    • Fuse Pilates®

      Fuse Pilates, the original Fuse class, is a flowing mat class, choreographed on the spot, to music, around three body parts as requested by the students. Lower abs? Glutes? Arms? Back? Muffin top? Saddlebags? Love handles? Throw out your request, and we’ll help you redefine it.This is an all-level class, and teachers can (and happily do) make modifications for new students. But if you’re really new to working out, or a little intimidated by the fast pace of a Fuse Pilates class, try the Foundations level for more demonstrations and a slower pace.
    • Fuse Foundations

      Fuse Foundations is Fuse Pilates, taken down a notch or two. This beginner-level class operates the same as our regular Fuse Pilates mat class, but with more focus on beginner variations and exercises to build strength and stamina to get you primed for our more challenging classes. Don’t worry — we still make sure we challenge you to the core.
    • Fuse Focus

      Do you love that OH! moment in class where you finally “get” the way your body is supposed to move? Or maybe you like to call out “alignment” as one of the three class focuses?  Come to Focus, our  anatomy workshop, to challenge your physical and mental edge. Expect unique variations exercises with a strong emphasis on alignment to help you feel that deep, intense burn. We intentionally keep class size small so teachers can give your body more specific attention, offer hands-on assists, and help you practice deep (and deeper and deeper) master level work.

      Fuse Reformer

      Fuse Reformer combines the traditional with the far-from-traditional, taking you through a total body workout on one of Pilates favorite, and most famous, apparatus.  Of course, it’s still taught by request and choreographed to music.
    • Fuse Ladder

      Fuse Ladder (patent pending) is a full body, challenging, fun workout (emphasis on the “work.”) Focusing on functional movements, spring and body weight exercises, and balance challenges, Ladder goes after both the big muscles and the smaller, stabilizing muscles. Expect to climb, hang, lunge, squat, push, pull, and more. As with all other Fuse classes, Ladder is taught on request and backed up with fun music.

      Level 1 classes take things a little easier and are great for beginners and offer easier variations to the hanging exercise series. 

      Level 2 classes up the ante – adding challenges like (supported) handstand pushups and longer hanging sequences. Either class is appropriate for all levels – we’re happy to adjust to where you are that day.
    • Fuse Tower

      Fuse Tower classes combine the best of Pilates Cadillac exercises with a Fuse twist. Possibly the most “feel-the-burn” class of our repertoire, Tower will help you find your love-hate relationship with spring weight and discover muscles you might not have known you had. Did we mention they’re might be flying? Just ask for the purple springs.
    • Fuse Circuit

      Fuse Circuit is functional training at its finest. Combining Pilates reformer, tower and mat exercises with the signature Fuse method, this apparatus class offers a unique opportunity to experience the amazing strengthening and toning benefits of the Pilates machines. Fall in love with the progressive resistance of springs and see your body transformed in the process. Level 1 Circuit and Reformerare appropriate for most students with some experience in mat or reformer Pilates (barring existing injuries or conditions- check with us if you’re unsure). However, Fuse Pilates reserves the right to direct you to private instruction to learn fundamentals before you continue in group classes for your own safety. Level 2 Circuit and Reformer classes will add more variations and challenges, including some of our most challenging (and fun) exercises.
    • Fuse Jump Interval

      We haven’t been in a traditional gym in years, but we understand that sometimes you just want to get your heart rate up fast, so we tailored a special Fuse workout for you cardio junkies. This Jumpboard reformer class appropriate for all levels incorporates plyometric intervals using the jumpboard (think “horizontal trampoline”) with bursts of strength training for arms, legs, abs, back, and glutes. You’ll be having so much fun you won’t even notice you’ve worked up a sweat. Fancy that!
    • Push Prep (Prenatal Pilates)

      Push Prep is a special all-levels Prenatal Pilates Circuit class developed for moms-to-be. Here, we’ll focus on preparing you for the combination of strength and relaxation (yes, we said relaxation) that your body requires to deliver a baby. The class is safe for the majority of prenatal clients. If you have experienced complications, please check with the teacher prior to signing up for class. If Push Prep is not on the schedule (due a limited number of prenatal clients), feel free to attend a Level 1 Reformer or Circuit class (just let the teacher know you’re expecting!), and they’ll offer you appropriate modifications.

      Push Prep Mat offers the same benefits as our Circuit class at our mat class price. This class is appropriate for students – new to Fuse and not – during all three trimesters, as well as for those students easing back into working out post-partum.

    • Fuse Toys

      What would The Playground be without recess? “Toys” is your opportunity to play… Fuse style. This all-levels mat class adds in the challenge of all of our favorite toys, using the magic circle, weights, balls, and whatever other implements we can get our hands on.

    • Fuse Chair

      Think chairs are for relaxing? Think again. Fuse group Pilates chair classes include some of the most challenging work in our repertoire — enhancing strength, stability, and balance while toning every muscle in your body.
