Developed by Joseph H. Pilates in the 1920s, Pilates is a system of exercise that targets the deep muscles of the abdominals and spine to strengthen your body from the inside out. Our Chicago Athletic Clubs Pilates Mat classes offer the many benefits of traditional Pilates sessions without the extensive equipment. Our Pilates instructors will guide you through these movements and help you find any modifications you may need. Lengthen and tone your muscles with these Chicago Pilates group fitness classes, designed to help develop a longer, leaner you.
