What is a typical session of your program or class like for a student?

We keep our class sizes small to ensure a welcoming, safe, and fun environment for women.

Starr Bunch spent 20 years working in early childhood development, but when she started taking Pilates classes, her life changed. In founding Five Starr Pilates & Fitness, Starr and her fellow instructors inspire that same level of passion in others. On Pilates reformer machines and stationary bikes, they challenge exercisers with workouts that change up and stay fun. Those looking to blend both disciplines can take the reformer-cycling combination class that's taught by a very rare centaur. The chic, robin's egg- and slate-colored facility also serves as the setting for personal training sessions.
