Only a few doors down from Nadia Cakes, Club Pilates Arbor Lakes opens Monday, June 6 as one of the first fitness options at The Fountains at Arbor Lakes in Maple Grove. 

Franchise-owned by Vadnais Heights residents and husband/wife team Brent and Kate Ras, the duo has become the first to open a Club Pilates location in Minnesota. 

"We liked the corporate culture of Club Pilates," Brent said of their decision to work with the franchise. "It's like a startup, but with more freedom."

Their Maple Grove location at 11658 Fountains Drive includes multiple classes with 12 reformers in the studio plus a private room. The Maple Grove site has approximately 10 employees, including several qualified trainers.  

During their first week of classes (June 6-10), Club Pilates in Maple Grove is planning on hosting a variety of basic free demonstration classes. Registration is required by contacting Club Pilates Arbor Lakes.

After the first week, Club Pilates will offer 50-minute classes for all levels in a small fitness setting, but large enough to lower class prices for participants and provide an opportunity for more people to experience pilates. 

"We're super excited to open in Maple Grove," General Manager Emily Ritter said. "The community has been amazing, so welcoming."
