Do you feel like you are in a rut with your At Home Pilates sessions? Are you aching for some variety and new challenges?
Since it looks like we are all going to need to stay home a little longer, our instructors are planning to up the ante for you by incorporating props into their classes. Don’t worry!! We’ll give you a couple of weeks to get your arsenal together.
Don’t want to order and buy your own? We also have a limited number of prop sets available for you to rent from us directly.
Here are all the details:
OPTION 1: Rent your props from Core!
For a low monthly fee of $20, get what you need from us. Perfect if you don’t have a ton of space or want to get your hands on some of the more expensive or harder to find options.
- A MELT Foam Roller
- A Magic Circle
- A Ball
- A Set of Hand Weights
- A Theraband (this will be yours to keep)
Want a cushy Core mat as well? Add it to your rental for an additional $5 a month.

Resistance Bands – These are specifically recommended for Nikki’s Pilates + Strength Class. You could get by with just Therabands but resistance bands definitely work better for certain exercises.

Foam Roller – There are several different types. We recommend you pick according to what you intend to use it for. MELT Rollers are what we have in studio and are softer and can be used for MELT Method Exercises. The OPTP Pro Roller and SPRI Roller are more firm, offer more stability, and are good for traditional rolling. They should not be used for MELT. Be sure to buy the 36″ version!
