In March 2014, CREW Pilates started out in a garage in Cape Town, South Africa. Since then, CREW Pilates has grown into an outdoor and on board training culture in the south of France where over a hundred yacht crew and other industry professionals have enjoyed sessions on the mat.
Owner and instructor Bianca Ljungberg is passionate about sharing Pilates with the yachting industry, charter guests and athletes. As ex-yacht crew, Bianca understands the physical demand of work on board and is familiar with delivering a high-end experience for her clients.
The CREW Pilates Studio opens its doors on Tuesday, 6 October 2015 and is an easy five-minute walk from the Quai des Milliardaires, Port Vauban. The Studio aims to be an inspirational Pilates training space for yachting locals and visitors from abroad. As a BASI-Affiliate studio, CREW Pilates will also become a place for instructors to learn from instructors.
It's a dream come true to share Pilates with the yachting community, says South African-born Bianca. Pilates combines the physical challenge with mental balance and it's for everyone.
CREW Pilates is known for its Pilates mat sessions, which are offered in signature outdoor locations and on board yachts of 40m+. With the change of seasons, outdoor mat sessions will move into the studio. On board sessions are available all year round.
The winter schedule offers a mix of 55-minute group sessions and private training, Monday to Thursday and every other Saturday. All sessions are given in English. For those who want additional cardio-training, The Antibes Running Club hosts free 5-8km runs from the CREW Pilates Studio every week.
A maximum of four clients can train in group sessions with instruction given on thick, Swedish SISSEL fitness mats. Mat work training includes work with the Theraband, Pilates Circle, soft ball, large ball, foam roller and leg weights.
The Studio also offers tailored private sessions on a Balanced Body Allegro 1 Reformer and Combo Chair, with plans to install two Pilates Springboards and a Ladder Barrel in early 2016. Barre stretching is also available.
Clients are welcome to enjoy the shower and change-room facilities, kitchenette with a selection of teas, coffee and natural flavoured water. For more details, email [email protected] or visit facebook.com/crewpilates.
