In the 1920′s Joseph Pilates developed a system of precise movements designed to strengthen the core muscles and improve control and flexibility throughout the body without building bulk. The result is long, lean muscles, flat abs and better posture and movement. Pilates is great for muscle stamina, mental clarity and overall health, wellness, and awareness.
Project Pilates is located inside Hamilton Health & Fitness. Our studio is complete with a Cadillac, Reformers, Ladder Barrel, Wunda Chairs and Wall Mounted Towers. Private sessions, semi private sessions, group tower classes and group mat classes are available. And because no two bodies are alike, classes are taught using a variety of sequences and equipment. Not only will you stay motivated; you’ll look and feel better too!
We are the most unique Pilates studio in New Jersey. How? Included before or after your class/session is full use of the Hamilton Health & Fitness facility.

If you are brand new to Pilates, we recommend one-on-one sessions or at least taking a few one-on-one sessions before starting group classes. We offer a discounted package of 3 private Pilates sessions for new comers, ask for The Intro Pack.
Semi-private session’s for you and your partner are a great alternative to private sessions. For optimum results, partners should be at a similar level or in a similar condition (pregnant, postpartum).
