Specialized Pilates Reformer, Cadillac and Power Plate
Private and Small Group Fitness Training
Personal Training at the NeuroBalance Center provides safe and effective exercise programs to challenge individuals or small groups with Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson’s Disease and other Neuromuscular and Autoimmune conditions. Personal Training is also available for general populations of all ages, athletes and anyone with special considerations.
The Pilates Reformer and Cadillac, Power Plate®, weights, straps, yoga and balance balls are utilized by our Personal Trainers to improve strength, balance, flexibility, range of motion, athletic performance, day-to-day function, relaxation and gait.
Joseph Pilates invented the Reformer and Cadillac specifically to assist those with deficits through use of straps and springs. Pilates principles focus on breathing, core, pelvic and shoulder stabilization to facilitate walking and all activities of daily living.
Benefits include better posture, heightened body awareness, improved self-confidence, increased core strength and stability, reduced back pain, stress reduction, improved balance, coordination and mobility.

Power Plate technology uses vibration to accelerate the impact of exercise allowing a person to accomplish in 30 minutes what would require 90 minutes using conventional methods. Vibration causes increased muscle contractions per second than conventional exercise. This allowsfor a shorter total time needed per exercise session. Vibration increases circulation and nerve stimulation; which when added to shorter exercise sessions, results in less fatigue and quicker recovery times following exercise. Power Plate training is used to increase muscle tone and strength, lengthen muscles, promote increased bone density, decrease pain and spasticity, improve balance, flexibility, coordination and accelerate fat loss.
At the NeuroBalance Center we use Power Plate training extensively for individuals with neurological conditions including Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson’s Disease, Stroke, Neuropathy and more. It is appropriate for all individuals who can support their weight standing for short periods of time (while holding on if needed).
Training can be advanced for athletes to increase performance and flexibility as well as enhance rehabilitation for recovery from injuries.
