Solidcore Comes to Boca
Solidcore, a national Pilates studio with a new location in Boca Raton, aims to change the perception of the "high-intensity" workout.
The phrase “high-intensity” is often employed when describing many popular workouts but almost never finds its way into the same breath as Pilates. Solidcore, a national Pilates studio with a new location in Boca Raton, aims to change that perception. During its 50-minute, fast-paced workout, the lights are turned down low and the music is turned up high. Like traditional Pilates, exercises on the Reformer require core stabilization and utilize resistance to work deep into the muscles with slow, controlled movements. But at Solidcore, transitions between movements are quicker. The goal is to plank, push-up, squat, and lunge muscles into “failure,” or until they shake—an indication of challenging muscle endurance, which ultimately means the body is changing. This combination of Pilates meets boot camp has helped Solidcore earn its reputation as one of the toughest workouts on the market. Even Pilates regulars will find themselves dripping with sweat by the end. Classes are suited to all levels, and muscle-specific sessions, like Arms and Abs, Buns and Guns, and Core 30, will be added in the coming months. (561-342-1761)
