We have a new love in our lives: ActivCore. It’s AMAZING!!!!

Many of us here at Pilates on Fifth just went through the training, and the system is truly revolutionary — you can’t escape your core! Gone are the days of “I don’t feel this at all”, or “Where am I supposed to feel this again?” The nanosecond we performed even one exercise in the ActivCore repertoire, we knew—beyond a shadow of a doubt—what muscle was being targeted. And this is the same with everyone…. No one has to tell you!

Across the board, there is an “I BELIEVE” moment at which people either discover a muscle that has been dormant all too long or feel a muscle being worked more intensely than they ever have. Read more testimonials here!

We Pilates folk naturally love ActivCore because of its incredible focus on, you guessed it, the core! We also love that it emphasizes the deep stabilizers of each joint to reinforce proper biomechanics. This attention to alignment and proper firing patterns makes us very happy, but others have a different reason for loving ActivCore. The rest of the bunch love it because the work is so incredibly intense. SUPER intense. Because the target muscles as well as the deep stabilizers of both the joint and the core work synergistically in any given exercise, the muscle work feels compounded — exponentially!

In the essence of safety, your instructor will start you off with a very do-able version of an exercise. However, think before you say, “That’s too easy, can you make it harder?”, because the answer is “YES, WE CAN! AND WE WILL!” And you will feel it! It’s an intensity that we rarely get to experience – so targeted, so “core-centric” (our new word for the blog), and so different from anything you’ve ever done before!

Even with one simple exercise, there are dozens and dozens of ways to make it easier, harder, more intense, less intense, etc. Because of this, users build strength very quickly! Charting progress is fun and easy, because it’s both swift and remarkable.

We now have three ActivCore stations  at our studio, so if you’re in or around New York, come on in! Just mention that you would like to include ActivCore in your session. You can even mix and match and do a little Pilates spiced with a little ActivCore. We will customize it for you.
