About Time: You Discovered STRONG PilatesBy Angelica Malin
In the heart of London, a fitness revolution is brewing, and it’s all about finding your core strength, one Pilates move at a time. As a concept born out of Australia as recently as 2019, demand has skyrocketed so the brand now has over 50 studios across Australasia, and its recently launched Islington Studio is the first of an expansive UK rollout planned. But what sets STRONG Pilates apart from the traditional Pilates routine, you ask? Think of it as Pilates on steroids, minus the sweat-drenched gym atmosphere.
In a city where fitness trends come and go as swiftly as the double-decker buses, Strong Pilates has managed to carve its niche with a unique blend of intensity and finesse. STRONG Pilates combines row or ride erg with Pilates-inspired movements using a state-of-the-art, patented Rowformer machine. It dials up the resistance, adds a sprinkle of cardio, and turns ordinary exercises into feats of strength.
A classic STRONG class lasts between 45-50 minutes, incorporating a mixture of cardio HIIT training and Pilates-inspired strength and resistance training to help members develop ‘the kind of STRONG that starts on the inside and shines through to the outside’.
The brand’s most popular classes include their regular ‘STRONG Body’ session – where participants are put through a full-body Pilates-inspired workout, paired perfectly with high-intensity cardio bursts – and ‘Pilates Only’, which combines dynamic movements and Pilates flows to increase both strength and balance.
Behind every powerful Pilates session at Strong Pilates London is a team of expert instructors. With their guidance, you’ll learn to embrace the mindful movements of Pilates, paving the way for enhanced posture, flexibility, and strength.
