Pilates studio opens up new digs

Center for Balance unveils new studio

Mountain View's longstanding Pilates studio Center of Balance will open its doors next week on its new North Bayshore studio, located just one block from its old digs.

The fitness center -- one of the first Pilates studios in the Bay Area -- originally opened 18 years ago in a renovated industrial space off Pear Avenue. In recent months, the Center for Balance and other neighboring businesses, such as the Pear Avenue Theatre, had to close up after property owner Google decided the warehouse space would be redeveloped into tech offices.

The Center of Balance was among the former tenants that received help with relocating, moving to a 5,000-square-foot facility at 1110 La Avenida Ave. Husband-and-wife owners Tom McCook and Karen deMoor said the new studio include state-of-the-art exercise equipment and renovated rooms.

The new studio will open on Nov. 9.
