Client Testimonials

"Through my practice of Pilates, I have learned that I don't have to work out at the gym to get a good workout, physically and mentally. My posture has improved and my muscles have become leaner. I don't injure myself and I feel better in general."

-Joni Lutzky, 1 ½ years

"[Equilibrium] has helped me before and after my hip replacement and continues to help me with arthritic joints, keeping them moving with less pain."

-Judy Levy, 9 years

"My injuries have improved to such a great degree that I am not only able to do my daily activities with ease, but also to perform movements in my dance classes, which I have been restricted from doing for several years...the studio is a friendly, comfortable environment, I would come every day if I could!"

-Rebekah Tigano, 10 months

"Fantastic instructors and staff!"

-Chad Hoskins, 6 months

-Diane Calesnick, 8 years

"The staff I worked with is caring and good observers of how I use my body-they were flexible in how they modified exercises so that I could improve without hurting myself."

-Solomon Levy, 9 years

"I have more energy now and I feel more energized and clear at work as well. Pilates is the best way to wake up in the morning!"

-Eliza Hoskins, 1 year

"Greater strength overall, maintaining my upright posture and flexibility."

-Judy Levy, 9 years

"...a drastic reduction in back aches, much better posture, far less impact of my (generally problematic) knees. I notice these changes when I catch myself sitting taller, adjusting my muscles when I stand and walk, moving from my core. I feel stronger, but more importantly, I feel like I'm finally learning to mobilize parts of my body correctly for my long term fitness...Patience is an incredibly motivating instructor."

-Jill Rappoport, 9 months

"My body is completely transformed. With just two sessions a week, I've gone from a normal and unhealthy mind, body and spirit to one that I can be proud of. It has kept me focused and fit. Even when I am not in the studio, Pilates makes my whole life that much more wonderful."

-Anonymous-male, 8 months

"The staff (Brie and Patience) is incredibly patient and observant and demanding."

-Judy Levy, 9 years

"My body changed completely, and mentally, it is like doing yoga."

-Amparo Stetina, 8 months

"After having two pregnancies (C-sections), Pilates has helped me lose all the weight that I had gained and strengthened my non-existing stomach muscles! [I have noticed] a stronger core, better posture, more flexibility and weight maintenance."

-Debbie Graci, 11 months

"As a senior citizen, it has helped with overall strength and flexibility; I was extremely tight and inflexible...The staff I've worked with is caring and good observers of how I use my body."

-Solomon Levy, 9 years

"I love the fact that Equilibrium works with what I have-injuries and limitations included-always pushing me further, but encouraging me to listen to my own body rather than measuring it against others. I'm enjoying the process as much as the results."

-Jill Rappoport, 9 months

"I am so grateful to have found Equilibrium, the best studio and people I have ever met! Thank you so much."
