Just Announced: New Fitness StudiosTuesday, June 04th 2019
A pumped-up trio of new fitness studios is coming to Lake Nona. Prepare to welcome Florida’s first Neighborhood barre, Rukus Cycling Studios, and Club Pilates to our wellbeing community by the end of 2019.
All three fitness boutique offerings are owned by Lake Nona residents and will be conveniently located within the retail ground level of Pixon apartment community along Tavistock Lakes Boulevard.
Florida’s first location of Neighborhood barre will be owned by Lake Nona local and Director of Business Operations for U.S. Tennis Association (USTA) Player Development, Elizabeth Diaz. Diaz is excited to introduce the studio’s unique approach to Central Florida with a workout that combines the elements of dance conditioning and weight training designed for all skill levels.
“This studio will change your outlook on fitness with consistent, long-term results and approachable classes,” said owner Elizabeth Diaz. “We’re in a great location in Lake Nona and happy to be part of a community that makes wellbeing a priority. We look forward to meeting you at Neighborhood barre.”
Rukus Cycling Studios, a national boutique indoor cycling concept, will open in a 2,600-square-foot space with 44 stationary bikes. Rukus Lake Nona will be owned and operated by Lake Nona resident Jim Kilp.
Known for high-energy, immersive rides with a variety of class types, Rukus focuses on cardio and strengthening the upper body with its signature Rukus Resistance Bands. In addition to live classes, Rukus also offers classes on-demand in a dedicated room featuring live and encore rides from Rukus instructors.

Long-time Lake Nona resident Michelle Bethencourt will be the owner and operator of Club Pilates, a boutique Pilates studio that specializes in reformer fusion classes for all ages and fitness levels. The Lake Nona location will be the sixth in Central Florida featuring 12 stations with reformers and training area with TRX, springboard, and BOSU equipment.
The new fitness studios will join previously announced Pixon retail additions, including Foxtail Coffee and Island Fin Poké Co.
Fitness studio and retail customers will have access to Pixon’s striking main lobby featuring 16-foot-high ceilings, communal tables, comfortable seating, and traditional arcade games in a modern setting with concrete floors and colorful accents.
