Service FAQ

Why do I need to take 3 private sessions?

Duet and Circuit training are great ways to take Pilates with a friend at a great rate. However, it is important that I have a sense of your ability level and movement patterns and you are familiar with the equipment before starting one of these programs. The private sessions also give you an opportunity to privately ask questions, review medical history and review medications, etc that may effect your experience.

Why do you need to know my medical history?

Your medical history is important! Everyone practicing in this studio completes a Client Profile containing areas to note past surgeries, current challenges and a list of all medications you are taking. Also, by signing the Waiver you are acknowledging that you are cleared by a doctor to exercise.  Certain conditions and medications require modifications to movement and exercise, if I don’t have all the info I can’t protect you properly. Your continued health and safety is my first priority!

Is there an age limit?

In short no. Pilates was created based in part on the observation of children and animals and their efficiency of movement. That said, for younger people the work is modified until approximately age 12 or until the growth plates are closed. There is no upper age limit provided you are cleared for exercise by your doctor. I have worked with people from age 10 to age 80+. Just so you know an 80 year old that never took Pilates or Yoga before his 80th birthday was one of my fastest improving students. Truly a star!

What do I wear?

Pants or capris that are somewhat fitted to allow the movement of the body to be observed are perfect. Shorts and workout skorts are not recommended due to the various planes of movement. Fitted or semi fitted shirts or tank tops are ideal for on top. The basic goal is to be able to move freely, but enable me to see hyperextending elbows or bent knees or hula hips, to basically keep ya honest.

Duet Training

This program is designed for a team of two (2) training together for one hour sessions. Twice a week is ideal. The duet option is similar to private training in that goals are set and worked toward, however the sessions do not contain the same individual focus.

* Duet participants must meet with me for a minimum of three private sessions prior to the start of the Duet sessions. It is important that Duet teams are of a similar fitness level and ability to ensure that both see progress from a team centered program.

Duet training may be right for you if you:

  • Are a husband and wife team who enjoy working out together.
  • Like the motivation and additional camaraderie having a work out buddy provides.
  • Think accountability to two people is better than one.
  • Crave some regular Mom and daughter time that is fun and good for you
  • Want to support a loved one after an injury or surgery

My Pilates Story

My Pilates Story In the winter of 2006, my left knee joint was punctured in a car accident. Fortunately no one else was injured and the structure of my knee was relatively unaffected. I had around twenty stitches…

Why I do what I do.

Habits are invisible. Movement just happens. You don't actively think about how to stand up and walk across a room. Right?? Unless a foot or knee or hip are not working as they should then it can be tough or downright painful.

The human body is an amazing instrument and everyone’s is different. Some people have long limbs and short torsos, some have long torsos and short limbs, some are lean and naturally muscular, others work hard to build strength and even harder to gain and maintain flexibility, while more still have such flexibility in their elbows, knees, shoulders and hips that the muscles need to work overtime to protect them from injury. Or more commonly learn how to recover.

Pilates and Yoga Therapy are tools I have used to rehab injuries for myself and post-rehab with my clients. I know what it is like to work through an injury. It is extremely rewarding to guide my clients on their path to strengthen, re-balance, and improve their overall functional fitness.
