Club Pilates, 5300 Fountains Dr NE Suite 100, Cedar Rapids, IA 52402

The brand-new Club Pilates in Cedar Rapids has agreed to give us a group lesson on an apparatus known as the “Reformer”.  They have 12 reformers for us to use! It specifically targets the core muscles, by moving your body weight along a track using arm and leg muscles. Many have used this as a gentle, yet surprisingly effective way to improve core strength.
