If you’re searching for a way to strengthen your muscles, improve your flexibility, balance your body or simply to stay in shape, Pilates Reformer could be your answer.
Pilates Reformer is a specific piece of equipment designed to assist in different Pilates exercises. It can be beneficial to people of any age, work out level, or body type.
KCB has a room dedicated to this form of strengthening exercise. We own 5 Pilates Reformer machines along with other pieces of equipment that provide a variety of ways to exercise different muscles in the body.
Listed are just a few of the many benefits (Source: PilatesReformer.com):

For dancers, staying fit and healthy is a necessity. Being smart about how you maintain that lifestyle is even more important. Whether it’s managing the stress on your body, maintaining your flexibility, or choosing the right foods to boost your energy, knowing the healthy ways to keep your body in check is essential.
One of our company dancers, Jill Marlow, has a blog dedicated to sharing with other dancers ways to maintain that healthy lifestyle. Dancehealtheir.com covers a wide range of topics, including healthy foods, how to listen to your body, dancer profiles, and other topics that help educate dancers about their health.
Apart from being a company dancer here at KCB, Jill is also a Pilates Reformer Instructor and received a bachelor’s degree in Health Education from the University of Cincinnati.
In Jill’s words, “I dedicate dancehealthier to all those “hungry” dancers who are in constant reach for more (we can’t help that we are perfectionists). Whether you read and never look back, or become an avid reader, my hope is to educate, motivate and inspire you in some way throughout your own personal quest for “that more” – whatever it may be.”
