A non-profit to provide Authentic Pilates at a free or need based sliding scale fee to military personnel and veterans who have been injured as a result of their service.
NextStep Pilates Program
The NextStep Pilates program includes a series of ten free one-on-one sessions with trained instructors followed by a careful assessment and additional one-on-one or group training on the mat as needed. Lessons are taught at Studio Body Logic studios in Alexandria and Arlington and designed to address veteran needs and challenges.
Created by Joseph Pilates, the Pilates Method is an exercise system focused on improving flexibility and strength for the total body. Joseph Pilates worked most of his life on developing and refining his exercise system and the principles governing it. Much of it was developed during a period of internment he suffered during World War I. He worked with minimal resources to help his fellow internees overcome the wounds of war and develop body and muscle strength. Today’s returning veterans, especially those injured in the defense of our country, can greatly benefit from Joseph Pilates’ programs.

"I had the benefit of taking advantage of ten free sessions offered by Studio Body Logic® and can honestly say that the program along with the support and first-class treatment that the (SBL) staff offered was critical in me being able to redeploy to Afghanistan".

Operation Turbo 5k Race
Local Fairfax, VA Attorney Karin Riley Porter is sponsoring the Washington D.C. Operation Turbo 5K race and is encouraging members of the community to participate.
Proceeds from the race will help to deliver care packages, or “little boxes of home” as they call it, to our deployed U.S. military troops.
This is a perfect opportunity for community members to come together and run for a deserving cause on August 13, 2017, in Georgetown, Washington, DC.
Make sure to stop by our booth for a chance to grab well-earned swag bags after enduring a long run!
For more information on the race and to register, visit our website here.
