CARDIOLATES® is an exciting exercise program which combines the cardiovascular and physiological benefits of REBOUNDING with the core strengthening and alignment principles of PILATES
“CARDIOLATES® originated from a desire to find the perfect aerobic complement to the Pilates program.”
Pilates is a thoughtful mind-body system of exercise that requires attention to detail, form and alignment. Giving particular attention to core strengthening, Pilates movements are not intended to be conducted at an aerobic pace. Pilates tones muscles very effectively, but a cardiovascular regime is necessary to burn unwanted fat.
Because rebounding involves a malleable surface – a buoyant mat – CARDIOLATES® requires dynamic stability. This naturally strengthens the core while achieving a cardio regime that upholds and even reinforces your alignment as well as improving your posture.
Many rebounding programs exist, but don’t focus enough on attention to body alignment. Since CARDIOLATES® integrates rebounding with alignment principles, one can burn fat while improving alignment and posture. Other CARDIOLATES® benefits include increased agility, coordination, balance and proprioception.
Katherine & Kimberly Corp
Katherine and Kimberly Corp started Pilates on Fifth in August of 2000 with the dream of creating an elegant and unpretentious Pilates studio.
The former Radio City Rockettes had used Pilates during their rigorous performing schedules to stay healthy and injury-free and immediately saw the potential to help all population types develop healthy movement habits. Though competition in the fitness industry can be challenging in Manhattan, the twins relied on their passion for movement, their genuine desire to help others and their strong educational background to carry them through.
Today, their studio has grown to be Manhattan’s largest Pilates studio, with over 5,500 square feet, and they employ over 40 full and part-time instructors, most of whom they trained themselves. Additionally, they have trained over 400 fitness professionals worldwide to teach Pilates safely and effectively.
Katherine and Kimberly first obtained their Pilates certification through STOTT PILATES® and were Instructor Trainers for the company from 2001 to 2005. In January 2006 they formed the Pilates Academy International, the educational arm of Pilates on Fifth, aimed at producing knowledgeable, inspirational, confident and competent Pilates instructors who can work with populations of all ages and fitness levels.
Katherine and Kimberly developed CARDIOLATES® in 2006, a dynamic new exercise program which integrates the alignment principles of Pilates with the physiological and cardiovascular benefits of rebounding. CARDIOLATES® is a fun way to get fit and detoxify without the stress to the joints of typical cardio activity.
They enhanced their Pilates certifications by becoming Cancer Exercise Specialists and subsequently co-founded Pro-Health Pilates, Inc. a non-profit corporation comprised of “Pink Ribbon Pilates” for breast cancer survivors and “Heart Smart Pilates” for clients at risk for cardiovascular disease. They are both certified GYROTONIC® and GYROKINESIS® instructors as well as ACE and National Academy of Sports Medicine certified personal trainers.
Born in Milan (Italy) in 1984 from a French mother and Italian father, Cloè spent her early years experiencing any kind of sport activity until 1998, when she discovered Pilates and utterly fell in love with it.
Graduated as Food Scientist in Italy, in 2008 she left her home town to join the European Master Degree in Food Studies program and became a Scientific Researcher for the Food Industry. During this time, Cloè was practicing Pilates all over Europe.
In 2012 Cloè chose to turn her early passion not just into a way of life but also in her professional commitment. She became a Pilates Teacher at the CovaTech Pilates School in Milan, a CARDIOLATES® Teacher Trainer with Barbara Morini and, a short time later, P.A.I. PILATES and CARDIOLATES® Master Trainer at PilatesOnFifth in New York, with Katherine and Kimberly Corp.
Cloè has been passionately working in several renowned Pilates Centers and Rehabilitation Clinics in Milan, where she also opened her own Chloé Pilates Studio. In 2015 she decided to move to the UAE and commit herself to Pilates Academy Dubai.
Appreciated for her competent approach and coaching skills, Cloè combines her strong scientific background and lively personality to offer unique training and courses. She is proud to be the first Master Trainer bringing the benefits of CARDIOLATES® to the Arab countries.
