IM=X® stands for Integrated Movement Xercize. Our studios offer premier instruction in pilates, barre, yoga, cycling, personal training and back wellness - all under one roof. It's a re-choreographed blend of unique movements that combine the muscle toning and lengthening benefits of pilates with elements of strength and cardio training to increase flexibility, endurance and muscle tone, while intensely strengthening the spine and core.
IM=X® workouts incorporate the Xercizer (reformer), Tower, Ring, Weights, Jog Boards and Indoor Cycling Bikes - an innovative blend of many disciplines. The variations within IM=X® make it possible to address everyone from the “couch potato” to the professional athlete to the person with general back pain.
IM=X® was developed by Elyse McNergney - certified in traditional pilates and the Alexander Technique with a M.A. in Movement Science from New York University and a M.Ed. in Exercise Physiology from Columbia University.

Our unparalleled commitment to continuing education means that the workouts are never boring and always evolving.
