Pilates Classes

Pilates WEBE

Pilates classes at the Green Bay Y will lead you through a unique method of breath awareness, body control and conditioning. Pilates focuses primarily on strengthening the central core and using the abdominal muscles to control the movements. 

Schedules Mind Body Button 350Pilates is an exercise discipline that was developed by Joseph Pilates in the early 1900’s. It is a systematic approach to physical conditioning, focusing on the breath and core strength. A strong core allows the body to move without undue stress on the spine along with improved balance and coordination.

Enjoy the benefits of better posture, a strong center, and an overall feeling of well-being with our Pilates program offered at the Green Bay Y. All levels are encouraged to participate.

My Y Story...

Karen, Brenda, and Renee

Believe it or not, many Y staff struggle with living a healthy lifestyle just like our members. Each of us knew that we needed to eat healthier, become more physically fit and lose weight, but day after day of making poor choices and feeling disappointed in ourselves became a load even heavier than the extra weight we were carrying. Alone, change felt impossible; but when we joined together amazing things began to happen. We started slowly, holding each other accountable, sharing struggles and encouraging one another to try new classes and recipes. Through exercise at the Y and a healthy eating program, we’ve lost a total of 170 pounds in 12 months. It’s still hard to believe, but with the support and encouragement of our family, friends, other Y staff and each other, we did it! As the months have gone by it’s been exciting and truly life changing to see the results. We have more energy and are happier people. We became a team, and good friends that are committed to obtaining our goals and keeping the weight off long term - together. ~Karen, Brenda and Renee
