"This is the first time I have tried any form of exercise in my 53 years.
I was nervous and was not sure I could do it or have the confidence to enter the class. Erica made me feel welcome and was very sensitive to my situation. She made sure that I was safely on the table at all times, and gave me the confidence to keep going. Because of her, I would now go to a regular gym and not feel insecure. She is incredible and everyone should at least try Total Body Pilates. I love it! "
Coming here has been a huge help to my strength,I have scoliosis.
I feel (even after 9 classes) that my core is getting a lot stronger, and as the days go by, I can tell a difference! I really like that the classes are geared toward people of all shapes sizes and abilities, and it feels like a little community in there with everyone supporting one another. I have recommended this place to several of my friends and my sisters! I will be continuing!
The first time I came into the studio, I felt welcomed.
The studio has a great ambience and it's amazing how much better I look and feel. Erica is a great instructor and fun (which makes it all the better for me to really enjoy my workout)!
I am so glad I started going, I really look forward to "my time" knowing that I'm doing something to make my life better. Just love this place!
I love Total Body Pilates!
I had never tried reformer Pilates before and was nervous going in for my first class but Erica was great and I always felt like the classes were attainable for people at all levels of fitness! After one month of classes I feel stronger and especially have a tighter core now. I will for sure keep coming here and I recommend to anyone looking for a good workout class to tone up that is also fun!
Wow! I love Pilates, the instructors and this studio at TOTAL BODY PILATES
I have been wanting to do Pilates for a long time, since I have seen the obvious benefits it has brought to others. In the past, I have tried several times to get going with Pilates, but it never clicked with me. So about a month ago, I met the owner Erica at a social event, and long story short, she told me about an awesome 5 pass Groupon deal for the studio. So I tried it, and by the third class I was totally hooked. So right then and there I signed up,for a monthly unlimited pass. I have done a lot of moving arts and body work during my lifetime and developed a deep awareness of what happens with my musculature when it changes. In these Pilates classes, I often get goose bumps, from the resulting changes I experience.
I also have a messed up L5 on my spine, and the core strength I am developing is really improving my mobility, reducing the back pain, and sciatica issues. I am 6 ft 5 inches tall, and my gut is really trimming down fast. I was wearing XXXL clothing, and just last week I was so pleased that I fit in a XXL jacket, and I ended up buying it. Even getting out of bed in the morning, or bending down to pickup things and load the dishwasher has become a joy.
The instructors are all fun and yet very different, that variety mixes things up, so I never get bored, which is a big deal for me. The classes are just hard enough to make me wish at times I was somewhere else, and yet when that happens, I just concentrate more on going deeper into the moves, and end up getting more goose bumps from what is happening to my body. I always leave the classes feeling much better, than when I walked in.
The studio is beautiful, and I feel very at home there. It is sort of like walking into a sanctuary for my peace of mind during my busy days. I only have one regret about Pilates, and that is, that I didn't start doing it when I was a kid. And I only have one regret about this studio, and that is, that it is right next to a Pizza place, so that in the evenings when I walk out of class I am tormented by the wonderful smells of fresh hot pizza. It is kind of bitter sweet, I love that smell and it makes my stomach grumble. I have yet to cave in buying a Pizza yet... though it is getting time to buy another pass to this studio. I am amazed at the changes that have happened to me in just one month.
