For fitness fans seeking a red-hot workout geared to quickly burn calories and tone the body in a short amount of time, Pilates Plus La Jolla, at 7712 Fay Ave., could become your workout haven.

The company offers an intense Pilates resistance training and circuit-training workout on its ProFormer machine, and spinning sessions on a stationary bicycle.

“In a 40-minute Pilates workout session, you’ll reach muscle fatigue,” said Monika Haggenmuller, studio manager/instructor, “and with a 15-minute spinning class (cardiovascular exercise) you can burn from 500 to 700 calories each class.”

The circuit-training workout combines a couple of different exercises into one, so students gain a full-body workout on one machine. “When you work on building your core strength, you focus on the hips, the abdomen, the thighs and the buttocks,” Haggenmuller said.

She also listed the many benefits of a Pilates’ workout: It is time-efficient and strengthens the body, improves athletic performance, tightens muscles, elongates muscles and improves postural alignment. It also reduces risk of injury because it strengthens bones building balance and stability.

Pilates classes accommodate up to nine students and the spinning classes hold up to 15.

All classes are open to both men and women, and private and semi-private (two or more people) sessions are available.

It is recommended students exercise three times per week.

Pilates Plus La Jolla offers both individual 40-minute Pilates classes and 15-minute spinning classes, as well as a combination class that includes 25-minutes of each exercise.

“We have every age group, 20-65, and we have private sessions for people a little bit older. Most of our students are in their 40s and 50s,” Haggenmuller said.

Jessica Tomson, owner/instructor, opened Pilates Plus La Jolla nearly four years ago, and it has been at its current Fay Avenue location since July 2012. “Jessica is passionate about health and helping others gain overall wellness and body awareness,” Haggenmuller said.

Pilates Plus La Jolla is now offering a first class session for $10. Their All-Access Package includes the first month of unlimited Pilates and spinning sessions for $149. Students may book all of their classes on-line by visiting pilatespluslajolla.com and logging in.
