FAQs:

What is Pilates Dance-Based Toning (DBT)?  Pilates DBT is a unique toning program that sculpts the body. Pilates DBT adds definition to arms, flattens abs, pulls skin tight, lifts the butt, and shapes the thighs for a long, lean, high & tight look. Inspired by great body sculptors of the past, like Jane Fonda and Lotte Berk, as well as the present, like Tracy Anderson, the Pilates DBT program builds on these evidence-based toning principles and weaves them into full body movements that fit within the Lee's methodology of balanced muscular development and science-based training.

How is Pilates DBT structured?  Pilates DBT exercises follow Lee's proprietary Track System (™), which is designed and programmed in a specific way to work the spine through all planes of motion. This creates optimal body alignment and ensures no particular muscle group is overdeveloped. In Pilates DBT the hip and shoulder joint are also worked through all ranges of motion to create supple strength of the musculature surrounding these joints, as well as provide a full body workout that gets remarkable results – especially in sculpting the arms, waist, butt and thighs.

Who is it for?  Anyone who wants to tone and shape their body, create strength without bulk, and enhance joint pliability without hyper-mobility. This is an intelligent, fierce workout that provides a robust education and requires mindful precision movement. Clients should expect to stay present in their body and work hard – but also be ready for amazing results.

Why does it work?  Using proven toning principles – such as high repetition, light-weight, long-lever movements, Pilates DBT focuses on the smaller muscles that are not often accessed in traditional strength training or everyday life. These muscles include the deep internal and external rotators of the hip and shoulder, the transversus abdominus, and the deep spinal extensors. These muscles are not only crucial for supporting and protecting the joints and spine, but also help create a defined, toned physique by lifting the glutes, pulling the skin tight to the musculature of the arms, legs, and stomach, adding striations to shoulders, and creating strength without bulk.

What makes it unique? The movements are all personally designed by Lee Vallely and her former partner, who used their combined 35-years of experience in re-shaping bodies and years of research creating the original method to construct safe, challenging, and effective movement sequences. 

Do I need equipment?  You need a mat, a towel and water, leg weights and light arm weights. We use a variety of other equipment in these classes but all work can be done without equipment. The other equipment used is a ball (any medium-sized, light-weight ball will do), a Pilates ring (work can be done without ring) and a theraband (any elastic fitness band will work).

Are there contraindications for this program?  If you have acute knee or wrist injuries you should not do this program. A majority of exercises occur in a quadruped/all-fours position with weight on knees and hands. You can pad knees with a blanket or towel but if injury is in acute phase, do not purchase this program.
