Try pilates - you’ll soon get the hang of it

By Holly Tregenza

BREATHE in, breathe out.

Welcome to the Infinity Health Club’s pilates studio.

With a wall covered in greenery, airy open space and beautiful equipment, you might just think you’re somewhere a little more luxurious than Kyabram in winter.

But not only is it highly Instagrammable; pilates, particularly the kind that Infinity Health Club offers, does amazing things for your body.

‘‘Whether or not you have been training for a long time, are just starting or your body is feeling a little broken, you can get something out of it,’’ Infinity owner Tara Jarrett said.

‘‘We’ve had people in here recovering from stroke, as well as netball and footy players working on strength and mobility.’’

And the proof is in the (chia) pudding.

The oldest pilates participant there is 83 and the youngest is 14.

‘‘We love how calming and beautiful this space is. It’s a great step if you feel a little intimidated to go straight into the gym, you get your own space and can work at your own pace,’’ Tara said.

And as well as floor pilates, Infinity offers a class which uses Pilates Reformers — one of the most versatile pieces of equipment — to promote health and wellbeing.

It’s specifically useful for those wanting to develop core body strength and achieve a lean body, and the springs and adjustable components provide the advantage of progressive resistance while providing proper back and neck support as well as abdominal control.

And pilates is just the tip of the iceberg at the club.

With an indoor heated pool, full service gym and yoga studio the gym offers more than 30 classes to its members, ranging from meditation to aqua fitness and personal training.

It’s open 24/7; perfect for the person who wants to get in and out at their own pace and schedule.

And now’s the perfect time to join. For Ky in July, Infinity Health Club is charging no joining fee — a saving of $75.
