A Brooklyn-born Pilates studio expands to Cobble Hill

Indie Brooklyn Heights Pilates studio Brooklyn Strength will open a second location at the end of August—with a brand new group class concept—in Cobble Hill.

The homey, eco-conscious studio opened its doors on a pretty, tree-lined street in December of 2010, and since then it’s offered mainly private Pilates and personal training sessions to neighborhood residents (and some high profile clients like Girls star Jemima Kirke).

But its Cobble Hill studio—on the corner of Pacific and Court Streets near Trader Joe’s and Bareburger—will focus on small group classes (10 people max) using a Springboard tower set-up, kettlebells, and body-weight strength and conditioning. And founder Cadence Dubus says they’ll add to and fine-tune the classes depending on their new clients’ interests, possibly adding yoga, jump rope, and special sessions for men to “focus on things that men have difficulty with, like mobility, posture, tight hamstrings and lower back,” she says.

Of course, the hip, homegrown feel of the original studio and Dubus’ Pilates ethos—which centers on developing strength and mobility health and for injury prevention—will stay the same. “It’s a place for people who are serious about being fit for their whole life,” she says.  —Lisa Elaine Held
