The Workshop Pilates is opening its third Valley location at the new Arcadia Improvement Club, 3802 E. Indian School Road.

The Workshop’s Arcadia location will be home to the Valley’s first-ever ‘Infrared Heated Mat’ Pilates class, featuring a detoxifying 95-degree workout, warmed by infrared heat to improve flexibility and cardiovascular conditioning, according to a press release.

“We saw the need for an Infrared Heated Mat Pilates concept in the Valley and we knew The Workshop was the perfect studio to bring the burn,” said Ariel Schwartz, co-owner of The Workshop Pilates. “Heated fitness has so many benefits to the body and mind, including boosted immunity, detoxification, pain relief and reduced blood pressure. We have no doubt that the Arcadia community will love it just as much as we do.”

The new studio is a proud tenant of the historic building previously occupied by Madison Improvement Club, which closed its doors in August 2023. The Workshop will carry on the fitness tradition in the newly-named Arcadia Improvement Club. The 5,264 square-foot space will additionally feature space for an esthetician practice and a fresh-made juice bar, the release states.

Built in 1917, the historic location was once a fundamental meeting space for pioneer women to discuss politics, agriculture, education, music and art. In 2012, The Madison Improvement Club opened a community for fitness enthusiasts, spin lovers and yogis after its initial refurbishment.

“We know fitness is at the core of this historic space, and we can’t wait to bring The Workshop’s Pilates principles to Arcadia,” said Jackie Parks, co-owner. “We believe in the power of Pilates to transform lives. We look forward to strengthening bodies and our community bonds in this tight-knit neighborhood.”
