Bridal Boot Camp

Many of our clients express a desire to get in shape before their wedding day. Bridal Boot Camps have become very popular, with many studio programs, videos, and books centered around that theme. I found one such studio program in Virginia Beach. Platinum Pilates has been open for eight years, currently owned by Michael Uncapher for one and a half years. He has four instructors, whom conduct private and group classes.

For those of you who are not familiar with pilates, here is a quick synopsis. Pilates increases a person's flexibility, strength, balance, and control for a person's entire body. As read in the Platinum Pilates brochure, "the focus is on strengthening the 'powerhouse", the abdomen, lower back, and buttocks, allowing the rest of the body to be properly supported and move freely". There are over 500 exercises done in Pilates and Platinum Pilates has the needed machines to do these exercises.

I was very impressed with the studio when I met with Michael, owner and MAT specialist, last week. The atmosphere was very inviting and he and his staff were are very nice. I was able to tour the studio, getting a chance to see all the fabulous equipment that they have. Here are some of the pictures.

Michael was able to go over all the details of their Bridal Boot Camp Package with me. For the price of $600.00, the package includes the following,

1. Twelve private Pilates sessions (2 per week for 6 weeks) These are scheduled at the convenience of the client

2. UNLIMITED group Pilates for the duration of those 6 weeks. These are classes offered Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Saturday. They have morning and evening classes available.

3. One free Muscle Activation Techniques evaluation. MAT is used to eliminate muscle and joint pain and helps to restore your body's alignment.

4. One free Microderm Abrasion from the American Laser Center. Platinum Pilates has partnered with the American Laser Center in Virginia Beach to provide this great benefit in their package.
