Living FIT

FIT 407 blends classic Pilates with strength training for a revolutionary workout.

Sometimes, you can achieve your fastest fitness results by taking it slow. That’s just one benefit of many that clients of FIT 407 Modern Pilates can expect from  Michele Nelson and the staff of highly trained fitness instructors.

The “slow” is a reference to Slow Resistance Training—that is the basis of the FIT Method of Modern Pilates. The FIT Method works on the slow twitch fibers in your muscles, bringing them to “failure” quicker and more efficiently. Spring-loaded machines, specially designed for the FIT 407 studios, provide the resistance and a FIT 407 instructor, schooled in the FIT Method with over 100 hours of extensive training, provides the guidance. The novelty of the FIT 407 approach is that there is a combination of Pilates movements with strength training to create something fresh in the world of fitness.

Classes typically last 45 minutes, during which time members will put their whole body through an intense workout that delivers the benefits of resistance exercise with a pronounced cardiovascular component. There are so many calories being burned during the class that attendees’ heart rates will rise into the aerobic zone 2 where optimal fat burning takes place—and stay there. All of this in a boutique Pilates studio with curated music and a vibe like no other.

Bonus benefit, and it’s an important one—this is all low impact training. It’s easier on the body, with much less chance for injury. And that is good news for everyone, no matter what your fitness level may be. Michele says, “We have a diverse range of members in both age and fitness levels. Some are young moms looking to build energy and confidence. Some are grandmothers looking to stay fit and healthy to enjoy family. Others are professional athletes looking to take their performance to the next level. One of our longest attending members is a grandmother with nine grandchildren who comes 4-5 days a week. Her energy and fitness are truly next level.”

Is FIT 407 for you? “Give us a try. We guarantee  you won’t find a more supportive, motivational, or inspiring environment for developing physical and mental fitness anywhere. And you’ll love the results.”
