Plank Pilates @ Plank Fitness Studio

Class + Studio: Plank Pilates @ Plank Fitness Studio

Location: Lower East Side (NYC)

Other Cities: Nope

Length: 55 mins

Description: Semi-private classic pilates on the “tower” which is essentially a simplified cadillac. You’ll use props while on the machine to strengthen + lengthen all body parts. Lots of core stabilization.

Sweat Level: 1/10 – Didn’t sweat one bit!

Tone Level: 5/10 – Not an “extreme” toning pilates where you burn out or get the shakes. More focused on lengthening the muscles and stabilization with light pulsing.

Cult Level: 4/10 – Classes are kept very small, and we didn’t feel any culty vibes. Very welcoming studio, with extremely nice staff.

Sneakers/Props: Barefoot! (Pro tip: they provide water in a mason jar with sliced cucumber and lemon, yum! So take advantage).

Shower/Locker Situation: No showers, there are 2 changing rooms, refresh stations & eucalyptus lavender towels for post-class.

Vibe: Boho-spa vibes. Basic studio up top and peaceful and relaxing waiting area/changing rooms downstairs.

Similar to: Ave A Pilates, Uptown Pilates, Pilates by Sylvia, Pilates on the Square

Extras: Not on CP. Good for all levels. Classes are $40, but they’re semi-private (no more than 5 people). They also offer cardio + TRX classes! Instructors are very knowledgeable.

Go Back? Definitely! Would be curious to try their other classes too! Highly recommend for tower/classical pilates.
