A MESSAGE FROM THE STUDIO OWNERS
We passionately believe in the transformative power of practicing Pilates. Both of us have been involved in the fitness industry since 1995 and have acquired various certifications in personal training, aerobics, yoga, and pilates; however, when we discovered Pilates through the perspective of individualized technique driven training, we were forever changed! This is NOT the method of pilates that we originally started with so many years prior to 2005, that we now lovingly refer to as "gym pilates". We only feel comfortable saying it in this way, because we were both, in fact, at one time "gym rats" trained in a quickie one day certification program to teach Pilates, and although we learned pilates movements, we did not understand the depth of the technique involved. Once we began a much more intensive track in our pilates training, we quickly learned the difference, and have never looked back!
Since 2006, we have been fully invested and focused specifically on training in Pilates by using mat, equipment, and various props. Step one of our journey began in 2006 with completing our PCC Certification in both Mat and Reformer, which required over 200 hours of training, including self-practice, video reviews of apprentice hours, and testing. Since then, we have traveled all over the country to obtain specific training in EXO chair, ARC, Cadillac, and props by some of the biggest names in the Pilates Industry today. We are committed to this idea of whole body health.
Fitness is more than aesthics, It is well-being in every way, and our goal is to help each and every one of you continue to work in that direction! Our promise to you, is that we will always do our best to provide you with the highest quality of training, that we we will work with you to specifically meet your individual goals, and that we will always give as much as we have, as often as we can to provide a positive experience at The Absolute Studio!
