About Flex PilatesEvery studio has a story. This is ours.
The Flex Pilates Movement
Hollywood’s hottest celebrity workout comes to the Midwest! Trained in Beverly Hills, owner Tracy Zindell discovered hybrid Pilates in 2004 as a way to build muscle and bring harmony into her hectic lifestyle. After seeing and feeling immediate muscular changes in her body she was hooked after her first week.
It wasn’t long before Hollywood stars also caught onto the hybrid Pilates craze. Celebs starting popping into her classes and hybrid Pilates quickly became a phenomena in LA. It was a no-brainer for Tracy to bring her dynamic, high intensity format of Pilates home to Chicago — And in 2012, opened Flex Pilates Chicago inside what once was the Schwinn bicycle factory.
Voted the Best Pilates workout in Chicago by Citysearch, Flex is a boutique reformer studio located in the heart of River North.
