Pilates for Men
Pilates is often misidentified as a woman’s exercise, but a German gymnast and boxer named Joseph Pilates originally designed Pilates for German soldiers interned in England during World War I.
Pilates emphasizes the development of some of the core muscles that men focus on strengthening, like abdominals and the lower back. Equilibrium’s Pilates classes can help men intelligently work these muscles to improve the quality of their daily activities, regardless of their age, profession or involvement in sports and exercise regimens. Find out why Pilates is the cross training method of choice for professional athletes today.

Pink Ribbon Program
Offering strength, self-esteem and quality of life to breast cancer survivors.
The Pink Ribbon Program will help stretch and strengthen the shoulder, chest, back and abdominal muscles, allowing women to regain full range of motion to those areas affected by breast cancer surgery. This program is suitable whether your surgery was recent or several years ago and accommodates all fitness levels.
Exercise may be the last thing you feel like doing after breast cancer surgery, but it may be the best thing. We know you are exhausted, your arm may be painful and swollen and the adjuvant treatments can make you feel even worse. All you want to do is rest. In the past, that’s exactly what doctors recommended. However, recent studies indicate a link between moderate physical exercise and improved quality of life for breast cancer survivors.
Equilibrium is dedicated to promoting a healthy lifestyle and positive body image to breast cancer survivors.
Benefits of the Pink Ribbon Program:
- Improves self confidence and control
- Helps regain strength and mobility in affected shoulder and arm
- Enhances energy levels and works to control weight
- Improves sleep and alleviates fatigue
- Decreases stress and tension
- Enhances physical and mental well-being
Please note that you will need your doctor’s permission to exercise in order to begin this program. If you are experiencing lymphedema you will be asked to wear an arm wrap.
