Share Article

Former Radio City Rockettes® twins Katherine and Kimberly Corp recently introduced a brand new aerobic exercise program at their celebrated Manhattan fitness center, Pilates on Fifth ( ). Cardiolates® will be debuted worldwide March 2006 at the International Health and Racquet Sports Association Convention in Las Vegas, NV.

Amid the popularization of Pilates by celebrities, demand has grown for a complete workout that aids weight loss through cardiovascular exercise. Like Pilates, Cardiolates® strengthens core abdominal and lower back muscles, improving flexibility, posture, and coordination, without putting undue strain on joints or tendons. However, Cardiolates® also promotes cardiovascular health and weight loss and increases bone density by incorporating a "rebounder," a more durable version of a mini-trampoline.

"As with all exercise regimens, Cardiolates® requires focus and dedication, but it is also a lot of fun," explained Katherine Corp. "If exercise becomes a chore, people don't tend to stick with the program, so we developed Cardiolates® with both health and enjoyment in mind."

Additionally, Cardiolates® has shown itself to be effective in cancer rehabilitation. Benefits include improved range of motion, better posture, flexibility, and alleviation of lymphedema, a common post-surgical condition for breast cancer survivors. The Corp sisters are also program managers for the non-profit organization, Pink Ribbon Program, Inc., which seeks to aid breast cancer recovery through rehabilitative exercises.
