If Erika Bloom was a character on Gossip Girl, she’d be crowned the Upper East Side Pilates Queen. Blair would run into Lily at Erika Bloom Pilates Plus on Madison Avenue for a dramatic core-toning scene on the Pilates Reformer machine. Chuck would coincidentally be indulging in a Thai Yoga Massage in the other room, and Erika, who is currently pregnant with her second baby, would undoubtedly go into labor and Dorota would rush in and know exactly what to do. But until the show’s writers get ahold of this blog post, we can rest assured the posh, intimate private Pilates studio is drama-free, even with her large following of celebrity clientele. You can check it out during Spa Week for $50, and I highly suggest you do. Erika’s been featured in Vogue, Gotham, Fitness and Hamptons Magazines among others, and here, she writes for Spa Week Daily: Pilates is all the buzz now, but did you know it’s actually been around for more than 100 years? It’s proven itself as an amazing method for transforming bodies but still remains a groundbreaking approach. At Erika Bloom Pilates Plus we give sessions that are specific to each individual client’s alignment and goals. Our unique approach yields amazing results! Take a look at our workout on the Pilates reformer and cadillac and read why you should make Pilates YOUR workout! Erika Bloom’s Top 5 Reasons to Make Pilates YOUR Workout: 1) It’s the source of some of Hollywood’s hottest bodies, from Jennifer Garner to Madonna to Kerry Washington. 2) Pilates targets the deeper, intrinsic muscles of the body so it tightens, tones, and reshapes your entire body from head to toe (including those stubborn trouble spots!) without adding bulk. 3) Its intelligent exercise. You won’t get bored or burned out and neither will your body! 4) Pilates is a low impact, healthy exercise method so it doesn’t just make you look amazing now, it will also keep you injury free and looking and feeling good throughout your lifetime. 5) Pilates improves posture and alignment, and standing up straight is the easiest way to look long, lean, and beautiful!
