My personal experience with "Pilates 4 Women Only" has been life changing. I've tried so many forms of exercise and never had any courses like this. Michele offers an amazing variety of fun and challenging classes that I've never experienced before and now I don't know how I went without having these classes in my life. There's one thing that these classes have that others don't, which is Michele. Michele is so knowledgeable on fitness and has helped me obtain my goals and is constantly showing me ways to continue to get stronger and is such an amazing mentor. She goes above and beyond and blew my expectations out of the water. This place is extraordinary. ❤ - Alex H.
I almost don't want to review Pilates 4 Women Only...simply because I don't want the secret out and more people coming. It's just that great, and I want it all to myself. But Michelle is AMAZING, and the world can't go one day longer without knowing it. She is an all around incredible athlete with a wealth of knowledge about fitness, healthy eating, and what to do to keep your body well. - Jenny M.
"I highly recommend this studio! I have met Michele when she was a group instructor and a personal trainer at another gym. She helped me lose over 20lbs and over 9% body fat in about 4-5 months, although I had significant injuries that limited my performance (knee, shoulder, low back). She was very perceptive and took into consideration my injuries, my goals, and my preferences (and I am very particular in what I like and do not like) and made every workout extremely efficient, challenging, interesting, and enlightening. Michele chose exercises that focused on strength, stretch and endurance at the same time, getting the most of every workout. Results did not take long to appear, and I am absolutely happy with my fitness level. Now, since she opened her own studio and since I reached my weight loss goals, I take group classes at her studio to improve my body further. In a small group setting (4-5 people), she gives each person enough attention to make sure each move is performed correctly to maximize the result and safely to avoid injuries. She offers a great variety of classes for any taste (plus personal training of course). Among others, I love Pilates Fusion (great for strength, endurance, stretch, and cardio - in one class) and Piloga (great for strength and stretch). Michele's incredible level of expertise is matched with her sweet personality." - Irina N.
I've been really burnt out on my old workout regime and definitely putting on the extra pounds as a result. I decided to give this studio a whirl to see if I could pull myself out of the slump and Michelle has far exceeded my expectations. She provides a lot of individual attention, and is helping me to correct alignment issues connected to an old injury which were starting to become problematic. - Lauryn C
I've tried all sorts of other gyms, studios, workouts, but I always came back to Michele because there's really nothing else like her classes. I'VE BEEN WITH MICHELE FOR THE LAST 3 YEARS, and the classes are intimate, affordable, extremely easy to schedule, Fun, and definitely produce results! Michele makes it easy to push yourself and enjoy your workout all at the same time. ANd she offers a range of class styles that I haven't found at any other studio. Her expertise and passion for helping others achieve their health goals is obvious from the second you meet her. I cannot express my gratitude enough for all MIchele has done for me! - Kelsey G.
I have chronic back pain and have injured myself trying to improve my fitness by being a little over-zealous. I scheduled an intro with Michelle who was so gentle, as were her exercises...I asked Michele if she could give me a handout after our demo session with the exercises she went over and she said she would email me some youtube videos. I guess she couldn't find any, because she MADE videos, put them on her website, and emailed me those. How sweet is that? - Deepa S.
Pilates for Women Only is an excellent program. I have been doing pilates training with Michele for a couple months now. When I was in high school, I was on the swim team. My shoulder had been out of place ever since then. My right shoulder would pop out slightly while my left would stay in place. It made it extremely difficult for me to do certain weight lifting exercises, such as lateral raises and flys. After training with michele, she was able to help me re-teach my muscles in my right shoulder how to stay in the correct place. The pilates exercises were able to "fix" those little muscles that may normally not be used too often in typical weight training. My shoulder feels amazing now! In addition, the pilates training increased my flexibility, strength, and posture. When I walk around, I feel so light on my feet! It is incredible. Michele is a gifted and intelligent teacher. She genuinely cares about her clients and always puts their best interests first. She knows all the aspects of pilates training in and out. I would recommend this pilates training to any woman. It is nothing but a positive and rewarding experience. Thank you Michele!! - Alisa O.
Michelle is the best trainer in the world. And I don't say that lightly! She really is amazing. She motivates you to lead a healthy lifestyle and enjoy exercising. - Lina K.
She really prepared my body for all the physical stress pregnancy brings. Because of her classes, I didn't suffer through the classic pains of pregnancy. It also helped keep my energy level up as well...Six weeks post-partum I started back up in her classes, after clearance from my doctor of course. Now, 4 months later, I am almost back to my pre-pregnancy weight thanks to Michele. - V.N.
Michele has seriously changed my life! For years, I struggled finding a work out I actually enjoyed. I'd join gyms and take classes for short periods of time but I always hated going and eventually would give up. I was out of shape when first visiting Michele and she immediately made me feel so comfortable and welcomed...Not only am I more toned and lean, but she has focused on improving my posture which really needed some attention and improvement. - Ashley C.
Michele has been my trainer for almost 6 years & there's a reason I'm still with her: she is incredibly knowledgable, personable, accommodating, & can push me to get the results I want. This woman changed my life in more ways than I can explain in a review. First, she knows fitness front to back & she couples that understanding to tailor an individual program to fit your needs. I had been recovering from surgery & injuries (back, shoulder, knee, ankle) but Michele was capable of noticing how to not just work around my limitations but to actually work at making the muscles in my core stronger (without injuring my back!) through a regimen of pilates, kettlebells, cardio, etc. - Brynne H.
