I have been taking Pilates classes at this wonderful studio, Personalized Pilates for 8 years. I come and go from Canada and each time that I return, I am so welcomed and feel right at home.
The instructors are so well trained, qualified and friendly.
The classes, whether group or private all provide individual attention.
The equipment and facility make each session, new and challenging.
The management (Larry) has been more than helpful and accommodating to me all of these years.
I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND TAKING CLASSES AT PERSONALIZED PILATES!
