FitReserve Studio Spotlight: Brooklyn Strength
Core, control, and anatomical awareness are all key at Brooklyn Strength, a boutique studio that offers unique variations on traditional Pilates classes. This Cobble Hill studio offers three different classes: Springboard Pilates, Springboard Athletics, and a signature Strength & Contrology class. Springboard Pilates is a straight Pilates class that uses the Springboard for added intensity; Springboard Athletics incorporates cardio intervals and weight training into the Pilates practice; and Strength & Contrology builds on a Pilates foundation with core-focused strengthening, Kettlebell training, body resistance exercises, and cardio intervals. Each class is open to all levels, and will help you work on total body fitness in a safe, mindful environment.
Neighborhood: Cobble Hill
Classes Offered: Springboard Athletics, Springboard Pilates, Strength & Contrology, Fascia Release: Flexibility and Pain Relief
Why We Love It: Each group class is small – 10 students max – which guarantees hands on attention from instructors. As form is especially important in Pilates practice, the minor adjustments they make can equal a major difference in results! A dedicated client of owner Cadence Dubois, Girls star Jemima Kirke is a fan too!
Why It's So Effective: Pilates equipment classes use bodyweight and spring resistance to sculpt long, lean, dancer muscles with a focus on the core. Brooklyn Strength incorporates these principles, along with cardio blasting intervals, into each class, which means you burn calories while toning muscles.
Know Before You Go: This studio is environmentally friendly, meaning there is no water available for purchase. Bring your own water bottle.
Don't Miss: There is a lot to love about Brooklyn Strength’s signature class, Strength & Contrology! On top of the core-toning springboard Pilates work, this class uses Kettlebells, body resistance exercises, and cardio intervals to build lean muscle strength.
