A native New Yorker, Jared created Studio 26 as an oasis in the city for New Yorkers to physically connect, empower, and thrive.
Jared draws upon his movement training (he danced professionally with nicholasleichterdance and Tiffany Mills Co.) and studies of Alexander Technique, Body-Mind-Centering , and other somatic disciplines to assist clients in achieving their full potential through movement. Having used Pilates and corrective exercise to rebound from his own athletic/dance injuries himself, Jared is proud to help other people recover. He has worked with clients with a wide range of injuries from scoliosis, osteoporosis, herniated discs, MS, Meniere’s disease, lower back pain and meniscus tears to pre-and post-natal clients and cancer survivors.
He has trained clients from ages 13 to 94, including executives, celebrities, editors, fitness and cover models, triathletes, chefs, body builders, gymnasts, professional dancers, other trainers and all kinds of weekend warriors. His specialty is creating tailored private workouts that are as functionally challenging as they are fun.
Simply put, Studio 26 is a healthy space where you improve your health. Studio 26 welcomes you with reclaimed wood, a skylight that floods bamboo floors and exposed brick walls in natural light, and a living/breathing green wall; all to create an oasis in the city, all by design.
Owner Jared Kaplan – an expert Pilates, CHEK Practitioner, personal trainer and movement coach – envisioned Studio 26 to help trainers thrive in a gorgeous, modern space with tactile and sexy interiors by acclaimed designer Nathan Thomas. It was designed as an eco-friendly, client-focused studio that is clean, private, fun and versatile.
Studio 26 offers many professional workshops that cycle throughout the year. Take a look at what is coming up soon by following the link below.
