Yoga & Pilates

Inspired by the same intention to offer safe, bio-mechanically correct training programs to our clients, PEAK Custom Fitness Solutions incorporated Yoga & Pilates classes to its list of services.  Our staff understands the benefits that our clients can receive through safely and appropriately instructed yoga and pilates (body awareness, mobility, core stability, peace of mind/stress management, etc.) and how those skills can further elevate their training abilities and performance.


Peak Yoga

PEAK Yoga, instructed by PEAK trainer Ruthie O'Hehir, is a stretch-based class that uses yoga postures, props, and breathing techniques to improve flexibility and mobility.  Just like our other group training classes, PEAK Yoga offers:

  • Limited class size (6-8 participants) to ensure individualized attention,
  • Postures that can be modified and/or progressed based on the needs of each participant,
  • Safe, effective, and evidence-based postures and methods,

PEAK Yoga is designed to compliment, not interfere with, workout programming during other days of the week.

Small Group Mat Pilates with Veronica Whetsel

Physical Therapist, Veronica Whetsel, teaches small group mat pilates classes at PEAK Custom Fitness Solutions every Tuesday and Thursday morning from 9:00 - 10:00 a.m.

Pilates immediately addresses muscular imbalances. Over-training the larger, superficial "global" muscle groups over time can inhibit smaller, deeper "local" support muscles and cause them to weaken. The result is muscular imbalance – which is one of the primary causes of non-traumatic, repetitive stress injuries and chronic neck and back pain. Balancing out the smaller and larger muscles with stability and flexibility leads to better and safer sports performance, and a longer, active sports career.

Pilates can permanently train your core muscles to maintain great posture efficiently, rather than constantly trying to hold your position with superficial muscles. An investment in training the transversus abdominus, multifidii, longus colli, rotator cuff muscles, popliteus, gluteus minimus and many more deep stabilizers allows the shoulders to relax, the head and neck to move more freely, and relieves stress on the spine, hips, knees, and feet.    

Cost per class: $35 (drop in rate, no long term commitment required)

There is a maximum class size of 8 people per class to ensure individual attention and care.  Follow the link below to pre-register for class!
