The Studio

The Studio Tacoma blends Classical Pilates technique with the modern fitness philosophy of time under tension (TUT) to challenge the muscles and forge a deep mind/body connection.

The Studio is Pierce County’s first and only fitness facility to offer the XFormer®, a hybrid Pilates reformer that combines resistance training and cardio into one comprehensive, balanced system to strengthen, tighten, and tone the body. By utilizing Time Under Tension, muscles are more deeply fatigued and injuries are less likely. The body focuses on controlled movements, not momentum, to achieve lasting change.

Regular sessions at The Studio will result in increased muscle strength, definition, endurance, balance, and flexibility.

Playlists are a priority at The Studio and all exercises are readily adaptable to any fitness level.
