Fitness Magazine

“Don’t Call It Pilates. IM=X is not Pilates or the Alexander Technique, but it is based on both disciplines…IM=X was developed for the general public and the back care version for people with back problems…it not only develops long, lean muscles and flexibility, but also strengthens the spine and back… The routines are designed to not only tone and elongate muscles but also to improve posture…So try them and start reaping the benefits.”

PilatesStyle Magazine

“Stepping the intensity up a notch, IM=X incorporates cardio and strength-training elements for optimal sculpting success…utilizing pelvic and ribcage stabilization techniques. Save up your energy for the plyometric jump segments sprinkled throughout the workout which was created by exercise physiologist Elyse McNergney…”


Shape Magazine

I had a fitness epiphany in a class called IM=X. Created by Elyse McNergney, M.Ed., M.A., IM=X stands for Integrated Movement Exercise…Think: Group Pilates class…Each repetition demanded extreme concentration. My legs shook because despite all my training, they didn’t recognize – and couldn’t handle – the new movements…I broke a sweat and was thrilled to feel the lower part of my abs burn…The IM=X class passed my fitness test: I was sore and sweaty. But, more than that, the next morning my run seemed a little boring in comparison.”

Physical Magazine

“Here is one equation that will keep you fit! The benefits of of an IM=X workout have been discovered by such bodybuilders as former Mr. America and Mr. World Bill Grant. Many pro athletes, including members of the New York Mets use it…IM=X offers a cross-conditioning system focusing on muscle efficiency through posture and core endurance. The comprehensive program includes resistance training, plyometrics and innovative formats…IM=X brings intensity and efficiency to functional-strength and flexibility training.”

Fitness Magazine

“The Newest Pilates Workout. What’ the trendiest class on the coasts? Integrated Movement Exercise (IMX). It’s loosely based on pilates — a muscle toning and flexibility program –but IMX packs more of a strength-training punch. IMX pioneer Elyse McNergney leads exercisers through a series of toning and stretching moves on a sturdier version of the pilates reformer (The Xercizer) …You’ll gladly groan through the 30-60 minutes of body shaping.”

Fit Magazine

“These moves are designed not only to tone and elongate your muscles, but also to improve your posture and help your back. So try them and start reaping the benefits”

Women’s Fitness

“Pilates equipment and classes are enjoying a new audience and are now available at many health clubs. However I recently found a method of training that uses aspects of pilates but is geared towards the non-dancer…This method is called IM=X which stands for Integrated Movement Xercize. Based on pilates, IM=X puts more emphasis on strength…If you do the exercises consistently, with proper form, you will see and feel the difference!
