Pilates is an amazing, full-body workout that is a game-changer for anyone wanting to build core strength and improve your overall fitness. In April 2023, I featured Elite Core Pilates on The Hart of Lake Travis and interviewed studio owner, Liza Edebor. This is not your classic pilates class! Elite integrates HIIT, strength training, cardio and pilates all in one. The four cornerstones of pilates is something we all need: posture, balance, flexibility & stability!

What Is Pilates?

Elite Core’s approach to fitness revolves around the principles of Pilates, which is a form of exercise that focuses on strengthening the body’s core muscles, improving flexibility, and enhancing overall body awareness and control. Pilates exercises are designed to be low-impact and emphasize precise movements performed with control and concentration.

  • In Pilates, the core muscles, including those in the abdomen, lower back, hips, and buttocks, are considered the powerhouse of the body. By strengthening these muscles, Pilates aims to improve posture, stability, and alignment, which can help alleviate back pain, improve balance, and prevent injuries.
  • Pilates exercises typically involve a series of controlled movements that target specific muscle groups while emphasizing breath control, alignment, and mindful movement. These exercises can be performed on various pieces of equipment, such as the reformer, cadillac, chair, and Pilates spring board, or using just a mat.
  • One of the key principles of Pilates is the concept of “centering,” which refers to the focus on engaging and stabilizing the core muscles throughout each exercise. Other principles include concentration, control, precision, breath, and flow, all of which contribute to the effectiveness of the workout and promote a mind-body connection.

Classes at the Lakeway studio feature a variety of Pilates equipment, including reformers, chairs, cadillacs, and Pilates spring boards, as well as complementary modalities like TRX, rebounding, rowing, and cardio circuit training. The studio’s custom-designed equipment ensures optimal functionality and performance.
