Last week, we had the honor of hosting the most fabulous birthday bash celebrating 10 years of Pilates Platinum. What started out as a dream-turned-one-studio-in-Hollywood for founder Heather Dorak turned into four beautiful studios throughout the Los Angeles area, thousands of happy clients and a lasting footprint on LA's fitness scene.
Pilates Platinum presents a fun, innovative approach to fitness. The workout marries cardio and strength training in a 55-minute session on the state-of-the-art Megaformer, with the potential to burn up to 700 calories per workout. With the understanding that our minds and bodies crave change, Pilates Platinum instructors never repeat the same workout twice, providing what the body needs each and every class. The small group instruction setup (no more than 14 participants per class) serves as a semi-private session with individualized attention and assistance to enhance the studio's full-body fat burning and conditioning curriculum.
Dorak fell in love with the workout as soon as she experienced her first workout on a Megaformer, or a revolutionary version of the typical Pilates machine. She saw incredible results after just a short time, and her passion for health and fitness inspired her to open her own first studio in 2006. A small goal of introducing this amazing workout to the local community thrived and grew into what Pilates Platinum is today.
Ten years is kind of a big deal, so of course we had to celebrate in a big way. The guest list included LA's top fitness influencers, movers and shakers and of course Pilates Platinum's loyal clients! Attendees came ready to sweat, enjoying an evening full of pop-up shops, light bites, spirits, guest speakers, sponsored gift bags and mini Pilates sessions. DJ Monika Santucci kept the good vibes flowing with an upbeat mix of empowering oldies and today's top hits.
Thank you to everyone who came out and celebrated with us! It really was the best.night.ever! Enjoy clicking through the photo collage below!
