Studio Overview

Our mission is to REINVENT your body and mind through a new and unique core-based workout system.  Feel longer, feel stronger, and have fun while transforming a NEW YOU.
Looking for that long, lean, and sculpted body? Chaise23 is your answer. What is better than a workout that can actually Reinvent the shape of your body. We have fused together the sculpting power of Pilates with aerobics, strength training, and ballet, to create your next fitness solution. By mixing and matching our Reinvention Method (consisting of the Reinvention Chair and Cardio Chair) and TRX classes you will get long, lean muscles, that will resemble a body of an elite athlete.  Small class sizes (max of 10 people) allow for personalized attention, you don’t have to worry about working out incorrectly or getting injured with our Chaise23 Team.  Chaise23 classes are either 55 or 40 minutes fitting perfectly in your busy schedule.
Reinvention Method:
Formatted to 55 minutes of high energy, fun music provides an intense cardio workout, which blasts countless calories and is all done on the revolutionary fitness chair.  Fusing sculpting, flexibility, and cardio, this chair isn’t meant for sitting, but to kick butt!  With suspended bungees from the ceiling, the fitness chair challenges and fatigues both large & small muscles.  The constant resistance of the chair and arm-resistance bungees exhausts muscles by using repetitive movements in a seamless, Pilates and ballet based technique, creating a well-toned, long, lean, well-aligned, and sculpted body.  The Reinvention Method improves flexibility and balance, defining the entire body. The Reinvention Method is specifically designed to target the deepest muscles of your core, the ones that surround and support the spine. With the help of the overhead bungee system you will automatically change your posture  as you work on strengthening and toning your upper body. The chair’s resistance pedal completes your full body workout, targeting your glutes, obliques,  hamstrings, inner and outer thighs.

Do I need to arrive early for my first class?

Yes, we recommend arriving 15 minutes before your first Chaise23 class to get a quick introduction on how to use the equipment. For those that have not been physically active, we recommend taking a private lesson with one of our instructors to learn the equipment so you are stronger, comfortable, and confident in the class to ensure an efficient workout.

What results will I get from a Chaise23 class? Chaise23 classes will create a well-toned, long, lean, and sculpted body. You will improve flexibility, balance, and coordination—defining the entire body.

How often should I attend classes at Chaise23? To see and feel the results, a client should attend class at least 2-3 times a week.

How are the results different from barre classes? With the help of the chair and the overhead resistance bungees the Reinvention Method redefines your muscles, by elongating and defining your body from head to toe. You will never have to worry about your legs bulking up and best of all no aches and pains (only the right kind.) Due to our small class sizes you will learn how to workout in the perfect form minimizing your chance of injuries and helping you see results faster.

Who can take classes at Chaise23? Do the workouts benefit men? Every fitness level is welcome to take class at Chaise23– from someone who has never exercised before to the elite athlete.  With this workout system, there is a challenge for everyone.  Men will benefit from The Reinvention Method—with concentration on building the core muscles of the body that are not utilized in other workouts.

Can I take classes if I am pregnant? If you are currently an active person and regularly exercising this program will be perfect for you.  Our instructors are experienced and will help you maintain good health and fitness throughout your pregnancy.

Can I attend class if I am injured? Depending on the severity of your injury, we recommend that you get clearance from a medical professional as each class uses a piece of equipment.   We highly recommend that you inform your instructor about any prior or recent medical conditions you may have.
