Pilates inspires woman to open studio in Odessa

ODESSA — For more than 10 years, Kim Kitchen has reaped the health benefits of doing pilates, and now she is opening up her own pilates studio, Club Pilates Trinity in Odessa.

"I was someone who just enjoyed it," said Kitchen, owner. "That’s how I got into the business."

Club Pilates Trinity is slated to open in late April and will join other Club Pilates locations around the Tampa Bay area, including Carrollwood, Wesley Chapel, South Tampa, and Valrico.

Kitchen already has plans to open a studio in the Westchase area.

Club Pilates offers a wide array of group classes that it conducts on the reformer machine. Certified instructors show clients how to use reformer machines to achieve a full body, low impact, and high intensity workout.

Pilates offers health benefits for people of every fitness level, and also helps people de-stress. It is also a great compliment to other fitness routines and workouts.

Reformer Pilates differs from mat Pilates because of the use of resistance springs. The springs on the reformer machine counterbalance a person’s body weight, as well as provide assistance during exercise.

Classes are 50 minutes long, and the club holds different levels of classes throughout the day.

"We have nine different signature classes," Kitchen said.

Classes include Reformer Flow, Cardio Sculpt, Center & Balance, Functional Interval Training, Control, Restore, Suspend and Teen. Complimentary introductory classes are available during the first two weeks.

Club Pilates Trinity is located at 12454 State Road 54. For more information, call (813) 563-5353, or visit clubpilates.com/trinity.
