Pilates exercises for beginners that we did at my first Pilates class

The Pilates technique has been around since the 1920s, but the workout is having a resurgence thanks to social media — Pilates has 5.3 billion views on TikTok.

Despite the fitness craze being around for literal decades, I’d never tried it—until now.

I went to my first Pilates class ever at The Spring in Tenafly, N.J. I opted for the more challenging class, Sculpt Pilates, which is “designed to work on core muscles, improve posture, mobility and tone your muscles,” according to The Spring.

“I try to encourage some heart-raising exercises and balance challenges during the class to spice it up,” said Pilates instructor Noa Harari who led my class.

And, she wasn’t joking. This class didn’t include use of the standard reformer Pilates machines, but floor Pilates was still extremely challenging, and I thoroughly enjoyed it.
