Event Types :

Are you looking to achieve core stability and good posture? Or increase your flexibility while building strength? In this program, led by Loren Weiland, an expert instructor at Crosby Wellness Center, you’ll learn the ins-and-outs of the Pilates reformer, a training machine that creates resistance to work every muscle in your body. Recent research has shown that regular reformer exercises offer greater shoulder and lower back strength, plus a decreased chance of falling in people over 65. The reformer is also versatile enough for a full-body workout in less than an hour, while helping you to build the stretch, stamina, and stability of a healthy, strong body.

Loren will also discuss additional benefits of adding the Pilates reformer into your regular workout routine and will answer any questions you have about its use and impact.

This program is demonstration only; attendees will not be getting on the reformer in this session. However, following this informational session, you will have the opportunity to schedule a free, 15-minute demo session to try it out for yourself.

This program is presented by Loren Weiland and hosted by the Winter Park Health Foundation in partnership with the Crosby Wellness Center at the Center for Health & Wellbeing.
