This is such a great whole body workout. I wasn't familiar with Pilates so when I saw that they were offering a free trial class I thought I would try it out. I was curious to see what we would do on this "big black machine." Oh wow, I was so amazed on how the instructor had us do so many different things on this machine that targeted all different areas of the body. I was hooked after that first class. In fact, I encouraged my husband to try it and he loves it as well and is also hooked. All the instructors are very knowledgeable and very supportive. They will go around the class adjusting you and making sure you have the correct form. I truly appreciate that because I want to make sure I'm getting the full benefit of the excersice. This truly challenges your body and I have seen the changes in my body.....which I'm so excited about. Melissa, the owner, is one of the nicest people you'll meet and all the instructors are so friendly and make it such a fun atmosphere.
