A holistic approach that's good for your mind, too!

Whatever Pilates Reformer approach you take, our talented, experienced, and certified Pilates instructors will help you achieve peak body performance through these workouts. Each of our classes is a choreographed routine of exercises that stabilize and engage your “powerhouse" (abdomen, lower back and buttocks), strengthen, stretch and lengthen your body, transform your body, and invigorate your mind... Leaving you refreshed, revitalized, and centered – and allowing you to live a happier life!

 Put the power of Pilates to work for you!

For people of all ages and fitness levels, our Pilates Reformer sessions focus on sculpting your physique and making you stronger and more fit. We also offer Pilates mat classes, where your body creates the resistance in place of the reformer pulleys and springs. In the words of Joseph Pilates: “In 10 sessions you FEEL different. In 20 sessions you LOOK different. In 30 sessions you will have a WHOLE NEW BODY!”

We can begin 'reforming' your body in 30 minutes

Pilates is a physical fitness system that focuses on strengthening your core postural muscles – and balancing your body’s other muscles – for efficient movement and improvements to the way you look and feel! At our studio, we offer both reformer (apparatus) training and mat classes, finding the combination that yields the best results and the most fun and enjoyment for our clientele.

In our Pilates Reformer Studio you’ll exercise your entire body – from your core to your outer extremities.

  • All sessions will focus on balance, control, strength and flexibility by utilizing springs, cables and a moving carriage.
  • Full Studio session routines (with six additional equipment pieces) are further customized to your needs to challenge, define the body and exceed your goals.
  • Our post-rehab routines unleash the body’s maximum potential after injury, surgery or joint replacement. Learn how to enjoy pain-free, youthful movement again!

 

 

A little about our Metro Pilates Team:

Ashley Capenos, NCPT

Lead Instructor of Metro Pilates Studio, Ashley Capenos was born and raised in Syracuse, NY. She received a comprehensive Pilates Apparatus certification through Balanced Body Pilates in 2019 and became certified for prenatal/postnatal Pilates in 2020. Pilates has always played a huge part of Ashley’s life. Around age 12, Ashley was introduced to Pilates Reformer in order to build strength and prevent injuries in her softball pitching. More recently, she gave birth to her first son. “No matter what I have going on in my life, whatever I’m training for or recovering from, Pilates has helped me,” says Ashley. Metro Pilates Studio is very personal. This is the gym she was raised in. Metro Fitness Club Owner/President, Randy Sabourin happens to be her Dad. After beginning her certification process in 2016 here, Ashley moved out to CO to explore what was possible with teaching Pilates. She taught for 7 various boutique and franchise studios in the Denver metro area and fell in love with teaching group Pilates Equipment classes. Now, Ashley is excited to be back in Syracuse to share this movement practice with you! She loves that Pilates is so versatile, that it really can be catered to help everyone. If you take a class with Ashley, you’re most likely going to feel muscles you didn’t know you needed, and maybe hear a funny story about her cat, Kevin. Ashley is available for private lessons week nights and Saturdays.
