Matthew Wadiak, who found Pilates as a regimen to recuperate and strengthen his beat-up body from his day job as a private chef, opened Plank in the spring of 2011. The handsome, two-story spot features original stone walls, hardwood floors, and industrial-looking exposed beams. Both private and group classes are offered here, with many teachers hailing from renowned New York studios and prices starting at $25. Beginners can take advantage of introductory packages that discount classes further, and extra amenities like cucumber water, aromatherapy hot towels, and a cozy lounge add a layer of luxe.
