Core Cult (Cardio) @ New York Pilates

Class + Studio: Core Cult (Cardio) @ New York Pilates

Location: SoHo, Bowery, West Village (NYC)

Other Cities: Montauk.

Length: 50 mins.

Description: Classic pilates reformer class with low-impact cardio. Combines aerobic and toning exercises using a jump board – which, if you aren’t familiar, is a plank-like piece of equipment attached to the end of the reformer – and when you use your legs to push off of it it seriously works your core and glutes.

Sweat Level: 4.5/10 – Offers more cardio than any other NYP class, but it’s still a fairly low sweat factor (hair washing won’t be necessary).

Tone Level: 6/10 – Tone level is dependent on the instructor, but we’ve found this class to be generally tougher than Arms, Abs & Ass, yet not quite as toning as Burnout.

Cult Level: 7/10 – Definitely not the best studio to make friends, but that never deters us. Tons of NYP membership regulars here, as it’s pricey on ClassPass (sometimes 25+ creds for a class). 

Sneakers/Props: Barefoot or grip socks. We often bring a sweatshirt for the warmup as it’s kept pretty cool here.

Shower/Locker Situation: No showers, no lockers – just cubbies.

Vibe: Aesthetically, one of the best pilates studio vibes we’ve come across. 

Similar to: Core Pilates (NYC), Eden Sassoon Pilates (LA), BK Pilates (NYC), Club Pilates (NYC)

Extras: On CP. Very instructor dependent studio.

Go Back? Yes – probably our most frequented Pilates studios!
