Born in Milan (Italy) in 1984 from a French mother and Italian father, Cloè spent her early years experiencing any kind of sport activity until 1998, when she discovered Pilates and utterly fell in love with it.

Graduated as Food Scientist in Italy, in 2008 she left her home town to join the European Master Degree in Food Studies program and became a Scientific Researcher for the Food Industry. During this time, Cloè was practicing Pilates all over Europe.

In 2012 Cloè chose to turn her early passion not just into a way of life but also in her professional commitment. She became a Pilates Teacher at the CovaTech Pilates School in Milan, a CARDIOLATES® Teacher Trainer with Barbara Morini and, a short time later, P.A.I. Pilates and CARDIOLATES® Master Trainer at PilatesOnFifth in New York, with Katherine and Kimberly Corp.

PILATES is a form of exercise, developed by Joseph H. Pilates, which emphasizes the balanced development of the body through core strength, flexibility, and awareness in order to support efficient, graceful movement

Instead of just working on the vanity muscles – the muscles you see in the mirror – PILATES strengthens the postural muscles – the internal, stabilizing muscles of your body – so that your posture, balance and core strength all improve while you sculpt the body of your dreams!

CARDIOLATES® is an exciting exercise program which combines the cardiovascular and physiological benefits of REBOUNDING with the core strengthening and alignment principles of PILATES

“CARDIOLATES® originated from a desire to find the perfect aerobic complement to the Pilates program.”

Pilates is a thoughtful mind-body system of exercise that requires attention to detail, form and alignment. Giving particular attention to core strengthening, Pilates movements are not intended to be conducted at an aerobic pace. Pilates tones muscles very effectively, but a cardiovascular regime is necessary to burn unwanted fat.

Because rebounding involves an unstable surface – a buoyant mat – CARDIOLATES® requires dynamic stability. This naturally strengthens the core while achieving a cardio regime that upheld, and even reinforced, alignment principles in upright posture.

Existing rebounding programs exist, but attention to alignment is missing. Since CARDIOLATES® integrates rebounding with alignment principles, one can burn fat while improving alignment and posture. Other CARDIOLATES® benefits include increased agility, coordination, balance and proprioception.



Practicing Pilates is serious stuff and we want to make sure that you get the most out of your training session at Pilates Academy.

That’s why a maximum of 3 people can exercise together on the Pilates Equipment, while for Matwork and CARDIOLATES® classes no more that 5 people are accepted at once.

All lessons last for 55 minutes and are classified as Silver, Gold or Platinum level according to the participants’ training experience.

Pilates Matwork

Being alone with our own body is the best way to enhance our corporal awareness and perception, but also the hardest. During these on-floor training sessions, challenges do not only come from the progression of Matwork exercises, but also from using a set of Pilates props (balls, foam rollers, magic circles, weights, elastic bands and other accessories) that produce a fun and varied workout.

Pilates Equipment

You haven’t experienced all about Pilates if you have never trained on it’s dedicated equipment. Specifically conceived and designed by Joseph Pilates, the Universal Reformer, Trapeze Table (Cadillac), Chair, Ladder Barrel and Step Barrel really mean a difference. At Pilates Academy you can find the whole brand-new set of equipment, manufactured in the US by Balanced Body, the world’s leading provider of safe and high-quality Pilates apparatus.


CARDIOLATES® is an exciting exercise program which combines the cardio- vascular and physiological benefits of Rebounding with the core strengthening and alignment principles of Pilates.
This Cardio-Pilates experience brings fat-burning and upright alignment training to your Pilates classes, together with a lot of FUN! All our CARDIOLATES® Classes are performed on bellicon® dynamic tram-polines: the world’s premier quality rebounder, directly from Germany.
