A pioneer of the Pilates method, Alycea Ungaro brought some of the very first mat Pilates classes to New York City. Her signature work and expert products have been growing and shaping the industry for decades.
Alycea expanded her popular Pilates classes into a fitness media empire. Her first multi-media project was the innovative Portable PilatesTM, an easy-to-use at-home mat workout. Best selling titles followed including; Pilates: Body in Motion, published in 2002, The Pilates Promise published in 2004, and The Pilates Practice Companion. Alycea has trained scores of celebrities including Madonna, Uma Thurman, Kyra Sedgwick, Claire Danes, and Molly Sims. Together with long-time client Christy Turlington, Alycea collaborated on a “Pilates Booty” for Puma. The booty was aptly named “The Alycea.”
Alycea was early to the digital game by partnering with Mobile Mind, Inc. to launch a cell phone version of Portable PilatesTM. This go-anywhere mini-workout, was designed to broaden Pilates accessibility. Her 15 Minute Everyday Pilates book and DVD has also been converted into a series of Vooks (video books) that are available for iPhones and iPads as well as the Amazon Kindle and the Android platform. The New York Times has hailed these Pilates Apps as the best on the market. She also created the patented Real Alignment Mat for the home exerciser. In 2012 Alycea launched the now popular SpringTone® class in her New York studio. SpringTone® is now licensed internationally to studios and trainers. 2013 saw the launch of Synthesis, Alycea’s Mentor Project which was designed to merge Pilates technique and business strategies into a unique learning platform for an exclusive group of studio owners. The Synthesis Mentor program runs annually. The latest addition to the Real Pilates roster of offerings is the comprehensive teacher training program where Alycea and her stellar team are grooming the next generation of Pilates teachers. When she isn’t training or teaching, Alycea is busy writing articles as the resident Pilates expert on About.com.
In addition to her Pilates expertise, Ungaro is a licensed physical therapist having graduated from New York University’s prestigious program. She is currently pursuing her Masters degree in Nutrition.
