!! The class will rebound together for 25-30 minutes, taking opportunities to stretch and tone intermittently as needed. In the last 15 minutes of class, we add some additional arm exercises as well as key stretches to balance muscle groups.
2) CARDIOLATES® CIRCUIT TRAINING
If you'd rather incorporate CARDIOLATES® into your private or duet session, you can!! Just let your instructor know you'd like to try it, and you can jump as little or much as you would like during your session. Additionally, have you ever tried "Hundreds" on a Rebounder?

Studies have shown that as little as 30 seconds of running* between exercise stations dramatically improved aerobic endurance (17%), reduced body fat percentages 10.9%-17.1% in 12 weeks, and increased strength up to 26% in that same period."
