Pilates Reformer and Pilates Chair Classes

Pilates Reformer

If you are interested in a fascinating workout that helps you to improve core strength, postural alignment, flexibility and ease of movement, a Pilates Reformer class may be the perfect solution for you! Our reformer/tower units use spring resistance and allow for hundreds of exercises to be performed. Class sizes are small which allow the instructor to address the individual needs of the participants. 

The RAC offers multiple class levels from Introductory to Experienced. If you would like help in getting started, or in finding the appropriate level, please contact Jean DeWitz, Certified Pilates Lead at (507) 287-9335 ext. 303.

  • Fee: $15 per class
  • Limit: Currently 3 per class
  • Location: Pilates Studio

Sign up: Sign up for individual classes through the RAC app under the "Live Group Fitness" Category. You can also call the Activities Desk at (507) 287-9300.

Pilates Chair

Despite the small size of the Pilates Chair, it is a total body experience that demands precision and strength. By using spring resistance and a smaller base of support, a deeper core connection and engagement is required in order to accomplish the exercises. There are times when the chair simply won’t let you cheat!

Currently during the Covid-19 pandemic we are not holding chair classes, but some chair exercises may be added into smaller Pilates Reformer classes.

Youth Tennis - ROGY Classes

ROGY Tennis Program

ROGY Tennis highlights our focus on the development and transition of our young players from Red to Orange to Green-dot, and ultimately to Yellow balls. We have created a unique ROGY Tennis Curriculum, combining the best of the USTA Net Generation Curriculum with additional age specific drills.

Our program focuses on the development of athletic skills such as movement, balance, sending and receiving, along with behavioral skills including teamwork, respect, and sportsmanship. Children will quickly learn the necessary skills to rally and enjoy the lifelong sport of tennis.

Contact: For questions about ROGY classes please contact Sabine Tetzloff at (507) 287-9308. Also contact Sabine:

  • To sign up for the proper skill level and not by a player’s age.
  • To sign up after the session begins. The fee will be prorated based on the start date.

Sign up: Parents must register players for each session in which they will participate.
Fall Session 2 sign up has started and is through the Activities Desk or your Empower M.E. Member Login.

There must be at least 3 players registered to run a junior tennis class. If there are 2 players, the length of the lesson may be reduced.

Makeups: Makeups are offered if space in class allows. Please contact the instructor of the class you wish to make up in order to guarantee space for your child.

Progress Notes and Levels: Players will be evaluated on the skills introduced in their classes. Based on this evaluation, your child will receive a form with individualized progress notes along with a special prize on the last day of class.

Please keep in mind that a student does not always advance a level each session. Many factors such as attendance, coordination, growth, development (physical, mental, emotional and behavioral) and maturity level affect the student’s progression through levels.

Racquets: Players should provide their own age appropriate racquets for classes. Please label the racquet with your child’s name and phone number. Racquets are available for purchase at Thrive (507-287-9330).
