“Pilates has it all! It is such a mindful, truly enjoyable way to become more lean…to get stronger and more flexible …to really stretch and tone the body without injury…and to walk around somewhat taller. It has been part of my life for fifteen years and I feel so lucky to have found Uptown Pilates as my home studio six years ago.
I am working now with Adrienne and Brooke and have been doing so for the past 2-3 years. They are both knowledgeable and great instructors and I find that alternating keeps it interesting. They know that I like to spend the last 10 minutes on arms, arms, arms…and the results are impressive. I have worked with several other great instructors at Uptown Pilates over the years, and can honestly say that I have never had a disappointing session. The studio itself is well equipped, welcoming and everyone is very kind, which helps take care of half the battle…getting there!”

“My foremost reaction on encountering the studio’s serene, light and airy ambience for the first time was;’ how does one perspire here’? And then; ‘I would be embarrassed to perspire here’. That was almost two years ago. Since then, the excelllent, excellent people at Uptown Pilates have turned a sedentary, flighty person like myself into someone who will come to exercise at least twice a week. I am a zealous convert to both, pilates as an exercise regimen, and Uptown Pilates as the best venue; with its group of dedicated, professional and charming instructors. And yes one does perspire; profusely. But its fun.”

“After Ev left, I did not think I would find an instructor who I could relate to in the same manner. Interestingly, he reminds me of a younger version of Ev, with many similar characteristics. Marcos is soft spoken, listens to your needs and addresses them. As in any new relationship, two people must spend time together and acquaint themselves. He takes all of my injuries into account and gives me exercises that work for me. He even had a list of alternative methods to try, written down, before my 2nd session with him! He makes Pilates interesting by thinking outside “the box”. I have been doing Pilates for 15 years and always hated the exercises on the reformer. Marcos made the reformer fun (yet hard) today. I can’t believe I am spent the entire hour on the reformer…That is something I have never done!”
