IM=X is a state of the art Pilates Studio located in historic Acton, MA. IM=X improves strength + posture. It is great for all body types + fitness levels.
IM=X stands for Integrated Movement Xercize. It's an elite fitness formula that marries the muscle toning and lengthening benefits of pilates with elements of strength and cardio training to increase flexibility, endurance and muscle tone, while strengthening the spine and abdominal core. IM=X is a cross-conditioning system that includes pilates reformer (Xercizer) training moves but adds resistance and plyometric jumps for a more athletically oriented workout so you can tone up and lose inches quickly. IM=X pilates workouts can be tailored for athletes, back pain, pregnancy or weight loss (i.e. Lower Body Workout, Interval Training Workout, Stretch Workout, Basics, Upper Body Workout and more...). The variation within IM=X makes it possible to address everyone from the "couch potato" to the professional athlete. Joseph Pilates developed his amazing method 70 years ago and IM=X simply updates its concepts and practice reflecting the newest research on fitness, cardiovascular training and spine stabilization. For this reason, IM=X has been described as "the next evolution of Pilates workouts." Everyone -- from fitness newbies to hard-core gym rats -- can benefit from IM=X. The program has been proven effective for all body types and fitness levels, regardless of age, weight or ability. There are specialized IM=X formats designed for weight loss, athletes, pregnancy, golf and people with back pain. And, the IM=X Pilates Studios offer Semi-Private Training Memberships so that you can receive the attention of a certified trainer without the price of one-on-one sessions plus unlimited reformer (Xercizer) workouts! The combination of strengthening, cardiovascular and lengthening exercises develops long, lean muscles, improves posture, increases metabolism and adds flexibility to the spine. IM=X pilates reformer (Xercizer) classes offer a unique approach to changing body composition (muscle to fat ratio). IM=X workouts attack excess bulk in the hips and thighs and tighten the body's core muscles for rock-hard abs. Our members consistently report a significant loss of inches from attending 3 sessions weekly. How do I get started in the IM=X® Pilates program? We recommend several private sessions to learn the technique and the patented reformer equipment (the Xercizer). Then you can join our Semi-Private Membership Program where there can be 2-8 participants per session and a wide variety of class formats which combine our reformer, mat, yoga, ballet bar, cycling, etc. As a Semi-Private Training Member you can attend as many sessions as you like with just one monthly fee. All of the personal trainers and instructors at the IM=X Pilates Studio franchise are qualified to provide you with this incredible training. Our franchises send their staff to our educational institute in New York City where they learn from Master Trainers who are leaders in the fitness industry. There are 9 levels of education provided to all franchise staff -- a process that is extensive, thorough and proprietary. Ask your studio owner which programs are available to you!

WHAT SELF MAGAZINE HAS TO SAY ABOUT IM=X PILATES:
"The IM=X® Pilates Method will strengthen the muscles surrounding your hips and lower spine... probably the most important thing you can do to make your stomach look flatter. In two weeks, you'll have better posture and more powerful muscles. But don't stop there! Within four weeks, you're bound to look great in any bare-back style, because a strong back is a sexy back -- and that feels good all over."
Quick, healthy + delicious. Greek yogurt w/ Granola or Grapenuts and fruit. A touch of Honey sweetens it up. Have a wonderful day, Everyone!

Feeling Great and I'm taller!
Thanks so much for the great workouts! In a little over a year, I have gotten so much stronger and more flexible! I have better energy for the long days. The classes are still interesting and the time flies. My posture is better too. I just had my annual physical and I'm half an inch taller!! It's such a nice group of people at the studio. I look forward to every session! - AG

WHAT ARE MEMBERS ARE SAYING ABOUT HOW PILATES HAS HELPED THEM:
NO MORE BACK PAIN
I'd like to take this opportunity to express my gratitude and tell you how much your studio helped me. It has been a year since I started classes in your studio, and I haven't had a single back pain episode since then. As you may know, I had been suffering from frequent debilitating back pain attacks for a long time. Different methods of treatment provided only temporary relief but did not prevent the back pain from coming back. The classes in your IMX Pilates studio helped me to strengthen and tone my body, and as the result, to get rid of the back pain. I find your classes very engaging with a good amount of personal attention. They became an important part of my life. I want to thank you and the other teachers for your wonderful work. - JK
Weight is just a number. Don't obsess over your weight. Focus on getting strong and feeling good.
