Is pilates the new spin?

Given the rising pilates movement in Singapore, Pilates is now included in the top five fitness genres, along with cycling, yoga, strength training and boxing.

Australian fitness franchise, STRONG Pilates, has announced it will exclusively partner with Yoga Movement, one of the largest boutique fitness operators in Southeast Asia, to bring its rapidly growing fitness movement to the Singapore market. Over a 3-4 year period, the partnership will see 11 new STRONG Pilates studios open across the island.

How is it different from regular pilates?


STRONG brings together a high-intensity workout with the special edge of low-impact goodness. Part resistance pilates and part cardio, you can achieve a perfect full body workout in 45 minutes via the purpose built Rowformer and Bikeformer – a hybrid between a Pilates Reformer and a Rowing Machine or Air Bike Machine. These machines were the first to combine resistance training with cardio HIIT training, creating a unique and challenging way to workout. Plus, with little to no impact on your joints, it’s one of the safest and most efficient ways to train.

Choose to participate in a range of daily classes alternating between upper body, lower body, core, obliques or a combination. Classes combine STRONG controlled movements and bursts of fast movement, offering a high-intensity, low-intensity or full body workout.

Also unique to STRONG, they adopt an instructor-assist technology displayed on movement screens around the studio, as a visual queue to class participants. Instructors have full control to move from one exercise to another using a remote system.


Look forward to adding something new to your fitness routine with STRONG Pilates!
