12 Reasons You’ll Love Pure Pilates Austin

12 Reasons You'll Love Pure Pilates Austin

There is a reason everyone raves about Pilates, it’s a killer workout and gives you that great, lean muscle tone. Now, take the mat Pilates that you know and love, and give it superpowers… that’s what you’ll get at Pure Pilates on the Megareformer. This 45-minute class will literally have your muscles exhausted and shaking by the end. This is not your typical “let’s lay down and stretch” kinda Pilates class.

I started going to Pure Pilates before I moved to Australia and genuinely missed it while there. After moving back to Austin, I was so excited to hear they opened a third location on South Lamar! I’ve only been back working out with them for less than a month, and though I still have a ways to go, I can already see my muscles changing.

If you follow me on Instagram, you’ve seen my posts at Pure Pilates and know I love going, but here are 12 reasons why YOU will love it too:

1. You’ll Never Get Bored

As someone who gets bored easily, I can promise each and every class will keep you engaged because each and every class is completely different. There are so many different moves and variations that no class is ever the same!

2. You’ll Target Muscle Groups You Didn’t Know You Had

You’ll know what I mean the next day… muscles you didn’t even know you had will be SORE (in a good way, of course).

3. You Can Really Focus on Technique

Unlike most workout classes, the goal of Pilates is to go as slow as possible. Because of that, you’re able to really focus on the technique and your form, which means you’re less likely to get injuries.

4. The Instructors and Music are Great

The music is always upbeat and motivating and the instructors are great at really explaining the moves and helping correct technique.

5. Your Abs Will Work The Entire Time

Since you are always having to balance, your core is engaged almost the entire time. You’ll see a difference in your core strength after just a couple classes.

6. You Don’t Have to Worry About Getting “Bulky”

The moves you do in pilates are focused on creating lean, toned muscles instead of short, bulky ones that are typically formed with heavy weight lifting.

7. It Will Help Improve Your Posture

8. The Workout is Non-Impact

As someone with bad knees and ankles, I really can’t do exercises that are high impact. Luckily, Pilates is non-impact and focuses on smooth, continuous movements to build muscle. You’re much less likely to get an injury with this kind of workout.

9. Your Flexibility and Balance Will Improve

10. You Get To Workout In Socks

Socks > Shoes. I love the Sticky Be Socks (pictured below), they’re super soft, but they’re pretty expensive. I recently just got these socks and they honestly have the best grip and are much cheaper!

11. The Studio is Really Nice

There is nothing worse than working out in a grungy, old, dirty gym. I love how clean and bright the Pure Pilates studios are!

12. You Know You Got a Good Workout

By the end of this 45-minute class, you’ll know you got a great workout and that is always such a rewarding feeling. Note: the picture below is NOT me after class haha I’m usually laying down, red in the face, dripping in sweat… but the smile does reflect how I feel at the end of it!

  1. I’d never heard of pure pilates before this, but it sounds amazing! I’ve been looking to mix up the routine a bit – I’m definitely going to keep an eye out in case I come across any classes in the future!
